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.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
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.
- Run hot water on outside of of your cup of frozen coffee to help it come out easier.
- Combine frozen coffee, milk, chocolate syrup, ice, and sugar in blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream (check out my recipe for homemade whipped cream here) and chocolate syrup.
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!
