Mocha Chip Frozen Coffee
It's the middle of Summer - and it is HOT outside!! So what could be more refreshing than a nice COLD frozen coffee drink?
Well, the problem with most frozen coffee drinks, is that they are loaded with sugar (about 15 teaspoons for a medium or Grande size). And if you get a sugar free version - it is made with icky artificial sweeteners. Plus, all that dairy that most frozen coffee drinks contain can be bloating (who wants to be bloated in the Summertime? Or ever?)
I have the solution! My version is dairy-free, rich in magnesium, protein & anti-aging collagen; and best of all - it has NO ADDED SUGARS!!!
1 cup of Ripple Milk (Or you could use your favorite non-dairy milk, like coconut milk, or almond milk.)
1-2 teaspoons of organic instant coffee (depending on how strong you like it - I usually go with 1.5 tsp.). - You could also just use 1/2 cup of strong brewed or cold brewed coffee (Just reduce the amount of Ripple Milk, if you use brewed coffee, or you can freeze them into ice cubes).
1 teaspoon of raw cacao powder (gives it a chocolate taste - use more if you like more).
1 teaspoon of Pyure organic stevia blend sweetener
A drizzle of vanilla extract - (about 1/8 teaspoon)- I like to use this alcohol-free version for smoothies
1/2 of a scoop (about 1 Tablespoon) of vegan vanilla protein powder - like Warrior Blend (optional)
1 cup of ice (or more as needed)
Put the Ripple milk into the blender, add the instant coffee, collagen creamer, cacao, Pyure sweetener, salt, and vanilla - give it a whirl on low to combine everything. Let it soak for a minute for the instant coffee to dissolve.
Add in the ice - and blend until smooth & desired thickness (add more ice if you like it thicker).
Taste & adjust as needed (add more Pyure if you want it sweeter, more cacao if you want more chocolate taste, etc).
Add in the chocolate chips and blend until they are broken up into flecks (whole chips just sink to the bottom of your glass).
Pour & enjoy right away!
