I received the products from the Imperial Sugar ,Caveman Coffee, Barlean's as a part of #Choctoberfest. However all opinions are mine.
My days start with coffee whereas hubby starts his with tea. Once in a while when I go to MacDonald’s I buy Mocha Frappe from there, and that too a small one. I like it but I am also thinking of the amount of sugar that goes in there and makes me crazy. I make my mind saying that you are not drinking it every day and only once in a while and that is okay. But I always wanted to make it at home. So when I got Caveman coffee I decided to make it at home. I like this recipe so decided to try Mocha Frappe at home.
Do you know that Mocha Frappe is cold coffee drink of Greek origin with the same original composition as Mocha coffee, but mixed with crushed ice? This refreshing coffee masterpiece is covered with thick milk foam, the height of which can be admired through a glass cup in which it is served. Original Greek version uses instant coffee while rest of world uses coffee espresso with sugar.
Beauty of this recipe is that it is an easy one, first make strongly brewed coffee and pour it in ice cube maker and freeze it. When you are ready to make, add the coffee ice cubes and milk and sugar (I used sugar from Imperial Sugar), blend it and serve with whipped cream and chocolate sauce or caramel sauce. I used chocolate swirl from Barlean's. My daughter liked it and even asked me to make it again. I am happy to make again as I know that it doesn’t have any high fructose corn syrup or any other calorie rich ingredients, only milk, coffee and whipped cream.
If you can make delicious drink in the comfort your kitchen and know what is in it and satisfy your coffee carving, why wait? Give it a try, and also you can make big batch ahead if you want to serve it for your guest and family.
