What does chocolate milk in coffee taste like?
An iced mocha coffee is one of the most popular iced coffee recipes.
The combination of coffee with chocolate has long been regarded as one of the best flavor pairings, in both hot and cold coffee drinks.
Typically the chocolate is in a syrup or powder form. But ultimately when combined in the glass it becomes chocolate milk.
So in our quest for simplicity, we asked why not simply create an iced coffee made with chocolate milk (pre-made).

Through the Summer I tend to have some cold brew in the fridge ready to go, which speeds up the process to under 5 minutes to make this recipe!
Sweeteners and flavor
The vanilla extract rounds out the chocolate and coffee flavors and shouldn’t be skipped over.
If your chocolate milk isn’t sweet enough, you can also add some liquid sweetener to your cold chocolate coffee – simple syrup like this works well, or make your own.
I have included some heavy cream to add on top of our iced coffee chocolate milk drink. For something a little fancier you could also use whipped cream or a sweet cream cold foam.
Or omit the cream altogether if you don’t like cream in your coffee.
How to make iced coffee with chocolate milk
Step 1 – Chocolate milk
The first step is to fill each glass with ice and divide your chocolate milk into each glass.
Our recipe is enough for 4 serves, so if you only want to make one glass, divide the recipe by 4.
Step 2 – Add the coffee
Add coffee to each glass to fill almost to the top, leaving a little room for the cream.
Depending on the size of your glass you may want to top it up with more chocolate milk or coffee, based on whether you want the drink to be more chocolatey or coffee flavored.
Step 3 – Add sweetener and flavor
Add the vanilla extract to the glass and stir to combine.
If you are using liquid sweetener, add it now and stir.
Step 4 – Add the cream
Finally, top the glass with a spoonful of heavy cream.
Stir to combine, or enjoy the pretty layered look in your glass and enjoy.
