Ice Blasted Mocha


I love waking up to a cup of coffee in the morning! There’s something comforting and peaceful about the experience – not to mention, I’m fond of the energy boost the caffeine provides, as well!

About twice a week, I enjoy skipping off to one of those gourmet coffee shops and having the barista whip me up a nice, ice blended mocha. There’s something so indulgent about drinking a decadent coffee topped with a big shot of whipped cream. Then I heard some shocking news.  One small drink has roughly 400 calories, 8 grams of fat and 38 grams of sugar, and that’s without the whipped cream! Then, of course, there’s the expensive price tag. That’s a lot of fat, sugar and money!

I started experimenting with recipes and found one that incorporates using my leftover morning brewed coffee. I just pour the leftovers into an ice cube tray and freeze. Super convenient and cost effective.

NutriBullet’s Ice Blasted Mocha

  • 4 – 5 ice cubes of frozen coffee or 1 cup instant coffee, cooled
  • 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder or hot chocolate powder
  • almond milk or milk alternative to the MAX line
  • whipped cream – optional

Add everything to your Short NutriBullet Cup, extract and enjoy! I like to top mine off with just a touch of whipped cream (can’t lose all the decadence!)

A nice homemade Ice Blasted Mocha is a perfect morning or midday treat. It’s also a great way to utilize leftover coffee. Honestly, this is better, healthier and cheaper than the coffee shop’s version!
