Iced Mocha & Mocha Latte: Newest Obsession

ICED MOCHA

Coffee being my recent obsession I especially love mochas. Let me tell you it’s all about MOCHA today hot or cold. I wanted to share this mocha recipe with you all from a long time because it has been my recent weekend favorite also I m sorry I could not post under #TriedNewTuesday on time as I promised but there were few urgent orders that I needed to dispatch in time. Please accept my apologies that I could not deliver these amazing recipes to you on time but m really really getting carried away by workload still trying to keep my shit together.  Talking about today here I m sharing 2 amazing food posts back to back. I hope you guys will enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed making them. Having Pinterest as my best friend I love making coffeehouse drinks at home and for this one, you won’t even need an espresso machine as well!! nor you do have to plan ahead and make some double strength coffee and have it chilled a night before. I prepare my 1 batch at the moment m ready to make a coffee. I guess preparing in advance for the week is boring, also I love to use things fresh to make my drinks! Saving money and having one of my favorite coffee beverages at home makes me feel like I m in heaven and the coffee recipes I m sharing with you every Tuesdays are a way to easy to give a try. When I feel like having a pampered morning I make my coffee just after I wake up. I will put all the things I will need in the fridge and go for an amazing shower because 30 minutes later everything would be perfectly ready for me to make the coffee. The recipe I m sharing today makes 1 tall beverage. If you want for 2, double it. Even if you only replace your daily coffee shop drinks with this once a week you could save in thousands at the end end of the year. Trust me with this!!

If I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life it would be ICED COFFEE!!

Things You Will Need:

  1. 1 cup ice
  2. 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
  3. 3/4 cup milk
  4. 2-3 tbsp chocolate syrup (to taste)
  5. Whipped cream or Ice cream (to decorate)

Instructions:

  1. Fill a glass 2/3 full of ice(about a cup)
  2. Add 1/4 cup of double strength chilled coffee
  3. Add 3/4 cup of chilled frothed milk(you can use a blender to froth your milk)
  4. Drizzle in 2 tbsp of chocolate syrup. I have used mine favorite Hersheys chocolate syrup.
  5. The next step is completely optional but I bet your drink will look fabulous when it will be topped with some whipped cream, cocoa powder, and a little more chocolate syrup.

IN SHORT:

  • All you need to do is to Layer in a glass: ice, coffee, milk and 2 tbsp chocolate syrup.
  • Stir with a straw then add more chocolate syrup if desired
  • Top with an ice cream and add more syrup.

So delicious!!

Mocha Latte

It’s time to give up your favorite coffeehouse mocha latte to save some money and don’t you worry guys this mocha latte recipe is very easy. It will just need 5 minutes of your entire day. I won’t lie but I m completely obsessed with mocha latte geez it tastes so freaking good. My morning sand my late night work is sponsored by mocha most of the time.

Forget about all those amazing coffee house drinks you fell in love with at your neighborhood coffee place. Talking about me I don’t like my city coffee house drinks as they are a way too boring for me or maybe I haven’t tried some good places yet but I bet I can make far better than them and though I m putting myself into trying new recipes each day I m learning new things. Homemade drinks are not only pocket-friendly but they can cost you just pennies that too in just 5 minutes. Doesn’t it sound cool?

You will only need 3 ingredients for this:

  1. 8 ounces Hot Brewed Strong Coffee
  2. 2 tablespoon Hot Chocolate Mix
  3. 1/4 cup Whole milk or Normal Milk
  4. Off course if you want to fancy it up a bit you can add some whipped cream it’s totally up to you I used the frothed milk bubbles here.

Instructions:

  1. So to start, add the hot chocolate mix to the strong hot coffee.
  2. Stir it up well and be sure to really get in there and mix it around crazy so that it’s really well combined.
  3. Then heat up the milk on the stove and if you don’t have one of those fancy little aerators for making foamed milk use a blender. Otherwise, grab your small jar with a lid and whisk and whisk the milk like a crazy for a minute or so until its good and foamy. Then pour that foamed milk into the coffee slowly.
  4. Well like I said unless you want to get a little fancier. Go ahead grab the whipped cream and pour over.
  5. You can whip up this simple at home latte just in minutes with a few easy pantry ingredients.

In Short

  • Stir together the coffee and hot chocolate mix in a large mug.Heat the milk on the stove to warm, it should be around 100 degrees or just hot enough that you can only keep a finger in it comfortably for a couple of seconds. Remove from the stove and froth the milk using a blender or alternatively you can whisk vigorously by hand until the milk gets foamy about in a minute.
  • Pour the frothed milk into the coffee if desired garnish with thick foam or dust a cocoa powder mix over it.

 

Thats all with todays coffee drink guys i hope you all will give it a try. Trust me they are worth the time and efforts you would be putting. Comment below if you have any recipes in mind to share with me. Will be back with an amzinng post until then XOXO

Latte & Frappuccino Recipe:Luxury At Home

What’s your morning ritual??For most of us, each of our morning includes an amazing cup of hot coffee to get the day started and for some, it’s more than JUST A CUP OF COFFEE. its the only thing that keeps them from acting like a zombie in the mornings and eating people’s brain around them.

So, coffee drinkers hers a post for you all.

Homemade lattes are the best way to sip a coffeehouse favorite! made lighter with favorite sweetener, coffee, and milk!

Well, the good news is that it’s gonna be series of posts where I will be sharing a quick guide for making FANCY coffee shop drinks!! I m soo excited to finally work on this. I will be posting all such post under the #LUXURYATHOME tag and I will share these recipes every coming Tuesday’s under #TriedNewTuesday section till the time I can manage to post about COFFEE!! Trying something new and experimenting with the old has always been on my top list whether it be food or anything else.

My city weather has gone kind of insane its cold morning and night and horribly hot during the afternoons making it difficult me to think clear what m I actually craving for HOT or COLD!! I love hot and frozen coffees and this is going to kind of challenging for me but I would love to try some new recipes and share them with you all(if I  will like it) well well its always good to fall into new challenges and achieve them. Coming on to the recipe now:

Preparing a hot latte drink is simple, given you are the right ingredients on hand. A Hot, brewed coffee can brighten up your day and save your money too. Trust me with this you’re putting your hard -earned cash back into your pocket by making all your favorite drinks at home and it tastes as if you’ve bought straight from a coffee shop. Enjoy your hot latte at any time of year morning or night like me during when the thought of having a coffee outside makes you think twice.

LATTE

  • 1 Shot Espresso
  • Hot Milk
  • Tsp Sweetener of Choice

Brew espresso and heat up the milk on the stove top while you wait. Froth milk in a pot with a hand held frother or you can use your normal blender like I have used after adding in sweeter of choice. Add espresso into a mug (pour quantity according to how strong you want your coffee to be) add frothed milk just after,(pour milk at the corner of a mug to get that fancy coffee shop look) top with cinnamon at the end.

My Mondays are just going better and better. Because a good book and a perfectly chilled chocolatey frozen coffee blended with the ice can make any day better. Plus a homemade copycat that tastes way better than the store bought is always a winner.

It’s the time of year! when iced coffees are my everyday companion. I made a run to my local grocery store with mom the other day. It was so fucking hot and humid. As soon as I got home I pulled out my blender and made this beauty. I still love to start my day with a hot cup of latte but this chilled frappuccino is like an evening treat and recently it has replaced all my evening desserts. Because this is itself like dessert in a mug! Fudge sauce, ice cream and all! you feeling me??

So here’s a copycat frozen coffee drink perfect for the hot summer days! I promise It will take only 5 minutes to whip it up.

FRAPPUCCINO

  • 2 Espresso
  • 1/3 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 Cup Ice Cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate Syrup
In a blender add ice, chilled espresso, milk, sugar and chocolate syrup. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth. Serve in a glass with a straw. Enjoy!! You can throw on some ice cream like me or decorate with a whipped cream.
