Making a Lighter Iced Mocha Recipe

To make a lower-fat homemade mocha simply swap to low-fat milk, use sugar-free chocolate syrup and skip the whipped cream topping.

Making a Vegan Iced Mocha

Being vegan certainly doesn’t have to mean that you can’t make an iced mocha latte at home, or that you have to miss out on any of your favorite delicious coffee drinks.

Swap the milk for your favorite dairy-free alternative, such as almond, oat, or soya milk, and make sure the syrup that you are using is suitable for vegans. Another option is using chocolate oat milk and skipping the syrup entirely.

You can make vegan whipped cream using either coconut milk (which would add a complimentary coconut flavor to your mocha iced coffee!) or by whipping aquafaba, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.

Making Iced Coffee without a Coffee Machine

If you love iced mocha, how to make it without a coffee machine might be something that you want to know.

Well, the good news is, while a coffee machine is useful, you don’t need one to make iced mocha at home. You don’t even need to use filter coffee or a drip brewer. So, how do you make a mocha without brewing coffee?

If you’ve only got instant, simply make a strong coffee by dissolving 2 teaspoons of instant granules in a little boiled water.

Making Iced Coffee without a Blender

Even better, you don’t even need a blender to make this delicious, iced mocha at home.

If you want to know how to make a mocha at home without a blender, there are a few options.

First, you can leave the ice cubes whole, cool your coffee in the fridge, mix it with the milk and chocolate and pour it all over the ice cubes.

If, however you prefer your iced mocha with crushed ice, you can either do as above, but pour it all into a cocktail shaker, and shake together to crush. Or you can place the ice cubes into a sealed bag and carefully crush them with a rolling pin.

Chandra Melo

Marketing as job, barista as passion. An authentic coffee lover, looking for the next fantastic cup of coffee that I will fall in love with. Coffee, for me, is more than a beverage. It's about community and connection - how can all the world consume the same fruit? And differently? How can we have so many different tastes? I also don't know. And because of this, I feel in love each day more for this world. Happy to share and make a change in the coffee community.
