Sorry for the recycled photo—I promise I won’t let it happen again. I finally remembered to pay attention to quantities while whipping up my blendy coffee drink…then I forgot to photograph it. So here it is; it’s at least a starting point for you. If you want it sweeter, add more sugar (or agave or what you will). If it’s too everything for you, add more milk or ice.
·2 c vanilla soymilk (I use Trader Joe’s)
·12 ice cubes (1 tray)
·2 t unsweetened cocoa powder
·3 t sugar
·2½ T espresso powder
Blend and blend and blend. I have a 12-year-old regular blender, not some fancy-pants VitaMix, and it works just fine. Remember to stir it if you’re using a tall glass like this; the top tends to be the frothier, frozen bit, and if you’re not careful you can get a face full of blendy coffee drink. (Don’t pretend it’s never happened to you.)
