RECIPES: Mocha Latte, Iced Mocha Latte & More

After we published the recipe for three-minute caramel latte, the mocha latte fans wrote in: “Where’s our mocha latte recipe?”

Here it is, just in time for National Coffee Day, September 29th. Thanks to Krups for the recipe: We’re making the espresso in a Krups combination Coffee Maker & Espresso Machine (the company also makes an espresso machine with a glass carafe, but note that “four cups” means four espresso-size cups).

This recipe isn’t a Starbucks-variety mocha latte: It has a kick of coffee liqueur. For kids and non-drinkers, we have an iced mocha latte milkshake,” below.

ICED MOCHA LATTE RECIPE FOR ADULTS

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces of fresh brewed espresso
  • 4 ounces of skim milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (regular or reduced fat—we use Guittard)
  • 2 ounces of Kahlúa or other coffee liqueur
  • Optional garnish: whipped cream, chocolate shavings and/or chocolate syrup drizzle
  • Preparation

    1. Brew the espresso according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to cool to room temperature.

    2. Fill a tall glass with ice and pour over the ice in this order: chocolate syrup, milk, Kahlúa and espresso. Stir well to combine.

    3. Garnish and serve. Toast to National Coffee Day.

  • Strong-brewed coffee (we use espresso, French roast or
    Italian roast)
  • Milk
  • Chocolate flavor component

    1. Brew coffee. Mix in chocolate flavoring of choice, stirring to combine thoroughly.

    2. Heat milk in a saucepan, whisking to create a froth. (Alternatively, we love our milk foamer.)

    3. Fill a cup with half coffee/chocolate mix, half milk. Spoon foam on top. Garnish as desired.
