With a toddler who has been waking up earlier than normal, I need all the energy I can get these days. Especially with a full day ahead of digging in the dirt, going for bike rides, and chasing the geese out of our backyard. And I’m all about needing my morning coffee to get through the day.
Most of the time, I have my usual coffee with a splash of milk. But sometimes I’m in the mood for a sweet treat and will whip up this easy to make iced mocha. It’s great for sipping out on the front porch while watching the little dude play. I even make them in the later in the day with leftover coffee for a quick afternoon pick me up.
How to make an Iced Mocha at home
You can find a printable recipe at the end of the post, but here’s what you’ll need:
half & half
Fill a glass or mason jar with ice.
Using freshly brewed coffee or leftover coffee, fill the glass about half full.
Add a lot or little of half & half, depending on how much coffee taste you want.
Add a few good squirts of chocolate syrup.
Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate.
If you want it to be a bit sweeter, just add some sugar or sweetener before you give it a good stir. Stick a straw in it and we are ready to take on the day…almost…
Chasing after a toddler all day also calls for a filling breakfast. I’m always on the lookout for something easy to make. And something that I can grab and take outside with me is even better.
So when I came across the NEW Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups at my local Walmart, I knew they would be the satisfying and delicious breakfast I’m looking for.
Real Medleys is a delicious blend of yogurt and multigrain granola with real fruit and crunchy nuts. It’s filled with real ingredients that offer quality and convenience for breakfast; the first shelf-stable convergence of granola, fruit, and yogurt – there’s been nothing like this before!
Real Medleys is satisfying with 25 grams of whole grans and 10 grams of protein when made with 1/2 cup of cold skim milk. And making a Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cup for breakfast is super easy! Just add cold milk, stir, and eat!
Crunchy. Cool. Yum. A delicious breakfast choice to go along with my iced mocha.
There are three delicious flavors available from Quaker®: Strawberry Almond, Raspberry Pecan, and my personal favorite, Apple Cinnamon.
And now if you don’t mind, I’m going to make myself a iced mocha and enjoy my Real Medleys yogurt cup out on our back patio.
