Coffee Mocha Shake Goodness

Let me tell you! We {love} our coffee around here at the Rowes. And in this 100+ degree weather, we’d prefer our coffee a little cold! So, this past weekend the hubs and I decided to try our hands at a Coffee Mocha Shake…. and with the right ingredients, I think we found perfection.

We made our list of the necessary ingredients, checked to see what we had in our cupboards and/or refrigerator and made our way to Walmart.  The coffee options are unlimited.  Have you ever noticed that?  It’s a rainbow of colors and so many different flavors and names to choose from!  I tend to be a Starbucks girl, but the hubs thinks that can be a little too robust at times.

Decisions.  Decisions!

So, we decided on Seattle’s Best Coffee in the Level 5, which is Dark and Intense.
I like my coffee strong, but this will also be perfect for an iced coffee drink!

Yummy Coffe Mocha Shake

Ingredients:
Seattle’s Best Coffee (preferably Level 5)
Vanilla Ice Cream
DaVinci Chocolate Syrup
Hershey’s Cocoa
Spray Cool Whip

Let’s grab our ingredients and get this yumm-iness in a glass ASAP {giggle}.

First you’ll want to make your iced coffee.  I {love} making my iced coffee in our coffee press.  I use 4 scoops of coffee to 24 oz of water. I bring my water to a boil, then pour it over the grinds and let it steep for 4 minutes.   It’s strong enough that you can pour over ice and serve.  However, for this drink, you’ll want to be sure that your coffee is chilled, so make it in advance and let it chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Once you have your iced coffee ready to go, you’re going to place 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream, 4-5 oz. of iced coffee and 1/2 oz of the chocolate syrup  into your blender and blend.  Please note this chocolate syrup is a syrup intended for coffee drinks, milk shakes, smoothies, etc.  It’s not hershey’s chocolate syrup.  Once you have your shake consistency, pour into glass, add cool whip and a sprinkle or two of cocoa.  Oh my glorious goodness!

Now that we’ve made this yummy coffee drink, I’m thinking about entering the #RedCupShowdown.  Do you remember Jeff Mauro? He was the Sandwich King from the Food Network.  Neat-o guy!  Anywho,  he’s hosting the Red Cup Showdown at select state fairs this summer where you can win $10,000 by submitting your coffee recipe! If you’re unable to attend one of the state fairs you can submit your recipe on facebook too. All you have to do is like their  facebook page, scroll down and click on Submit Your Recipe.  You’ll then be prompted to this screen.

    Wow! This looks wonderful. My mother invited us to a coffee shop this morning and I was overwhelmed by all the great selections. My hubs ordered something similar to this, but also included mint syrup. Mmm. Thanks so much for letting us know about the competition. Sounds like fun! Just won a red ribbon at the county fair yesterday for a spice cake.

    Oooooh I haven’t gotten out my French Press since winter, but this makes me want to get it out…..as soon as I go to the store for ice cream!

    Yum! This looks delicious. I’ll have to find some alternative ingredients so I can make it here in Australia :)

    I have tried to like cold or iced coffee multiple times over the years, and just could never get into it. the summer of 2012 may do it to me – your recipe looks delicious. It was 107 today (as you well know). Maybe today is the day that I become an iced coffee lover…..

    I make a similar iced coffee/mocha, but I don’t put ice cream in it. I will try it though… it must be WONDERFUL with ice cream!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!
