Chocolate Mocha Iced Coffee

I miss summer.

It’s only mid-October and I’m already dreaming of the laid-back days of sunshine and cool drinks.

One of the things the kids and I love to do in the summer is to go thrift store shopping.  We’d start out in the morning hours, hit 3 of our favorite stores and then stop to get some iced coffee to refuel after our bargain shopping.

Because we’re up to our ears in school books now, there’s no time for heading out to see what treasures we can find. But we can still enjoy our afternoon iced coffee!

The kids’ faces always perk up a bit when they see me brew a pot of strong coffee and then pop it in the fridge. They know what is coming.

Chocolate Mocha Iced Coffee. Made with 5 ingredients and about the creamiest iced coffee I’ve ever had. It rivals the best of coffee shops.

How to Make Mocha Iced Coffee

Brew a pot of strong coffee. I prefer to plan ahead a little bit so that I can refrigerate the coffee for at least an hour or two before making the mocha iced coffee. For this mocha iced coffee, I used the Chocolate Glazed Donut Coffee. Because…. Chocolate + Donuts + Coffee. Need I say  more? I found mine at Meijer, and you can find this coffee at your local grocery store. When you buy your Dunkin’ Donuts® Bakery Series® Chocolate Glazed Donut, do yourself a favor. Open it up and take a deep inhale at the glorious aroma of this coffee. We may have passed the bag around so all of us could enjoy the moment.

There’s not many other scents that calm my mind than a whiff of coffee.

Ahhh….relax.

Blended Iced Coffee

When you’re ready to blend your drink,  pour 2 cups of chilled strong coffee, 1 cup of milk (at least 2%), and ⅓ cup of chocolate syrup into the blender. Then add a pint of mocha chocolate chip ice cream. If you can’t find mocha chocolate chip, look for an ice cream that has a chocolate mocha or coffee flavor. This only enhances the chocolate glazed donut flavor of the coffee!

Lastly, add about 3 cups of ice. You can add a little more or less if you’d like. My kids find that they like it best with 3 cups of ice. Just enough to keep the mocha iced coffee refreshing without watering it down too much.

Turn on the blender allow that brilliant machine to crush all of the ice and smooth out the ice cream. I let my blender run for about 30-45 seconds, until I couldn’t hear the ice being crushed anymore.

Immediately pour the drink into 4 cups. This recipe makes about 4 16-ounce glasses of mocha iced coffee. If you don’t need that much you can easily make half of the recipe.

The result?

The ice cream keeps the iced coffee at tip-top creaminess. If you get a chocolate chip mocha-flavored ice cream (which I highly recommend) you’ll get tiny chocolate shavings while you drink your iced coffee. Trust me. That’s not a bad thing.

Summer?

I suddenly don’t miss you quite as much.

My husband and I are still enjoying our late day chocolate flavored frozen coffee into November. Here’s a tip- cold brew your coffee and it will always be cold and strong enough to hold the flavor with all the ice. It’s super easy. I scoop 3/4 cup ground coffee into a 16 oz glass jar and fill it with cold water. I gently shake it and refrigerate it for 12 to 24 hours. When it’s ready and your ready for a tasty coffee treat, strain the grounds out of the coffee, rinse out the jar and pour the strained coffee… Read more »
