I use regular milk in this recipe. I like to throw the ingredients for this into a small Ball jar, slap a lid on it and shake until the ingredients are well combined. My kids especially like this (though I use decaf for them). This makes a good blended drink, too. Read More

This is a keeper! I am not a fan of sweet coffee drinks so I modified it slightly. I used my own cocoa mix which is from the can of cocoa but with half the sugar they suggest and my own syrup from a recipe here on AR. I reduce the sugar in that also. The almond milk gives it a richness I love. Just what I need - more caffeine! Thanks Linda I may make this by the gallon LOL. Read More

DEEEEEE licious! I used 1% milk and 25 calorie hot cocoa mix and a TBS regular chocolate syrup. I also used hot coffee. Poured a little hot coffee into the cup and dissolved the hot cocoa mix then added the rest of the ingredients and lots of ice...blended it up in my magic bullet and got a wonderful afternoon treat for very few calories. Thanks LindaT!! Read More

10 stars!! I Always have leftover coffee from breakfast! I save SO MUCH by making my own Frappuccino's and iced coffees!! I happen to have Abuelita's Mexican style coco mix in the pantry. I came home from work after cleaning up the cafeteria kitchen @ school Hot n Thirsty. I saw this posted on FB and I was heading toward the MY kitchen! This was jut the PERFECT drink to get me through! The one I have pictured went to my DD:) She hurt her foot over the weekend and needed a treat too! By the way I made this in the blender with ice. Thank You Linda! Naturally I will keep coming back for MORE!! LOL Read More

I have been making a recipe that was blended and a little different than this. I am really glad I tried this one! I made this with 2% milk regular chocolate syrup and Starbucks peppermint hot chocolate because those are the ingredients that I had on hand (I wouldn't recommend buying Starbucks hot chocolate for this because it is expensive and I only used it because it was a gift and I haven't been drinking it). I also didn't have cold coffee on hand so I used the frozen coffee that I kept in ice trays for my other recipe and blended everything together in my magic bullet it was great! I'll be making this from now on. Also I think that it tastes better if you brew fresh coffee to melt the hot chocolate in rather than just heating up old coffee but make sure that you get the hot chocolate dissolved either way because if you don't it will leave random dry chocolate particles in your coffee.
