Homemade Cafe Mocha Coffee Drink
2 cups ice cubes
1/2 cup very strong, freshly brewed coffee
1/4 cup cream or half and half
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons chocolate drink mix of choice
1 teaspoon vanilla
Put all ingredients into a blender and process until combined and mixture is thick and creamy. Top with whipped cream and make sure you serve with a colorful straw to make it special. Makes about two largish servings or three smaller ones.
Want chocolate coffee mint? You can either add a few drops of peppermint extract or throw in a hard mint candy along with the rest of the ingredients.
A bit of fresh orange zest included at the mixing is a nice change.
Always, always, various kinds of sprinkles to decorate the whipped cream topping never go amiss!
