I got this recipe from a friend. This makes a great on the go breakfast or anytime snack. It's quick and easy to make and so delicious.

- 3 tablespoons instant mocha-flavored coffee powder (I use Caffe D'Amore Mocha Frappe Freeze coffee mix)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup crushed ice
- Reddi-wip topping (optional)
- chocolate syrup (optional)
- Add all ingredients to blender and mix well.
- Top with Redi-whip and chocolate syrup if desired.
- This makes 1 large or 2 small drinks.
- You can easily double this recipe for more servings.
I made this today and ended up spilling almost all of it on the floor! UGH! What I DID taste was absolutely yummy and I will have to make again. LOL. I only needed 1 1/2 TBS of splenda. The rest of the proportions were perfect. Thanks!
I blended mine with 1 cup milk, 3 tbps cappucino mix, 2 tbsp sugar, vanilla, and ice, and it turned out great.
I love Caffe D'Amore Mochas Frappe Freeze coffee mix. I started buying it at a local costco and make these almost everyday. It has been hard for me to find a good mocha flavored coffee mix and Caffe D'Admore is the closest thing to a coffee shop. You have the option of blendeding, making it hot or iced - it tastes good in all ways. There are also other flavors available that I found through amazon.com (they have toffee, cookies and cream and double fudge) I think they may have lighter versions of their powder but this is already not bad on the fat and calorie content. 3 Tablespoons of the powder is 2.5 grams of fat and 120 calories (I believe) I used to use non-fat milk when I made these but now I have switched to vanilla rice milk which tastes even better. The recipie says to make it with water but I don't think it would taste as good unless you are really cautious about the fat and calories. Another thing I like to do is add 2-3 oz of hot coffee with the milk - it helps my blender blend the ice more smoothly so it is less chunky. You could add torani syrup to these as well to create different flavors. It's a very good drink and you can make it as guilt-free as you'd like.
