You need not visit your local coffee shop for a proper chocolate iced coffee. You can make yours in ten minutes with five ingredients, and that’s including the whipped cream on top.
So, here’s the deal. Iced coffee is fun and all, but it’s a tad better when you combine coffee’s roasted flavors with chocolate. The recipe below yields four iced coffees, so you can store them in the fridge and enjoy them during the day, or you can share them with your friends and family.
This recipe is special because we’re using a unique technique. We’re making coffee ice cubes, and they’ll both cool down the drink and flavor it with no unnecessary dilution.
To make the ice cubes, brew strong coffee and make sure you cool it down to room temperature before sticking it into the freezer, or you might ruin your food.
Once you have coffee ice cubes, blend them with milk, sugar and chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup. It comes without saying you can make your drink as chocolaty as you want, and the same goes for the sweetness; just adjust it to your taste.
You can always make an iced coffee drink more exciting by just adding stuff in there. Chocolate or vanilla ice cream are nice additions for a thicker drink.
Caramel sauce will stir your drink into a whole new direction, and even a few drops of vanilla extract can make a difference. There’s no right or wrong here. We all like our coffee differently.
And here’s another variation. You can enjoy this one blended or on the rocks, and they’re entirely different experiences. If you’re going for the ‘in the rocks’ version, let the coffee ice cubes melt a little; otherwise, it won’t taste like much.
Make this beauty when it’s hot outside or make an entire pitcher for an outdoor party. The more coffee ice cubes you make, the more iced coffee you’ll have.
Enjoy this easy recipe and make a habit out of having coffee ice cubes in the freezer. They’re lifesavers and super versatile!
Brew the coffee and let it cool to room temperature. You can use an ice bath.
Once cold, pour the coffee into an ice tray and freeze until solid.
In a blender, add the coffee ice cubes, milk, sugar and chocolate sauce. Blend until smooth and frothy.
Pour into four glasses and garnish with whipped cream.
