Like another poster's Milkshake recipe, I suppose you might substitute a Tablespoon of flavored instant pudding for the pectin. Keeps it nice and thick.

I made the mocha version of this. The first time I made it, I found it lacking in flavour so I adjusted the recipe to 1 cup of espresso to 2 cups milk and I omitted the pectin, as we don't have it here (and I'm not sure of its inclusion - is it a thickener?). For my personal preferences, and I do state that, I found that the a part very strong espresso to 2 parts milk provided a nice flavour in this refreshing iced coffee. Needed a bit more cocoa too.

I have tried many recipes for this drink and I believe this is the closest to the real thing. It is a little thinner but delicious and much cheaper!!! I added 3 T of caramel to the mixture and topped it with whipped cream and caramel and it was simply wonderful.
