An iced mocha is a delightful cold beverage to enjoy as an afternoon pick-me-up. Give your wallet a boost as well by making it yourself.
It’s true that a Frappucino or an iced mocha is one of my favorite indulgences, particularly in summertime. But, at 4 bucks a pop, it’s not the best use of our money. Instead, with some good coffee, sugar, cocoa, milk, and ice, I can make my own. This particular recipe is on the milkier side, but you can adjust the ratio of coffee to milk to suit your tastes. I use nonfat milk, but it will certainly be creamier if you use milk of a different percentage milkfat.
- 3/4 cup strongly brewed coffee or espresso
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 cup milk
- ice cubes for serving
- In small bowl or mug combine the hot coffee, cocoa, and sugar. Stir until cocoa and sugar are completely dissolved.
- Stir in 1 cup milk. Pour over ice in large mug or glass.
