I did this in a shaker instead of a blender. I didn't add left over coffee or chocolate shavings and it was delicious. Great pick me up for a hot afternoon. I was addicted to those expensive Cappuccino coolers. This will save me alot of money without giving up my treat!
this recipe tasted GREAT!!! it's so easy and i can't believe the results... i LOVE it!!
This tasted like it came from a specialty coffee shop.Yummy!!!!
This is a beautiful recipe to enjoy on Valentine's Day or any of the special days of your life with your special someone. I cant believe how good it tastes. I did not use the coffee which was an optional ingredient, but, I used 1 tsp sugar for sure. It is really smooth and frothy. One thing I'd like to stress on here, it definitely has to be served "chilled cold". So, make sure if you try this, you pack your glass with atleast 12 ice cubes. It tastes like heaven in a sip when the mixture comes over the ice cubes! LOVE IT! Will try adding chocolate curls next time. THANKS A ZILLION for sharing this recipe.
This was really good even without the optional ingredients. I made half the quantity, and upped the vanilla a bit too. Next time I'll add some chocolate syrup to taste!
Very, Very good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5+stars!!!!!!!!!!!!! A must try!!!!!!!!!!
Very good recipe! I like my iced coffee on the sweet side so I added about 2 tablespoons of sugar (did not have any leftover coffee or the chocolate shavings so I skipped those ingredients). I didn't want to crack out the blender so I just got a mason jar (I'm sure you could use any sealable container) and put in the first 5 ingredients like the recipe advises, closed up the jar, then shook it all up. After that I opened my jar and added the milk and shook it all up again, took the lid off the jar and added some ice cubes.
I have made this numerous times. Once making as written, (but w/o the chocolate shavings) and several times adding all the ingredients, (including 12-13 mini ice cubes) all at once into the blender and blending it on high for a bit more than 75 seconds. I have also made this various times, adding anywhere from 2-3 tablesp of sugar. I feel it is a must to add the sugar, so the coffee doesn't over power the taste of this beverage. For those who want just a slight sweet tasting beverage, add 2 tablesp of sugar. For those who have a sweet tooth, add 3 tablesp of sugar. For me, I liked this made adding 2-1/2 tablesp of sugar. One other thing I wanted to mention, I have also made this adding about 17 small (mini) ice cubes, and adding 1 tablespoon of the instant coffee, plus 3 tablespoons of sugar. This made about 24 ounces (3 cups), and that really tasted good. Thank you Nye for posting this delectable tasting beverage. This iced coffee is definitely a keeper!
This was so very simple to make, the only thing I did was add a ton of sugar as it did not taste very good without it. I also added alot more water because it was waaaaayyyyy to strong. Next time I will only use half the coffee!!! Thanks for posting!!!
I didn't blend this drink. I just mixed it together with the good old spoon and it was delightful! I didn't add the left over coffee or chocolate but i did add some coconut syrup. Yum. Thanks for this quick treat recipe!
