How to Make A Starbucks Iced Mocha

How do you make a Starbucks iced mocha? It is actually really easy. I’m not sure why we spend $5 on this!
Right now, we all want to escape the heat and an iced drink (with chocolate!) is a good way to go. I am a fan of the iced mocha and have ordered many myself BUT I don’t want to spend the money on it or the calories.
A Starbucks grande iced caffe mocha with 2% milk has 350 calories. Ouch.
Mine has 114 calories and I kept the whipped cream (that only adds about 15 calories). I have found that a better chocolate syrup is the way to go with a mocha. I found this Ghiradelli version at Walmart and it is tasty!
I also hear that there is a Torani mocha sauce out there – and if you can find it – you can’t really beat an Italian version of a mocha sauce.
I have made other iced mochas and used Mason jars for storage.

Do you really have time to stop into Starbucks? NO! You are busy and are ready for such a moment with some cold coffee that you either cold brewed, bought, or made earlier and stored in the fridge.
My concept here was to add some whipped cream to the top because it is actually pretty light and not mix the sauce into the drink. The chocolate sauce is great on top of the cream. You get to taste more chocolate this way.
You can add the whipped cream and the chocolate sauce to the Mason jar version to dress it up.
I think this is a great grown-up substitute for ice cream on a hot summer’s day. This is my pick me up at about 3 PM as I melt into a puddle.
What do you drink to cool off?
