If you have been around awhile you have come to know (and hopefully love) our Monday K-cup coffee recipes. I love fun, easy to make coffee drinks. They are a simple indulgence that can usually be made with ingredients already in your kitchen. There will be no running to the local coffee shop around here, no sir, we have Keurig’s in our kitchen that make these recipes easy peasy.
Up this week…Iced Cafe Mocha.
Do you purchase this product on a regular basis?
Is this part of your morning routine?
How many of these do you buy in a week?
If you are purchasing any of the above items on a regular basis- STOP! I can save you big bucks by teaching you how to make the exact same product at home using a few simple ingredients.
Iced Cafe Mocha is one of the most popular coffee house beverages that has recently made its way into cans or bottles sold in many stores for our convenience. It amazes me that consumers are willing to spend an absolute fortune on 12 small ounces that cost pennies to make at home. Not to mention these products are usually purchased at gas stations or drug stores, not exactly where I envision buying high quality coffee.
You will need:
1 empty 1-gallon milk jug
1 quart of chocolate milk
2 quarts of half and half
1) Pour the half and half and chocolate milk into the empty 1 gallon milk jug.
2) Add the Kcup coffee brewed on the lowest setting of your Keurig.
*At this point your ingredients should come to slightly below the shoulder of the milk jug.
3) Fill the rest of the way with Hershey’s Syrup.
4) Shake very well.
Place in the fridge to chill. You now have one gallon of Cafe Mocha to enjoy for up to one week.
Serve in a tall glass filled with ice. Add flavored syrups to create variations such as salted caramel, vanilla or bacon- the sky is the limit!
Warning: this is a decadent treat that should be enjoyed on special occasions unless you feel like buying bigger pants : )
