Hi Friends! This post is dedicated to all coffee lovers.
I recently came up with this recipe for Iced Mocha, it's way better and simpler than my old recipe. If you're like me, you love it and need to avoid expensive coffee shops and find a perfectly yummy alternative. No brewing is a bonus, you can not get that rich espresso flavor from a drip coffeemaker, no matter how much coffee you put in. I drink this year round, even in the dead of winter. I offer no pitiful excuses:)
Sweet Sue's Iced Mocha ~
Into a shaker combine:
2 cups cold milk ( 2% for me )
1 heaping tablespoon *instant* espresso powder (not granules)
quick squirt of Hersheys syrup
( you'll notice there's no added sugar ~ bonus )
Simply adjust the coffee amount to your liking, I like mine robusto!
In a weeks' time I drink (2) per day = (14) per week. Compare this recipe to $4.00 each at the coffee shop. Instant espresso powder is approx. $3.00 to $4.00 for a small 2 oz. jar and will yield many delicious servings. Heck, even if I go wicky~wacky berserkity bonkers and use a whole jar every week, that's still only a few bucks for many servings. The savings is significant, which means more moohla for stash!
If you can't find espresso powder in your coffee aisle, check in the Italian specialty foods section, it might be hiding there...
This can be shaken and stored in fridge for home or grab/go. Life's busy, a girl has gotta have what she wants, when she wants it, and not have to go broke or spend a lot of time getting it.
Plz let me know if you try this and what you think? Or if you have an Iced Mocha recipe to share, I'd love to try it!
