Blogging Marathon #31: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Members Choice – Coffee Variations
Dish: Nutella Iced Coffee/Mocha Frappuccino
Summer here is in full swing, and it means sunshine until 9 PM everyday. This means that you need all the energy to have outdoor fun, for as long as the sun shines. What better way to intake caffeine than in a cold coffee drink to keep you going all day. I can’t imagine how much my husband and I have spent on cold coffee drinks at Starbucks this summer. I absolutely love their Mocha frappuccino, as I love the flavors of chocolate and coffee together. Now, I have found a way to replicate this icy cold coffee drink at home, with an ingredient I love: Nutella.
Nutella – is an amazing creamy chocolate spread made with hazelnuts, milk powder and cocoa powder that I love to use as a spread with toast, but it really helps add a chocolatey dimension to the mocha frappuccino. If you love hazelnut flavored coffee or chocolate flavored mocha drinks then this drink is for you. I am posting this incredibly delicious and easy drink as my final post for this month’s Blogging Marathon under the theme ‘Members choice’.
