It's iced-coffee time again!

It's iced-coffee time again!

(Original thread title: Wide awake thanks to new iced coffee recipe!)

OK, so I tried a new iced coffee recipe tonight.... loved it.... drank three glasses of it :loop: (DH didn't like it, and of course I didn't want to waste it ).... and now it's 12:45am and I'm wide awake and wired :yikes: and the baby is actually asleep. LOL!!

If anyone else wants to be awake with me, try this:

ICED MOCHAS
1 to 1.5 cups coffee... pour into an ice cube tray and freeze
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate syrup

Combine that all in a blender and enjoy! :thumb:
(I used skim milk and instant coffee, BTW, with delicious results.)


While I wish I had been smarter about when/how much to consume, it is really good- and much cheaper than the $3 per cup version I enjoy at Border's!

:yoyo:

oh oh..this one is right up my alley. I'm still awake too. ugh
My entire house is asleep and here I am. LOL
I looove coffee. My coffeemaker died the other day and I went an entire day without coffee and it was not pretty. Thankfully, Gabe got a new one.
I will definitely be trying this. I am normally not a fan of cold coffee, but your recipe is more "mocha-y" (nice word) LOL
Plus, I have been really into blended smoothie type drinks lately. YUMMY.

thanks. :)

Funny, I'm wide awake has well!! I don't like coffee of any kind though, so I won't be making it. In fact, dh doesn't drink coffee here either.

:bump:

Just bumping this up as the warm weather always makes me crave iced coffee.... in fact, I've been to Tim Horton's drive-thru twice in the last week for their iced coffee (at $3 a piece!), so I figured it was time to pull out this recipe and start making my own again!

I'm sharing this recipe on my blog today and wanted to double-check it here, so I figured I may as well go ahead and bump it up, too. :)

Thanks for bumping it. I am going to have some this afternoon (using rice milk since I can't drink regular milk) :)

How did it taste with the rice milk? I was thinking about trying it myself. It sounds so yummy. Of course I'd better stick to one glass for the baby's sake, lol. Wouldn't want the little one up all night, hehe.

I've never had this but it sound delicious. It'd have to be instant coffee with me since I don't own a coffee maker.

Just wondering....I will prob substitue splenda for the sugar and go w/o the chocolate *hangs head in shame* ok maybe a dash of the syrup :tay: but how many ice cubes do you need to use with the 2 cups of skim milk?
