Chilled Café Mocha

I’m the kind of person who likes to have a little coffee with her “cream” (nonfat milk) and sugar, and I like a little chocolate with everything. Though coffeehouse frappés usually taste amazing, their prices and calorie counts are too steep for me—except as an occasional treat. Here’s a cool, refreshing, lowfat DIY alternative that’s perfect for stay-at-home summer afternoons.

Chilled Café Mocha

Makes 1 tall (grande)

3/4 cup nonfat milk
1/2 cup coffee (ideally chocolate flavored)
6 coffee ice cubes*
1 tablespoon maple syrup (adjust to taste)
1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1/8 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

Put all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately, with or without ice. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate shavings or chocolate syrup if desired.

* Use leftover brewed coffee to make coffee ice cubes. Store them in a sealed container in the freezer.
