It’s Friday, which calls for massive amounts of coffee since it’s almost a three day weekend! Actually, any day requires caffeine in my book, but especially on days like today, it’s an absolute necessity. I just started drinking coffee about seven years ago, and ever since then I’ve been hooked. I’m not addicted to it and can go a few days or even weeks without it, but that’s not fun, so I don’t do that. And while I try not to drink it every day, I find myself drinking it almost every day…that counts for a little bit of willpower, right?
My husband doesn’t drink coffee at all. He likes the smell of it, but not the taste of it. And he much prefers his morning glass of orange juice and water throughout the day.
However, when I made this Iced Mocha Cappuccino a few weeks ago, even my husband was intrigued! This drink combines a blend of rich coffee and chocolate, mixed in with creamy vanilla ice cream. It’s smooth, refreshing, and perfect for when you need a caffeine fix.
Did I make your day just a little bit better? I sure hope so, because I can’t wait to dive into this Iced Mocha Cappuccino again. I love the decadent taste so much that I’ve made it several times in the past two weeks. And I hardly ever order cappuccinos, but this homemade one is just too good to pass up.
If you have a habit of stopping at Starbucks every so often for one of their drinks, this Iced Mocha Cappuccino will make you think twice. It’s easy to make, costs less than half of what coffee shop drink would cost, and is all-around delicious. Plus, you can control exactly what goes in your drink!
This Iced Mocha Cappuccino is incredibly easy to whip up and so full of flavor! To start, you’ll want to make sure your coffee is brewed and well-chilled. Next, you’ll combine the coffee, some chocolate syrup, sweetener, and vanilla ice cream in a blender. Blend away until it reaches your desired consistency and then pour into a tall glass. And please garnish it with whipped cream. It’s just tastes better that way, trust me!
One sip and you’ll be hooked on the smooth mocha flavor and creamy texture. This Iced Mocha Cappuccino is the perfect indulgence to make your day (or night) just a little bit sweeter!
