All of my friends rave about these frosty drinks. I pour my leftover coffee in ice cube trays and keep them on hand all the time. You can make fun squiggly designs on insides of glasses with chocolate syrup, before pouring mochas. Top with whipped cream.

I wish there was an option for 6 stars! This is great. Ok here's what i found: 1 1/2 cups coffee = 6 ice cubes. I only made a half recipe so that was 3 ice cubes (frozen coffee cubes), 1 cup milk - and i used 2T chocolate and 2T caramel syrup plus 2T sugar. It was still very sweet so next time I'll omit the sugar and just add a little at a time to taste. It is a little runny for my taste so I added 4 regular ice cubes to help make it more frosty. This recipe is very easy and can easily be adapted to make all the specialty flavors for frozen coffees (peppermint, oreo, etc.) - just watch the sweetness. I also double-brewed my coffee (made it regular then ran the brewed coffee thru the machine again like it was water with the same grounds as the first time) to make it more intese and used decalf (all I had on hand). YUMMY! Read More

These were okay but nothing special and too much work what with the blender for something that wasn't all that great. Won't make again. Read More

Great recipe! Wendy is absolutely correct to tell us to use ice cubes made of leftover coffee (they don't dilute the flavor the way regular ice would). I give it 4 stars only because I think you should sweeten this (and all iced coffee drinks) with simple syrup instead of sugar. Sugar doesn't dissolve completely and leaves granules. Simple syrup is simply 1 part water and 1 part sugar. Boil together till sugar dissolves, cool. You can store this in your refrigerator for weeks. (I work for a coffee company. ;-) Read More

Very good. Next time I'll try it with whipped cream on top and putting chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass. The coffee ice cubes was a stroke of genius. EDITED REVIEW: Now that I've adapted a healthier lifestyle and am eating lighter I cut the milk back a bit and use either two tablespoons french vanilla flavored sugar free creamer or two tablespoons fat free evaporated milk my homemade sugar free chocolate syrup and if it's not sweet enough a couple packets Truvia sweetener. It's every bit as good as the full fat version. Read More

Awesome icy treat! Perfect for when you want to have the "coffeehouse experience" right in your own house. I just used cold coffee and crushed iced in my blender as I didn't want to take the time to freeze the cubes. I also used skim milk. This made more than enough for me and my husband to share. It was so good topped off with a whipped cream and little more chocolate syrup! Read More

Like other reviewers said this really does resemble a mocha frappachino at Starbucks which happens to be my favorite!! Very good - I have added caramel to mine as well giving it a slightly different taste. Will now be saving my 5.00 at Starbucks by making my own for pennies! Thanks! Read More

What else can I say but WOW?!?! The consistancy is perfect! I added a half teaspoon of cinnamon to the recipe and poured it into some pretty glasses. My friends and family like it coffee shoppe style with whip cream a sprinkle of cinnamon a bit of chocolate syrup and some chocolate sprinkles on top. Thanks for sharing this great recipe! Read More

I LOVE IT!!!! It was so incredibly good. It actually tastes alot like the coffee coolatas from Dunkin Donuts. I made it at work tonight for my boss and coworker they absolutlely LOVED it. My boss actually came looking for more. My only advice is if you're going to make this make sure you make enough! Read More

Ok I didn't read the recipe all the way through and I neglected to freeze the coffee into cubes (what kind of cook am I? I know I know) and didn't realize until too late. Oops. So I just blended all the ingredients (my coffee was cold) with a hand blender and poured over crushed ice. Yum. Next time I make these I'll do it the right way but it's fine just the way I did it today. Very very yummy with just the right amount of sweetness. Perfect for when you want your coffee but it's hot and muggy outside. Read More

This was very tasty! It's really sweet which may be a problem for some but was perfect for me. I used double-strong brewed coffee for my ice cubes. I scaled the recipe to serve half as much it turned out very well. This tasted something like a Starbucks Mocha Frappucino--I'd definitely make it again! Read More
