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. And let me tell you something, we love our coffee around here at the Rowes.
Yep, coffee fanatics are in the house! And in this 100+ degree weather, we’d prefer our coffee a little cold!
We made a list of the necessary ingredients, checked to see what we had in our cupboards and/or refrigerator and made our way to to the grocery store. These days, 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.
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!
This would be a great time to put a plug in for the perfect cup of Homemade Iced Coffee. This is another delicious treat on a hot summer day!
Let’s jump right in, shall we? I think I’ve prolonged this delicious goodness long enough. Enjoy!
Coffee Mocha Shake
- Seattle's Best Coffee (preferably Level 5)
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- DaVinci Chocolate Syrup
- Hershey's Cocoa
- Spray Cool Whip
- Cinnamon, optional
Make iced coffee. I used a coffee press, using 4 scoops of coffee to 24 oz of water. Bring water to a boil, then pour it over the grinds and let it steep for 4 minutes.
Place in pitcher and allow it to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.
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.)
Once you have your shake consistency, pour into glass. Add cool whip and a sprinkle or two of cocoa and cinnamon, optional. Enjoy!
