I used one packet of Starbucks VIA coffee Truvia instead of sugar and homemade sugar free chocolate syrup. I threw everything in a pint Ball jar and shook until all the ingredients were combined and the coffee was dissolved. This is good but for me I think I'd omit the cocoa powder next time. Read More

I'm really trying to like this recipe because it has everything in it that I love...coffee AND chocolate. The submitter told us to play with the ingredients to make them to our preference so I did. I made it per the recipe the first time subbing in Splenda and skim milk and found it too weak in flavor and watery. The skim milk could have been the reason for the thin watery taste. The next time I used a mixture of fat free half and half and skim milk added instant espresso powder doubled the cocoa powder and used only 4 ice cubes. It was stronger in flavor but still watered down tasting...but better. For my taste I believe the ice cubes dilute the milk too much so a full fat milk is definitely needed. I'll keep playing with this recipe though because I think it has potential. Read More

I liked this. I did follow the recipe exactly. My only complaint is that it is not real sweet. It kind of seems like the chocolate syrup should have been added directly to the drink while it was blended. The second time I did do that and I liked it better. The texture which is both slightly creamy and icy is very good on a warm day. TY Read More

Yummy especially on a hot day. I used 2 tsp of instant coffee 5 ice cubes Hershey's special dark cocoa powder and drizzles the chocolate syrup in with the other ingredients to be blended in. Very tasty thanks for the recipe:) Read More

Too bitter for my taste. Next time I would cut the cocoa powder in half and add the chocolate syrup to the blender. Read More

This was very good but my blender is terrible so the last couple servings had big chunks of ice in them... I multiplied the recipe by four for my family drank it up! Delish! Read More

It was okay.. If you want something sweet this is definitely it. If you need to substitute for the instant coffee use one cup of fresh brewed. Read More

This was pretty good. I had a little bit of chocolate ice cream left in the freezer so I added that to the mix as well. Like another reviewer said it was a bit watery but the ice cream fixed that right up. Read More
