Iced Mocha Recipe-How to Make an Iced Mocha

 Easy Iced Mocha Recipe

A delicious iced mocha recipe for you! Try it, I’m pretty sure you’ll love it! You can also try this mocha frappuccino if you’d like a blended version.

This iced mocha recipe is not “blended”, but iced. So you do not need a blender, just whole or crushed ice! It is very quick and easy. Add whipped cream on top and you’re all set!

For the cocoa powder, I use Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate and I love it. They also have an unsweetened version. You can use Hershey’s chocolate too if you prefer or if you don’t have any cocoa on hand.

Also try adding a little vanilla extract for added flavor!

    Hi there, I’m new to brewing coffee, may I know if espresso powder is suitable for this recipe?

    I would try some but I don’t know how to make coffee

  5. This is so good! How can I take this recipe and make it a little more slushy?

  6. Danielle says:

    This was really good. I added a 1/4 tsp instant coffee grounds as my brewed coffee was not strong enough and I also used hersheys syrup as I didn’t have any cocoa, I omitted the sugar. It came out fantastic. Next shopping trip I will get original ingredients. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  7. Excellent and very simple recipe!

  15. Amazing recipe,googled after me and my wife just tasted one for the first time in McDonald’s. Wow this is exactly the same!!!! Thanks.

    Gotta say this recipe is better than Starbucks. Guess who isn’t going to Starbucks anymore! This girl!!! So glad I found this cause all my other attempts were terrible fails

  17. I have a similar recipe, only I used cold pressed coffee. My problem is that the cocoa doesn’t dissolve and tends to want to separate and settle on the bottom Suggestions?

    delicious…..also if you are on the Southbeach Diet plan, use sugar free hersheys syrup (one shot), splenda and 1% milk. So yummy and you feel like you are drinking what everyone else can have.
