Almond Mocha Iced Coffee (Frappucino)


Simple pleasures in life often come in small packages, and this is something that we experienced last night. Dinner was done, we were playing cards with friends, and suddenly all of us had this huge urge for something sweet. Coffee was another unanimous choice as we had a long night ahead (full of poker can cards:)), and I for once was not in the mood to spend more than 10 minutes in the kitchen. So we settled for some simple Cold Coffee. Ideally, that would be paired with ice cream, but as our fridge did not hold any, I had no choice but to settle for a simpler version. As luck would have it, I had some almond essence, hersheys chocolate syrup, and whip cream! Yes, the result couldn't have been any better at 11 pm at night!! The Almond Mocha Frappucino was a perfect light dessert for our midnight craving!:)

Ingredients
2 cups milk
5-6 ice cubes
2 tbsp Hersheys chocolate syrup
2 tsp almond essence (optional)
2-3 tbsp instant coffee powder
Whip Cream - for topping
cherriies - for garnish

Method
I don't think I need to write anything here, but I'll just be formal. Drop the ice cubes, milk, chcolate syrup, almond essence, sugar and coffee powder into a blender. Blend for 3-4 minutes until coffee has fully dissolved. Then pulse for 5-6 times to create the froth. Pour in serving glasses and top with whipping cream and a cherry! There, your delicious Flavored Mocha Frappucino is ready to dazzle! Who says simple can't be pretty??!!

Give in to your indulgence by drizzling it with more chocolate syrup. These can serve to be ideal individual desserts for your Parties too; all the glory without half of the fuss, now that's what I call Entertaining:)
