Iced Mocha Fusion


Sometimes on a hot day, hot coffee just doesn’t work.  That’s when you have to go to something like an iced mocha.  Chocolate, coffee, and ice make for nice combination.  This quick and easy recipe is one I have amongst all my drink and smoothie recipes.  Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do!



3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons mocha flavored instant coffee mix
1 cup crushed ice


In a blender or food processor, combine milk, vanilla, sugar, coffee powder and crushed ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Coffee Dessert

Coffee Dessert (c)

Well, I did another one.  I had a 5×7 piece of paper, and I still had the coffee.  I know it’s only one color, but I’m having too much fun.  I did some research and apparently coffee painting is an actual thing.  People make art careers out of doing coffee paintings.  I don’t know if this is something that I’m going to switch to or not.  I may just need to get it out of my system and then go back to color.  I guess we’ll find out.

This little guy took me a few hours and I’m more satisfied with how he turned out than the last one.  Maybe it’s because I know coffee techniques a little better now from the last one.  I think I’m going to try a bigger piece now that I’ve done these two.  This guy definitely makes me want to go find a dessert.

As always, my paintings can be found on my storenvy page:  Photo reference from Britta at
