Blended-Iced Mocha Coffee

Not only do I live a little far from the nearest coffee shop, I also work from home; so, to go out of my way to go and get a blended-ice coffee in the morning, is a little silly.

While we do own several different machines to make several kinds of coffee, I love to figure out how to use my Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System, for recipes because of the convenience factor of it. Sometimes I don’t want or need a whole pot of coffee, and a single-cup, K-cup is perfect for the job.

Jon and I recently met up with my sister and her boyfriend in Peachtree City, GA and we all went to the coffee shop in Senoia, GA. Their mocha blended-ice coffee was fabulous! It is probably the best I’ve ever had. It was so good, we had to make another trip out there before we headed back home. I really can’t stop thinking about how good that frozen coffee was. Plus, the weather is perfect for a cold coffee drink!

Fill the stainless steel cup to the top with ice. Brew your K-cup coffee according to manufacturer’s instructions. I use the smallest setting.

*You want to use a stainless steel cup so the cup will not crack or break due to the hot coffee hitting the cold ice.

Pour the ice-brewed coffee and ice into a blender and add the milk, xantham gum, and extra 1 cup of ice. Blend (with the lid on) on the ice setting according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Blend until all is incorporated then stop the blender.
