Paleo Mocha Frappo – A Guest Post for Life As A Plate

There’s a certain coffee house who’s morning desserts never cease to tempt me. When I saw AndreAnna’s recipe for the dairy-free Almond Joy Smoothie it immediately got us thinking about how to accomplish a Mocha version. After we finally perfected a sugar-free, dairy-free version, I was happy to guest blog the recipe to AndreAnna’s awesome site, LifeAsAPlate.com while she attempts to vacation here on the east coast with family in tow.
