Iced Mint Mocha Recipe

So here is something a little different from my wonderful selection of coffee syrup recipes. This is a refreshing beverage, perfect for a hot day or if you fancy something a little different to your average cup of coffee. I discovered this fantastic creation after buying some chocolate mint syrup, and delving into my freezer to find some ice cream to complement the syrup nicely. A bit of ice, a blender, and an espresso coffee maker, together with the usual milk and coffee, and the Iced Mint Mocha was born.

Here is what you need to make the Iced Mint Mocha:

  • Plenty of ice
  • 1 teaspoon of Monin mint chocolate coffee syrup
  • 2 scoops of mint choc chip ice cream
  • 1 or 2 espresso shots
  • Cold milk
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate dust/sprinkles

You will also need a blender and ideally an espresso maker for this creation.

Directions

  1. Put handful of ice into blender
  2. Add 2 scoops of mint choc chip ice cream
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of chocolate mint flavoured coffee syrup
  4. Pour in preferred amount of cold milk (depending on how thick you want it) and 1-2 shots of espresso (depending on how strong you like it)
  5. Blend for one minute
  6. Pour into glass and top with whipped cream and chocolate dust/sprinkles or a drizzle of chocolate mint syrup

The Iced Mint Mocha is now my favourite. The refreshing mint and the sweet chocolate make this iced coffee espresso drink a light combo. This is also good as a sundae-style dessert, just add less milk so the mixture is really thick, and then top with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and a drizzle of chocolate mint syrup. Monin coffee syrups are available in a variety of flavours including almond, hazelnut, vanilla and white chocolate. My coffee syrup addiction has continued ever since I started working for a coffee supplier, and I’m not willing to go cold turkey until I have created as many inspiring recipes as possible.
