Copycat Starbucks Iced Caffe Mocha
3 tbsp. chocolate syrup, I used Hershey's
2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk of choice, Use any milk of choice such as almond milk, oat milk or whole milk
2-4 tbsp. whipped cream
ice to fill a large cup or glass
2 espresso shots or 1/2 cup coffee, for a milder drink, you can use 1 shot of espresso
Prepare Espresso or coffee, while still hot, whisk together espresso or strong coffee, chocolate syrup and cocoa powder in a heatproof mug or measuring cup. Keep stirring or whisking to cool off a bit. You can also put in fridge or freezer just for a few minutes. Take out and whisk or stir again.
Fill a tall glass up to the top or 3/4 full with ice.
Pour espresso/coffee mixture over the ice and gently spoon in milk.
Mix the milk in or let sit on top of the drink and ease its way down.
Swirl whipped cream over top and sprinkle cocoa powder on top (this is optional).
