Make a magical Mochaccino

Posted on January 3, 2017

If you lust after those frothy frozen coffee drinks at your local coffee shop, then this mochaccino recipe is for you. This easy homemade version uses low-fat milk, cocoa powder, coffee and just a little bit of maple syrup, so it has a fraction of the calories of a traditional version.  Coffee ice cubes, made by freezing coffee in an ice cube tray, make this drink frosty and give it a big, strong coffee flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup double-strength brewed coffee or espresso
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2-3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ⅛ tea spoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 ice cubes, if needed

Equipment:

Ice cube tray

Preparation

  1. Freeze coffee in an ice cube tray until firm, at least 4 hours or overnight. Combine the frozen coffee cubes, milk, cocoa, maple syrup to taste and vanilla in a blender. Pulse until smooth, adding plain ice cubes if you want it thicker or a little water if you want it thinner.
  2. Ready in 4 hours and 10 minutes
  3. Divide between 2 glasses, dust with a little cocoa powder, if desired, and serve immediately.
  4. This recipe makes 1 cup.
