I love mochas. I used to be a regular at Dutch Brothers and Starbucks. Unfortunately, the costs of mochas from the coffee shop can add up quickly. So now I make my own at home. Here’s how I do it. (RSS readers may have to click through to watch the video).

For those who can’t see the video, here is the recipe

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups coffee
  • 3 tablespoons hot cocoa mix or Hershey’s syrup.

Pour milk into blender and mix until frosty ( a few pulses). Microwave milk for 30 seconds, watching to make sure it doesn’t boil over. Pour milk, coffee, and cocoa mix or syrup in blender, give a couple of pulses to mix, and voila! A frugal mocha. You may have to experiment with the amount of cocoa powder to find the combination that you like.
