How to Make it

Get a quick overview of the iced mocha recipe below, but keep scrolling for visual guides and step-by-step directions.

Gather your ingredients to get started- ½ cup of milk (whole is preferable), ½ cup strong brewed cold coffee or cold brew concentrate, a couple of squirts of chocolate syrup (depending on how sweet you like it!), and a Mason jar filled with ice. Then if desired, top it off with a dollop of whipped cream for the perfect finish!

Pour your chocolate sauce into an empty mason jar.

Begin by adding the ice, followed by equal parts of coffee and milk. To maintain a robust flavor, we recommend undiluted cold brew concentrate. However, if you prefer something more subtle in taste, simply add a splash of water to dilute your coffee mixture.

Securely fasten the lid, then vigorously shake it until the chocolate sauce has blended in!

Make it the perfect finish with a cloud of whipped cream and chocolate drizzle, then savor every last bite!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How long will my iced mocha keep in the fridge?

A. Your homemade mocha should stay fresh and delicious for up to 24 hours! To ensure maximum flavor and the best results, it's recommended to serve it immediately after making it.

What is the best milk type for an iced mocha?

A: Whole milk produces a creamier texture and richer taste compared to its skimmed counterpart. However, almond or coconut milk are excellent alternatives if you prefer something lighter or are lactose-intolerant.

Is it necessary to use a Mason jar when making an iced mocha?

A: Absolutely not! Any large container with a secure lid will work perfectly. If you're someone who likes to be extra organized, a Mason jar can be helpful for that purpose.

Can I make this iced mocha recipe without chocolate syrup?

A: Absolutely, yes! To get a similar creamy consistency, add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder or unsweetened cocoa nibs and stir until combined. This way, you can have that delightful hint of chocolate without the additional sugar syrups or sweeteners.
