Mocha Coconut Bread

Mocha Coconut Bread

My local Starbucks has a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino on the menu as one of their summer blended drinks. The frappuccino is a combination of coffee, chocolate and coconut and – for a coconut-lover like me – it is a very good combination. I don’t want an icy frozen coffee drink every day, however, so I played around with these flavors myself to create a Mocha ... Read More »
