Iced coconut water mocha

Anyone else hooked on iced drinks yet? I don’t think it’s just down to the pregnancy for me, as even last summer I was drinking iced coffee like it was my job! Back then I had an addiction to homemade cold brew coffee (I used Angela’s method for making it) and I couldn’t get enough of the stuff. This year I’ve been loving a decaf chocolately twist on that, my homemade iced coconut water mocha.

If you’ve tried the shop bought versions I’m sure you’ll already be aware of how tasty a coconut water latte or mocha is, however they can be a bit pricey and some brands contain dairy and sugar which isn’t for everyone.

These two versions are both dairy and refined sugar free, vegan and paleo friendly. They are full of great ingredients that are going to add to your health, while also giving you a coffee boost!

One version is blended with full fat creamy coconut milk from a tin, and the other is topped up with unsweetened almond milk for a lighter version. Both taste absolutely wonderful and very refreshing!

They take just minutes to make too. I could just make them to look at! I love that swirl of milk through the ice.

Notes
  1. You can use decaf instant coffee or a shot of cold brew coffee in it's place
  2. Instead of the coconut sugar and cocoa powder try using Chot Shot syrup
  3. In place of the coconut sugar try any other sweetener or you may find it sweet enough without

Don’t miss the notes on the recipe above for some suggested substitutions, I’m definitely going to give the version with Choc Shot a try!
