Easy Iced Mocha Recipe

Tall Glass. For serving your iced mocha coffee recipe, you want to have a tall glass on hand.

The Simple Ingredients:

Strong Brewed Coffee or Espresso Shots. In order to make this coffee recipe, you will want to have a couple of espresso shots on hand, or strong coffee that has been brewed.

Chocolate Sauce. Chocolate syrup or chocolate sauce can give you the delicious chocolate flavor in this iced mocha coffee recipe. 

Ice Cubes. You will want to have a cup of ice cubes on hand or enough to fill your glass with ice, to make this iced coffee.

Milk. Typically, whole milk is used for this coffee recipe, but you can feel free to use the same amount of your preferred milk of choice.

How to Make Iced Mocha Coffee at Home

To make the iced mocha coffee, first, take a tall glass and add in your chocolate syrup. 

Then add the strong brewed coffee or espresso once it has cooled slightly. Give the mixture a good stir until the chocolate syrup dissolves in the mixture. 

Add the ice cubes into the glass, so that they reach almost to the top of the glass. 

Then pour your milk of choice into the glass. Give it a good stir to mix all of the ingredients in the iced drink together. 

Before serving, top the iced coffee with whipped cream. Then serve the iced coffee right away and enjoy!

White Chocolate Mocha. To make an iced white chocolate mocha you can follow the same recipe as above, only substitute the chocolate syrup with this recipe for white chocolate sauce

Using Chocolate Milk. If you want an extra chocolatey flavor, you could also consider using chocolate milk in this recipe. There is something that seems wrong about using chocolate milk, but it is essentially the same thing, only the chocolate syrup is already mixed in the milk. 

Plant-Based Milk. Rather than using a traditional cup of milk in the iced mocha, you may also wish to use a one-to-one substitute of non-dairy milk. Some great dairy alternative options include coconut milk, almond milk, and oat milk. 

Make it a Mocha Frappe

There’s not much difference between homemade mochas and a mocha frappe. The only difference really is that one is blended and the other isn’t. If you want to turn this recipe into a frappe, you can easily do so by adding all of the ingredients into a blender. You might also enjoy adding some chocolate chips into the mix as well. 

Different Coffee Types

If you are looking to use strong brewed coffee, then you may be wondering which is the best option. There is cold brew coffee, hot coffee, instant coffee, and the list goes on. 

Essentially you can use any of these coffee options in your recipe. If you are using hot coffee, then it’s a good idea to let it cool before adding it to your ice mixture, so that it doesn’t become diluted. 

My personal favorite is to use a cold brew concentrate to make a cold brew mocha. The cold brew typically gives your iced mocha the best overall flavor. But regular strong brewed coffee also works well, especially if you are in a rush.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Rather than using store-bought chocolate syrup or chocolate sauce, you can also make your own by mixing cocoa powder together with a few other ingredients for deliciousness. This tasty mocha sauce will walk you through a tasty recipe to make your own chocolate syrup. 


Should you use coffee ice cubes?

If you want to make coffee cubes for your iced coffee, this is just fine. They will help prevent your drink from becoming diluted, but it is not required since you are using espresso or strong brewed coffee. 

Do you need an espresso maker?

Many of us might think that we can’t make fancy homemade coffee because we don’t have a fancy espresso machine. You do not need an expresso maker for this recipe, or even to make espresso. You can easily use strong-brewed coffee or French press coffee for a delicious, iced mocha coffee. 

Can I make this in the microwave instead of on the stovetop?

Yes, if you want to make the coffee in the microwave, you can do this instead.

How can I make iced coffee cubes?

To make iced coffee cubes, you will first want to brew the coffee. Then place it into ice cube trays, and put them in the freezer until they are set. Then you can use your coffee ice cubes any time you want.

Can I make this iced coffee dairy free?

Yes, you can make this iced coffee dairy free by substituting the milk for your favorite milk alternative, or dairy free coffee creamer.
