How to make Chocolate Frappuccino Mocha Latte
For those of you who are poor like me, or simply love doing things DIY even early in the morning, this is for you.
The name is complicated, I swear the ingredients are not. This took me 15 minutes the first time, and It'll take you less once you have the syrup on the ready. This is made from normal coffee, and not expresso. (If you want it to taste more expresso-like, just add a teaspoon more of coffee when you brew it.)
I like mine hot, but you can cool it by sticking it in the fridge or adding ice. Just don't add ice first (in the cup) then add the hot coffee, or else you could break the cup.
You will notice that most of the drink is actually just milk, and only 1/4 to 1/5 of the actual mix is coffee.
For one cup you will need:
Syrup (this makes a small cup of syrup, so you can use it maybe 10-15 times again, same recipe)
1/4 cup of cocoa powder (NOT GROUND CHOCOLATE)
1/2 cup sugar (I used a little less, maybe 3/8)
1 dash salt
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (make your own!)
2 teaspoons your choice of ground coffee (I chose Trader Joes Bay Blend Arabica Beans)
1/4 cup of hot water
3/4 cup of hot milk (you can steam this if you have the tools)
