Some of you might know I’m a big fan of chocolate, so when I grab my blender to mix together ice with my favorite mocha ingredients I wonder what I can do to switch it up and it dawns on me: throw in some fruity help, ripe with summer flavor. Natural choices are raspberries and strawberries as I haven’t yet mastered how to make chocolate work with watermelon and blueberries, but give me time…
Iced Raspberry Mocha
2 tablespoons of preferred chocolate syrup
1 handful of ripe raspberries
2 shots of quality espresso
8 ounces of milk
Mix above ingredients together in blender to a smooth shake-like consistency. Pour over ice for a cool drink. Adjust chocolate syrup and/or raspberries for more intense flavor. Enjoy!
