Spring is right around the corner, and I am already fantasizing about the day when I get to walk out onto my patio, with an iced coffee mocha in hand, and bathe in the sunshine while reading a good book.
I have been playing around with some iced coffee mocha recipes in my kitchen, and found the perfect combination for a clean eating iced coffee mocha recipe! This recipe has a prominent coffee flavor, with hints of chocolate and a slight sweetness from added honey. Here’s what you need:
Coffee is the main ingredient in this clean eating iced coffee mocha. You’ll just need one cup.
I have been avoiding using sugar as much as possible, and have been choosing alternative sweeteners. I added about a teaspoon of honey to 8 ounces of coffee. This was the perfect amount to make it slightly sweet, without going over board.
I went with an unsweetened cocoa powder to give it a perfect chocolate flavor, while still maintaining the integrity of a clean eating recipe. The unsweetened cocoa adds the perfect balance of chocolate flavor without over-sweetening the drink.
My family only drinks whole milk, because recent studies show that full fat milk is better for most people (source). We usually buy organic, when the grocery budget allows for it. I find whole milk gives this clean eating iced coffee mocha a rich base that works well with the coffee, honey and cocoa.
