One Iced Mocha Coconut Comin’ Right Up!

I’m so exciting to be participating in the second round of Get Your Chef On hosted by two fab ladies – Jen over at Four Marrs and One Venus and Julie over at White Lights on Wednesday.
The secret ingredient is coconut and at first I was trying to find a dinner recipe that included coconut.  But then my super smart friend, Stephanie, suggested that I try to recreate my favorite Starbuck’s drink, Iced Mocha Coconut.  And I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought about that sooner!
So let’s get right to it!!

Here’s what you need:

  • 8 ounces of brewed coffee
  • Chocolate syrup
  • 1 tablespoon sugar – I like my coffee sweet but if you don’t, I would leave this out.
  • Whipped Cream
  • Now for the secret ingredient – Edy’s Creamy Coconut Fruit Bars
  1. Brew your coffee.  I always get Folger’s Colombian.
  2. Pour about 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup into your glass.
  3. Pour about 8 ounces of coffee into your glass.
  4. Now for the secret ingredient – Take one Edy’s Creamy Coconut Fruit bar and just drop it into the glass.  Ok, don’t just drop it.  Gently place in your glass.  It will quickly dissolve.
  5. Add sugar if you want it sweeter.
  6. Add ice cubes.  I personally don’t like a lot of ice because I don’t want it to get watered down.  I really need to make the coffee ice cubes:)
  7. Add whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and coconut flakes to top if you want.
  8. Enjoy!  I really think that it tastes just like the drink from Starbucks and I’m pretty picky when it comes to my coffee drinks.
I hope you try it for yourself then come back and tell me what you think.

  12. That sounds amazing! I can taste it now….One of my favorite drinks is the Frappe Mocha from McDonald’s. I love the idea of adding coconut to that for a little flavor infusion! Thanks for sharing at the Pomp Party! Pinning to our Pomp Party board!

  13. What a great idea to put a frozen coconut bar in – it chills the coffee and adds creamy flavorful goodness at the same time!

  18. Wow, that sounds amazing. My old stand by is a decaf mocha from Starbucks. I’ve never tried it with coconut. I’m sure it adds a great kick to it. Will definitely try soon. Thanks for sharing!
