Frosty Philly Mocha

I LOVE frozen coffees, and when they are as smooth and creamy as a milk shake… Mmm.. perfection! I’ll tell you, I very rarely buy a frozen coffee. For two reasons: 1) They are way too expensive. 2) I make them better than any Barista I’ve met. ;) You can always change things up. Add some flavoured syrups, some flavoured coffee creamers, use different kinds of coffee. By changing up one or two things, you will never have the same coffee twice.

The secret to the best homemade frozen coffee? Coffee cubes. When you have leftover coffee in your pot in the morning, pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it. Then store them in a resealable plastic bag until one hot afternoon that you’re dying to have an iced coffee. Using frozen coffee helps give you a great coffee flavour, but doesn’t water it down, like using regular ice would.

Note: The Kahlua in this recipe is optional, BUT, I love what a shot of Kahlua does to an iced coffee, it actually makes it extremely creamy, and nearly milkshake-like.

And yes, this was another entry for the Real Women of Philadelphia contest. I submitted 15 recipes that last week, and I still haven’t posted all of them on my blog yet. Ya think they should have noticed me during that last week especially, huh? ;) After putting in 35 recipes, and being very involved in the forums for over 2 months, and promoting their product, I won a ticket to the live event/dinner celebration in Toronto. HOWEVER, flight & accommodations are not covered. *sigh* Seems I won’t be leaving the prairies after all. I have some friends that are going to the live even though (some as finalists and some that won tickets and live in the area), so I will be able to see and hear about it. Just not quite the same though. If anyone has a private jet, you mind if I hitch a ride to TO? I can pay you in cream cheese desserts!! ;)

    I'm so sorry you won't be going. You worked so very hard. I appreciate all of these delicious recipes! I'm checking my fridge and pantry for ingredients to make this. It's so hot here, and I really want coffee! This may be my dinner tonight.

    Thanks, Sarah! This contest was really good for me, pushed me in a new direction, and I like where I'm heading (even though I'm not sure where that is yet). :)

      Thanks, Betty! I can’t seem to keep up with the ice cubes this year. I need to brew coffee JUST to freeze, no leftovers. :)
