These frozen mochas are my new obsession. I have made them a few times already. I don't know what it is about these but they are delicious. I have not yet read any of the Coffee House Mysteries but I hope to read one soon. They sound like my kind of books.
Cleo Coyle’s Chilly Cleoccino!
(Frozen Cappuccino or Mocha)
1/3 cup coffee (4 coffee ice cubes)
1/3 cup milk (low fat is fine)
2 teaspoons sugar (or more)
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder (for mocha)
Whipped cream (optional)
Step 1: Fill an ice cube tray with leftover coffee and freeze.
Step 2: Remove four coffee ice cubes (per 8-ounce serving) and place in blender.
Step 3: Add milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and (optional) cocoa for an iced mocha frappe.
Step 4: Pulse the blender to chop the coffee ice cubes into fine particles. You can create a very icy drink with small ice chips or you can run the blender full speed until the mixture is completely liquefied yet still cold and frothy.
