Frappes were once served at fine restaurants between courses as a palate cleanser, today they are considered more of a light refreshing dessert. You may wonder what the difference between a smoothie and a frappe is, it’s a little hard to explain but when you taste one you know the difference! A frappe is frothy and light, delicate almost… and a frappe generally would not contain greens or be served as breakfast or meal replacement like a smoothie, because they are light and sweet .

This refreshing Mango Watermelon Frappe is made with frozen fruit, whole fat yogurt and a simple syrup, it makes the perfect dessert for warm summer nights.

I top this frappe with my Vanilla Paste Whipped Cream, a slice of dried apricot and a mint leaf from my herb garden. You and your family are going to love this recipe!

The Recipe: Mango Watermelon Frappe

You will need: a simple syrup made in advance, watermelon cut into cubes and frozen ahead of time, my whipped cream (<—recipe) and a good quality blender. I use Blentec. If a new Blendtec isn’t in the budget you may wish to consider a Blendtec Classic Factory Recertified Blender for about half the price of new!

  1. To make simple syrup: place 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in sauce pan and bring to boil. Lower heat to simmer till liquid becomes clear (about 5-7 Minutes) allow to cool, place in mason jar and store in refrigerator.
  2. To make frappe: place all ingredients and 1 cup of the grape juice into blender and blend, reserve a half cup for later. Blend till smooth. If you need to thin out frappe, add remaining grape juice a little at a time. Top with whipped cream, a sliver of apricot and a mint leaf.
