Ingredients

(Based on one serving)

  • ¾ Cup of Extra Strong Coffee (You won’t want to use a mild blend for this recipe as it will take away from the coffee flavor of the drink)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Sugar (You can also use a sugar substitute such as Stevia)
  • 1 Cup of Milk (Consider using low-fat milk as it will still provide a creamy texture but without the added calories)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Chocolate Syrup (You can also use chocolate powdered drink mix. This step is open to interpretation, if you prefer caramel you can substitute the chocolate for caramel.)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Whipped Cream (To create a delicious topping)

Directions

  1. Brew your ¾ cup of extra strong coffee
  2. Chill the coffee in the fridge or freezer before proceeding with the remainder of the drink
  3. Add chilled coffee to a blender
  4. Add 6-7 ice cubes to the blender
  5. Add milk and sugar to the mix and start to blend the ingredients. You will want to blend until the ice has been crushed and the drink has a smooth yet icy consistency.
  6. Add chocolate or caramel syrup
  7. Top with whipped cream
  8. Serve and enjoy
