I wish there was an option for 6 stars! This is great. Ok here's what i found: 1 1/2 cups coffee = 6 ice cubes. I only made a half recipe so that was 3 ice cubes (frozen coffee cubes), 1 cup milk - and i used 2T chocolate and 2T caramel syrup plus 2T sugar. It was still very sweet so next time I'll omit the sugar and just add a little at a time to taste. It is a little runny for my taste so I added 4 regular ice cubes to help make it more frosty. This recipe is very easy and can easily be adapted to make all the specialty flavors for frozen coffees (peppermint, oreo, etc.) - just watch the sweetness. I also double-brewed my coffee (made it regular then ran the brewed coffee thru the machine again like it was water with the same grounds as the first time) to make it more intese and used decalf (all I had on hand). YUMMY!-25 Aug 2003

Great recipe! Wendy is absolutely correct to tell us to use ice cubes made of leftover coffee (they don't dilute the flavor the way regular ice would). I give it 4 stars only because I think you should sweeten this (and all iced coffee drinks) with simple syrup instead of sugar. Sugar doesn't dissolve completely and leaves granules. Simple syrup is simply 1 part water and 1 part sugar. Boil together till sugar dissolves, cool. You can store this in your refrigerator for weeks. (I work for a coffee company. ;-)-23 Aug 2003

Very good. Next time, I'll try it with whippedcream on top and putting chocolatesyrup on the inside of the glass. The coffee ice cubes was a stroke of genius. EDITED REVIEW: Now that I've adapted a healthier lifestyle and am eating lighter, I cut the milk back a bit and use either two tablespoons french vanilla flavored sugar free creamer or two tablespoons fat free evaporated milk, my homemade sugar free chocolate syrup and if it's not sweet enough, a couple packets Truvia sweetener. It's every bit as good as the full fat version.-10 Jun 2008

Super Simple Iced Mocha

Serve in a glass cup with milk and ice and watch the mocha swirls as you pour from the cocktail shaker.

To make this drink decadent, top it off with whipped cream by whisking together 1/4 cup heavy cream and 2 teaspoons sugar (for 1 serving) then drizzle on some chocolate syrup. A handheld milk frother is the perfect tool to make the whipped cream.

What’s in This Blended Iced Mocha?

The essence of a blended mocha iced coffee is two things: coffee and chocolate flavor. It’s getting the ratios right that makes or breaks a good mocha.

Because I use Almond Breeze® Almondmilk Chocolate as the base of this recipe, I’ve killed two birds with one stone by combining the creamy factor of almond milk with the chocolate flavoring in one package. It’s lighter in calories and more economical, and I’m perfectly okay with that.

In addition to the chocolate almondmilk, you’ll also need some strong brewed coffee and your sweetener of choice (keep reading for my tips on how to sweeten your mocha frappe).

Iced Mocha Recipe


1/2 cup coffee (of your choice)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup (such as Hershey's)


Mix coffee, almond milk, and syrup in jar. Store, covered, in fridge until ready to drink. Add lots of ice cubes and enjoy!

I agree with you! I also think the not registering we are full signals has been missed in this debate. I do have a 44 ounce cup, I fill with ice tea or water with lemon. I always bring it with me when we go somewhere. In my case might not be the only one drinking it (three kids with me).

Sounds yummy! Is it sweet enough?

When I stopped drinking pop, I noticed a huge difference in my mood and weight. I can not stand pop anymore, and I used to drink 4 to 5 glasses a day no problem, it is a very dangerous habit (I think). The iced coffee idea is great! I am a frequent flyer at starbucks, however I am typically pretty lame when I go, my usual drink is a unsweetented iced coffee with non fat milk. I like to buy their coffee vias and make my own iced coffee with almond milk to. I have to try this mason jar idea!

I used to do this. Iɽ steal my kids' chocolate syrup all the time. But I think Hershey's may have HFCS. Nestlé doesn't, I think.

Awesome use of the word veranda, my deeeah.

I make homemade coffee drinks each morning, saving me the coffee house prices. I brew coffee each weekend and fill a pitcher. Then I pour some of the coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze. Each morning, I use my single serve blender and fill it 3/4 way with cold coffee. I add a few coffee ice cubes, a scoop of my favorite mocha flavored protein and a bit of coffee creamer of my choice. (My favorite is "York peppermint patty") Blend away and soon I have a cold coffeehouse type drink without the high price. Plus, I get an added bonus of some extra protein in the morning.

I do make iced coffee this way but I never thought to make a batch and put it in mason jars. AWESOME idea!

My go-to iced coffee in the morning is 1-1.5 frozen bananas,

1 cup cold coffee, and 2 Tbsp cocoa powder, all blended together. The sweetness comes from the bananas and the cocoa powder provides delicious antioxidants!

Almond milk must be an acquired taste - at least in coffee! I used it last week when I ran out of milk. not my favorite. But, I'm sure this would work fine with black coffee, then just add your milk & sweetener as you run out the door.

Great idea except for the Hershey Chocolate Syrup. First ingredient on it? High fructose corn syrup. Second? Cron syrup, again. Fourth, sugar. View on youtube about the dangers of these sweeteners: SUGAR: THE BITTER TRUTH and in the series THE SKINNY ON OBESITY. Besides, you read in the archives of NYT the articles about sugar written by Gary Taubes.

Actually, the law excludes convenience stores such as 7-Eleven, which I think, is crap.

I gave up drinking sweetened drinks of any kind when I had gestational diabetes and never picked them back up after my twins were born. Type 2 diabetes is rampant and liquid sugar (of any sort) is one of the big culprits there is an enormous public health cost given the number of people on medicaid who end up at the hospital with end stage renal failure which is how diabetes kills. I favor the restriction on drink sizes, and I'll have the iced coffee without the Hershey syrup, love the mason jar idea.

I like the banana,cocoa coffee idea. Iɽ like to try that with some vanilla Greek yogurt slightly frozen and blended into a smoothie.

Love it! I do the same thing, but sometimes I freeze the coffee and throw it all in a blender than it's like a frappe! I love ice coffee and with the prices of Starbucks, it's great and so easy to make at home. Wonderful post!!

Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers on June 7, 2012

I also heard that convenience stores are excluded from the ban. Also, diet sodas are okay to buy at the bigger sizes (I think). However, given all the new evidence that diet soda is also bad for you, maybe it should just be a size ban for all drinks. And maybe there should be a price ban on the cost of a bottle of water! I know going into a convenience store to buy a drink and seeing that a bottle of water is almost as much as any other drink, Iɽ buy the other drink. Make water cheaper and maybe more people would chose it.

Oh yeah. I used to make pitchers of strong coffee in the summer and keep them in the fridge. Then when Iɽ get up in the morning, Iɽ make an iced coffee for the drive to work. I don't drink as much coffee anymore, so I haven't done this in a while. I gave up drinking soda on a regular basis a long, long time ago. Now I just use it to dilute my rum (which isn't that often either - I mean the drinking rum part, not the diluting it part.)

Ooh, you should get a Cuppow - I just read about it, it's a plastic lid (made in the USA and BPA free and all that) that you put on a mason jar to make it easier to drink out of.

( - and I have nothing to do with the company at all, I just think it's cool)

Also, I'm totally spoiled now - I won't drink hot-brewed coffee poured over ice anymore, it has to be cold-brewed coffee. It's really easy to make, it just requires a bit of pre-planning. (OK, OK, so if I forgot to make it, I'll brew a quick hot cup. but it's not the same. ) )

I have been a type 1 diabetic for 47 years. Growing up it was a challenge for my mom to keep the kids happy in a sugar- free world! (no carb counting, etc. back then) She would freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays with a speck of sweetener and a speck of carob powder. We would drop them in our milk at dinner time and thought it was a real treat. I drink iced coffee drinks now, always with skim milk and a bottle of sugar free chocolate syrup that I keep at my favorite coffee shop.

This is the best idea I have ever heard. I'm a coffee sipper and by the time I'm finished with the cup it's cold. Great idea. Will make some this weekend. YUM. And 2 points less than the cappucino I drink- even better.

sue Lipcaman on June 7, 2012

@Kelly - I think it is sweet enough - the chocolate syrup adds about 30 calories of sugar (10 grams or so). The idea here is to try to make a smaller portion of iced coffee so you don't buy the really sugary ones. Thanks for your question!

The trick to this Iced Caramel Machiatto recipe is making the rich dulce de leche caramel syrup and layering the espresso and milk it’s way easier than you think too!

Start with an empty cup full of ice, then add a couple tablespoons of the syrup. Brew your espresso, and pour it very delicately over the milk of your choice – I usually go with 2% but whole milk makes this drink extra creamy and over the top.

If you don’t have dulce de leche at home (you can usually find it with the jams or in the ice cream isle of your local grocery store), simply boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for 3 hours in a large pot of gently boiling water.

Making the Iced Vanilla Latte

Vanilla lattes are so easy to make and you don’t need to splurge on an expensive vanilla bean to get good flavour with this syrup. Like the rest of the syrups here, the formula is pretty straightforward. Make a plain simple syrup by mixing boiling water and sugar together, then add in your flavouring of choice.

For this vanilla latte, I used plain old artificial vanilla extract but you could use the more expensive pure extract or opt for the vanilla bean if you can find them. But really, the vanilla latte is the easiest of all to make. Like the machiatto, start with an empty cup full of ice. Brew two espresso shots and pour them over the ice, then stir in 1 cup of milk and add vanilla syrup to your taste. Yum!

Making the Iced Mocha

This chocolate iced mocha is made very similarly to the vanilla latte, and you probably already have the main ingredient at home: cocoa powder! Make the simple syrup from the Vanilla recipe above, mix in a tablespoon of cocoa, and you’re good to go. Start with an empty cup full of ice, pour your espresso shots overtop, mix in some milk and some chocolate syrup. Super easy!

If you really want to take this iced mocha over the top, you could also use chocolate milk, or even add in a little mint extract to make it an iced peppermint mocha. Amazing combo right?! There are so many ways to get creative with iced coffee!

Will you be trying any of these iced coffee recipes? Which flavour syrup is your favourite?

Meal prep tools for iced coffee

  • Pick up some coffee beans or pre-ground coffee such as Lavazza
  • You may need a coffee grinder if you're using fresh whole beans
  • Check out the Philips 3100 coffee machine on Amazon – it's a great little coffee maker to use at home and it brews espresso shots too
  • And if you're feeling really lazy and just want your coffee already, these iced coffee syrups are an AWESOME way to jazz up your summer drinks!

Indgredients for Iced Mocha

The ingredient list couldn’t get easier for this iced mocha recipe. You’ll need:

There are a few options for the coffee. You can brew a pot or a cup using a single serve machine . This can be done the night before so you have it refrigerated and ready to go in the morning.

Or if you’re brewing and using right away, brew it a little stronger than you normally would and add extra ice to your glass. When you pour the hot coffee over the ice it will get watered down a bit as the hot coffee melts the extra ice.

Or you can buy premade black iced coffee or cold brew. My favorite cold brew that I always have on hand is Stok . This isn’t sponsored, I just love it and drink it daily.

Use whatever milk you prefer and what you would order at a coffee shop. We always have 2% on hand so that’s what I used.

Iced Mexican Mocha Coffee

So this recipe is actually for hot or iced mexican mocha. If your house is anything like ours, then you have at least one who only drinks hot coffee and another who really likes it iced. It’s a crazy life – somehow we make it work!

Anyway, this recipe pulls on the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate – cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. It doesn’t take much of any of these spices to add a warm flavor to your coffee!

I used nonfat milk in this recipe because I always have it on hand. Obviously a reduced fat or whole milk would be super delicious.

Or if you use almond or coconut milk or the very popular (and rather tasty) oat milk… Well, my mouth is starting to water thinking how delicious that would be.

You can also use whatever kind of brewed coffee (or even espresso) you have on hand. I love that I can make this as a treat on the weekends. I can just as easily make it for my morning coffee and start my weekdays off on a tasty foot!

Homemade Iced Capps – Tim Hortons’ Copycat Recipe

Tim Hortons&rsquo Iced Capps &ndash I dream of them all winter, and then I drink them up all summer. This icy addiction can be a little expensive, so I did some research (and experimentation), which led to the perfect recipe for homemade iced capps!

This recipe takes just a few ingredients and very little finesse! Are you ready for this?! There&rsquos no turning back. Delicious Iced Capps are headed your way!

Yes, I&rsquom going to share this scrumptious recipe here, with you, today.

Before you decide to make this delicious treat, make sure you have a fabulous blender that can handle a lot of ice cubes (I used to use my Magic Bullet, and it worked wonderfully for this recipe). However, I recently purchased an Instant Pot Ace Cooking Blender and it&rsquos even more amazing!! I simply select the crushed ice setting and 45 seconds later, I have the PERFECT Iced Capp.

I found inspiration for this recipe on Babble. I decided to make my own version of it. The changes I made are due to the fact that I do not have (nor do I like) instant coffee and I prefer the taste of brown sugar to white sugar.

Espresso Roast

How to Make Mocha Frozen Blended Coffee


Prepare 1 shot of espresso.

We recommend brewing Starbucks® Espresso Roast via an espresso machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can use a stove-top moka pot to make espresso-like coffee. To learn more, read our stove-top moka pot guide here.

You can also brew Starbucks® Espresso Roast by Nespresso® capsules for authentic café-style espresso.


Place ice, milk, chocolate sauce and espresso into the blender. Start at low speed, moving higher and blend on high for 30 seconds.
