Occasionally on hot, long drives, I will treat myself to either Peet’s Freddo or a Starbucks Frappuccino. Although I’d prefer to support a local coffee shop, the interstate does not offer many options. Recently, thanks to a friend’s suggestion, I realized I could make these drinks at home. A vegan homemade mocha espresso frozen blended drink is the perfect pick me up on a lazy, hot afternoon and as easy to make as a smoothie.
Homemade Mocha Espresso Frozen Blended Drink
Place in blender:
- 1.5 cups ice
- one shot of espresso (cool it before hand for best results. Substitute really strong coffee if you don’t have an espresso machine
- 2 cups soymilk (I prefer vanilla flavored)
- organic, vegan chocolate syrup to taste
Blend and enjoy! No disposable cups involved.
You may want to adjust the ice to soymilk ratio based upon how thick you like your frozen drinks.
