Tips for Perfect Iced Coffee

  • Use High-Quality Coffee: I recommend using a strong, high-quality coffee for your mocha to give it the best flavor.
  • Freeze Coffee Ahead of Time: If you don’t want your ice cubes to melt and water down your mocha, freeze some coffee in an ice tray ahead of time and use those instead!
  • Adjust to Taste: You know your taste buds best, so adjust this recipe accordingly. And if you want to add even more deliciousness to this drink, top it with whipped cream and extra chocolate sauce.

Can I Make this Into a Frappuccino?

You can totally turn your mocha into a frap! If you want it to feel more like a frappuccino, blend an extra 1/2 cup of ice into the drink. You may also want to add more sugar, as the extra ice will take away some sweetness.
