I'm pretty disappointed in this recipe. I wanted a coffee-flavored drink and this just tasted like blended up chocolate ice cream. Which is good but it's not what I thought it was going to be. I even added twice the amount of coffee it called for and I didn't taste any coffee at all! Good for a chocolate milkshake just not for a coffee drink. Read More

Mmm yum. I put more coffee than it called for and would probably put even more next time I make it. Not that anything was wrong with it - it is delish!! My husband used to be a Starbucks barista and he said it tastes just like Starbucks' mocha frap.;) Read More

A little too watered down for me. Not enough espresso and it wasn't very thick. Next time I make this I'll double the espresso and cut back on the milk. Maybe add just a little more ice cream. I used Turkey Hill ice cream in this recipe. Read More

I made this recipe for the RECIPE GROUP over on the buzz. After reading all the other reviews on this recipe I decided to change things up a little. I added about 1 1/2 - 2 Tbs. of coffee granules in place of the espresso and didn't use the chocolate syrup (hate that stuff!). I thought it was very good!:) thanks! Read More

Recipe group selection of 7/2/11. I used skim milk and low fat ice cream because that is what I had. To my taste the espresso gets lost in the chocolate and we all thought it was too sweet. Thanks for something new to try Latifa. Read More

I made this for Recipe Group this week and I agree with some previous reviewers. This was more like chocolate milk than a milkshake. Way too thin even though I used only three ice cubes and half the milk. I used some really strong espresso powder I had on hand but the flavor still didn t come through and I didn t have instant hot chocolate mix so I left that out. Even though this wasn t thick Hubs had no problem polishing it off. Read More
