Iced Mocha Recipe

There are lots of things you can do with leftover coffee. But, leftover coffee in the labs and offices are a different matter. You don’t exactly have a lot of space to work with, nor an oven. What you likely have is a refrigerator and a desk to work with.

Keeping these constraints in mind, we made a batch of our favourite afternoon caffeinated beverage to share with you.

You’ll need:

  • Large glass ~900ml (30 US ounces)
  • Leftover coffee — about 200 ml (just over a cup) for each serving
  • Chocolate milk mix (liquid or powder)
  • Milk — About 250ml (a little over a glass) per serving
  • Coffee creamer — to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Put two heaping teaspoons of chocolate milk powder or equivalent of chocolate syrup to the glass.
