When I moved, all of a sudden the nearest coffee went from 2 minutes away to 20 minutes away. Popping out to a cafe became more of a journey than a quick stop, which meant I had to find some alternatives for getting my afternoon pick-me-ups. Before, I would head out and get one of those nice blended drinks, with chocolate chips and ice, topped with whipped cream. Of course, that little treat would come at a cost.
What I discovered, was that for the price of one of my fancy coffee shop drinks, I could purchase a half gallon of International Delight Iced Coffee and an International Delight Coffee Creamer at my local Walmart and make my own delicious drink. Not only would the cost of the ingredients be cheaper, but I could make more than one iced beverage without leaving the house!
At first I was a little worried. When I got to the dairy section at Walmart, they were almost completely out of International Delight Iced Coffee and International Delight Coffee Creamer. I was relieved to see that they still had a York Peppermint Patty Coffee Creamer still available.
Then I turned around and BAM! – an entire fridge filled with ID Iced Coffee, the main ingredient for my gourmet iced coffee creation – Grasshopper Iced Mocha.
Grasshopper Iced Mocha
- 1 cup International Delight Iced Mocha
- 1/4 cup International Delight York Peppermint Patty Coffee Creamer
- 1/2 cup ice crushed
- 1/8 cup chocolate chips chilled
- Whipped Cream
- Chocolate Syrup
Add International Delight Iced Mocha, International Delight York Peppermint Patty Creamer, ice, and chocolate chips into a blender, and blend.
Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Sprinkle a couple of chocolate chips on top
The chocolate chips blend up easier if they are chilled or frozen. Otherwise they might just clump together at the bottom of the blender. Alternately, you can chop them up and add them to the mix.
One of the things I love about this recipe is the mint flavor from the creamer. It’s a great way to add that little extra bit of freshness to your homemade iced coffee. I find myself blending up this tasty beverage almost daily as a morning or evening treat. It’s perfect for sitting on the deck or patio and relaxing to help you recharge.
You can even serve the Grasshopper Iced Mocha as part of an outdoor party! You don’t have to crush the ice, you can simply pour everything over ice in a pitcher. Instead of blending in the chocolate chips, you can just sprinkle a few on top. It can also be customized by adding more or less creamer and chocolate syrup.
If you decided to blend yourself a Grasshopper Iced Mocha to help you cool off while you’re enjoying the great outdoors, let me know what you think!
