frozen mocha

Everyone loves indulging in those delicious frozen coffee drinks with the big long names, but one thing I don’t love is they put a dent in your wallet. Not only that, but they can come packed with tons of unnecessary calories. This homemade version of a frozen mocha drink is inexpensive to make, provides multiple servings, and is the perfect rich yet refreshing treat made with ingredients you probably have on hand.

Serves: 2-4IMG_0223
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
3 cups frozen coffee (I put leftover coffee from my pot in a cup in the freezer)
1 ½ cups milk
½ cup chocolate syrup
1 cup ice (optional – this is to dilute it if it is too strong)
1 tablespoon sugar (optional – depends how sweet you want it)
Whipped cream and more chocolate syrup for topping

 

 

Make it your own: Add some extra flavors like peppermint or caramel to make it even more decadent! You can usually find lots of fun flavors as extracts in the spice or baking aisle.

 

Directions:IMG_0228

  1. Run hot water on outside of of your cup of frozen coffee to help it come out easier.
  2. Combine frozen coffee, milk, chocolate syrup, ice, and sugar in blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream (check out my recipe for homemade whipped cream here) and chocolate syrup.
  5. Enjoy!

 

Tip: There’s always a little bit of coffee left in the bottom of the pot! Freeze this in a cup or container throughout the week to use in your frozen mocha. You won’t have to wait for your coffee to freeze when you’re craving this sweet treat!IMG_0293
