Frappuccino Fridays: Cinnamon Dolce

Vegan Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino | A Dash of Compassion

Happy Frappuccino Friday once again! I’ve been really enjoying these end-0f-the-week treats, and I hope you have been too. So far, we’ve indulged in Java Chip, Hazelnut, Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée, Green Tea Cream, Chai Crème and Double Chocolate Chip. That’s quite a list!

Today, I bring you another one of my favourite flavours: Cinnamon Dolce. This sweet and creamy beverage is a simple blend of bold, dark-roasted coffee, coconut milk and ice, but the flavour is heightened with ground cinnamon and Medjool dates, then it’s topped with heavenly coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

It is such a warming flavour on this cooler summer morning. And sipping it in this particular mug makes me feel so Game of Thrones. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Dolce frappuccino

Yield: 1 serving


For the coconut whipped cream:

  • 1 (13.5oz) can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
  • 2 to 3 tsp agave nectar or other sweetener
  • seeds from 1 vanilla bean

For the frappuccino:

  • 1/2 cup strong coffee, chilled
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (canned)
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ice cubes


  1. To make the coconut whipped cream, scoop the cream from the top of the can of coconut milk, reserving the water at the bottom of the can for other uses.
  2. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the coconut cream until smooth and fluffy. Add sweetener and vanilla seeds and continue to whip until incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to use. (This can be made a day ahead, if desired.)
  3. To make the frappuccino, blend together all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and frothy. Pour into a tall glass, top with coconut whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon and serve!

    I absolutely thought Game of Thrones when I saw that flagon of yours, too.

      I can just imagine Tyrion Lannister drinking out of a mug just like this one. :)

    We both have a weakness for cinnamon! This looks delicious and the medieval mug is awesome.

      Thanks, Cindy! Yes, we definitely have a weakness for cinnamon. :)

    Wow! You’ve really outdone yourself with this plating. Beautiful! I can only imagine how wonderfully creamy and indulgent this coffee must feel with the full-fat coconut milk and coconut whipped cream. Fabulous!

      Thanks, Cadry! It’s definitely indulgent with so much coconut milk, but that’s what makes it so good.

    So gorgeous! I can’t believe you can get coconut whipped cream to do that. I’ve tried it many times, and it just never holds together that way. . . I end up with a sloppy mess! Love the cup, too. :)

      I’ve found some brands are better than others, and I usually whip it and then refrigerate it for an hour or more to allow it to firm up. I’ve had best results with Native Forest and Aroy-D brands.
