Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour milk into a large microwave-safe container; heat in microwave until warmed, 1 to 2 minutes.

    Advertisement
  • Stir sweetener and cocoa powder into the warmed milk to dissolve completely.

  • Froth the milk according to your espresso machine's directions.

  • Stir espresso into the frothed milk mixture.

Cook's Note:

By using cocoa powder and Splenda(R), I lower the sugar content without using the sugar alcohol you might find in a coffee shop. I actually prefer these mochas to those of the national chains.

A nice mocha without the guilt. I made this on the stove instead of the microwave. Thank you aroverman for your recipe. Read More

I frothed my warm milk with an immersion blender placed in my Ninja Coffee Bar and brewed my coffee over my frothed milk for this layered drink. As far as taste it was okay but not something I would make again. Read More

I liked this. It had just the right coffee cocoa and sweet taste. I'm not a big fan of the Splenda aftertaste but if you're used to that you'd have no problem. I made this on the stove since I don't have an espresso machine. Usually I whisk the milk until it's nice and frothy but with the added cocoa it didn't froth very well. It still tasted good though.
