Easy Iced Mocha
Prep time
Total time
Yield: Serves 2
  • 2 espresso shots
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Ice cubes
  • Milk
  • Whipped cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings, ice cream (optional)
  1. Prepare your espresso. Whisk cocoa powder and sugar in a measuring cup.
  2. Pour the hot espresso into the measuring cup and whisk to dissolve the cocoa powder and sugar. You will get about 200ml of mocha mixture. If you are making in advance, chill the mocha mixture in the refrigerator until serving time.
  3. Divide the mocha mixture between 2 300ml cups.
  4. Add in ice cubes until the cups are ¾ full then pour in the milk. Top with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings and/or ice cream if desired and serve immediately.
Naggy Notes
- Make sure the espresso is hot so that the cocoa powder and sugar can dissolve.

- If replacing espresso with brewed coffee or instant coffee powder, make 200ml of extra strong coffee by increasing the amount of coffee powder you'll normally use by 50% or 100%.

- If the mocha is not sweet enough, make a simple syrup to sweeten the drink: dissolve 2 parts sugar to 1 part hot water (e.g. ½ cup sugar to ¼ cup water). Let cool and serve on the side.
