Meet the Copycat Chick-fil-A Frosted Coffee THM S, Low Carb.
This delicious and nutritious frosted coffee is a THM S recipe, which means it’s low carb and Keto friendly! My family has been enjoying it for a while and it’s still highly requested.
It was originally posted it in May of 2018 but it is so refreshingly delicious that I’ve decided to take the time to update it now. For this one means it just means new photos, a better print functions, and a bit more info with new links but the same fantastic frosted coffee drink!
It’s one of my primary goals at Nana’s Little Kitchen to make deserts and drinks that taste good enough so you’ll never miss their sugary counterparts, and this one fits that bill better than most, in my opinion. Thanks to mine, and some close family members, coffee obsessions, I have an entire post dedicated to the Sugar-Free Coffee House Syrups.
However, there are still some coffee drinks that don’t require a syrup, and this is one of them.
It’s a close cousin to several other well loved recipes, including the Tiramisu Frozen Smoothie and Hot Tiramisu plus a Mock Iced Cinnamon Dolce, all of which are made without syrups. But it’s hard to beat the convenance of having the syrups pre-made for the Peppermint Mocha, Cafe Caramel Macchiato, and Pumpkin Spice Latte.
This coffee drink was actually born after I sampled the actual Frosted Coffee and decided that it was pretty good but I actually thought it could be as good or better in a sugar free form. It came together really easily but try it and you be the judge!
This recipe calls for low carb ice cream to make it closer to the original version. You can use an on plan, low carb ice cream in it. Halo and Carb Smart have version that will work but it’s preferred that you limit those to 1/4 cup per serving. So I suggest that you mix the 1/4 cup ice cream and 1/4 cup cottage chip to make sure it’s nice and creamy.
Alternatively you can use your favorite leftover homemade sugar free ice cream or try one of these from some of my blogging buddies:

Or try a flavored one like this:

It came together really easily but try it and you be the judge!

- 1/2 cup low carb leftover homemade vanilla
- OR 1/4 cup Carbsmart or other, low carb vanilla ice cream PLUS 1/4 cup low-fat Daisy cottage cheese as a sub for the homemade ice cream*
- 1/2 cup espresso, strong brewed coffee, or cold brew concentrate
- 1/2 tsp instant espresso or other high-quality instant coffee, totally optional
- 2 tablespoons Gentle Sweet or 1 tablespoon Pyure
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons collagen powder (optional)
- 1 cup ice or 1 1/2 cups for icy cold
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional-it just makes it a little creamier
- Put all of the ingredients in the blender and blend.
Homemade low carb ice cream is normally a lot lower glycemic than the store bought kind. If you have leftover ice cream this is a delicious way to use it. Otherwise the store bought low carb of your choice @ 1/4 cup plus 1/4 cup high quality cottage cheese will make an good sub.
