The “Poor Man’s” Iced Mocha

When I was in college, we used to make what we called “the poor man’s mocha” which is simply hot chocolate mix and hot coffee. It didn’t taste exactly like a mocha but it got the point across while saving a decent amount of change from going to the nearby coffee shop.

I might not be a poor college student any more, but with no income due 50 States In A Year, I often feel like that poor college student, trying to figure out how I can treat myself without spending a load of cash.

When Blue Diamond reached out to try the Chocolate Almond Breeze Almond Milk, I wasn’t going to say no and immediately knew what I wanted to make – a poor man’s iced mocha!

I’m a coffee drinker through and through and while most of the time you’ll see me drinking black coffee, once in awhile I do like to enjoy something a little fun and special. Instead of just tossing in a bit of plain almond milk or spending the extra money on a fancier drink, I just made it myself!

I’ve done the cold brew thing a time or two but most of the time I keep it really easy and just save my leftover hot coffee in the fridge until I want iced coffee. Then pour in your desired amount of chocolate almond milk. Delicious!

Hawaii Bound

It’s been a crazy couple of days but my bags are packed and as you read this, I’m making my way to the airport or on the plane to Hawaii. It’s not going to be all fun and games but there has been time built in to relax and enjoy the scenery. See you from Hawaii!
