Mocha Coffee Slush

My sweet husband surprised me with a homemade mocha slush. It was very similar to this one, but nowhere near the cost!!!

Here is his recipe.

1 cup crushed ice
3/4 cup milk
3 T. mocha coffee drink mix
1-2 T. chocolate syrup
1/2 t. vanilla extract
whipped cream

In a blender or food processor blend milk, coffee mix, chocolate syrup, sweetener & vanilla until smooth. Serve immediately topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!

The great thing about slushes or smoothies is that that you can play around with the different flavors to come up fantastic drinks!
