Lola’s Iced Chocolate Espresso
So here I am, back again with another syrup recipe I have conjured up over the summer months. My love for coffee syrups has grown and grown, and so has my bank of recipes. Here is one I thought you might enjoy.
This is a personal favourite for a mid-morning pick-me-up. My early mornings are spent in commuter traffic, horns non-stop and cars bumper to bumper. When I finally arrive at work, I am confronted with a large pile of post to open and five tasks on my desk to be completed by lunchtime. So by the time 11 oâ€™ clock strikes, I am first to the kitchen to make my creation. I donâ€™t always remember the ice, but cold milk alone is better than no iced chocolate espresso at all.
Here is how to make my iced chocolate espresso:
You will need:
- 1 or 2 shots of espresso (Depending on how strong you like it, I prefer 2)
- Cold milk (Again, the amount depends on how milky you like your coffee)
- Monin chocolate coffee syrup
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate dust/sprinkles
- Fill your glass with ice
- Add cold milk
- Stir in your shot/s of espresso and 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup
- Top with whipped cream and chocolate dust/sprinkles
The beauty with this creation is you can make the drink as strong or weak as you like. If you are a die-hard espresso fan then opt for more shots of espresso and just a dash of milk. If you prefer your coffee weak, opt for more milk than coffee.
This is my latest coffee syrup addiction, and is a perfect pick-me-up with a sweet kick. Since joining CafÃ© Rico in June I have created a number of recipes, which I like to share with my fellow coffee enthusiasts. I still love my cinnamon syrup iced coffee but have been trying out new syrups regularly to spice things up. I decided I needed to make something with a bit of a kick to help me through the morning. There are loads of Monin coffee syrups available, including almond, amaretto, white chocolate and mint.
I used to hate coffee until I started working for a wholesale coffee supplier and decided it was time to confront my coffee fears. If you like mochas, youâ€™ll love my iced chocolate espresso. I havenâ€™t looked back, and will post more of my recipes soon!
