DIY: Iced Mocha Coffee

Hello readers!


About a month ago I decided to save money on my almost daily trip to Starbucks and went ahead and invested in an espresso machine. I also bought Starbucks espresso beans and different flavored syrups.


Today happens to be a warm day here in Dallas, so what better than start making iced coffee. I recently went to Walmart and bought their brand of mason jars, which was only $7 instead of the “real” brand which would have set me back about $20. They are the same both in size and quality only difference is you do not get the name on the glass. I really don’t care, but if you do, go buy the real ones, more power to you.


Anyways, I made 2 shots of espresso (or if you don’t happen to own an espresso machine, brew really dark coffee of your choice, just double the strength of a cup of java.) then I packed the mason jar with ice then poured the coffee, pumped 2 shots of Torani Chocolate Syrup (you can use Hershey Chocolate Syrup, it will taste the same) and topped it off with skim milk (or whatever milk is of your choice.)




And there you have it, my iced mocha. Also, blogger and Food Network Chef The Pioneer Woman makes a wonderful version as well. Check it out here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/06/perfect-iced-coffee/


Until next time,
