I only became a coffee drinker a few months ago. I’ve always loved the smell of coffee, but I could never find the perfect coffee drink that would win over my affection for tea and other beverages…until I met this one. Now I can’t get enough of it, and I indulge in this rich and creamy blended frozen mocha at least three times a week!
Every morning I take our leftover coffee from the bottom of the coffeepot, and pour it into ice cube trays to make frozen coffee cubes. They’re perfect for adding to blended coffee drinks because they won’t water them down like ice does.
I add French Vanilla Coffee-mate to all of my blended coffee drinks to introduce a smooth and creamy component. I’m loving these limited edition bottles (available exclusively at Target) designed by HGTV star David Bromstad (Design Star and Color Splash). It’s fun to open up the fridge and discover something unexpected and out of the ordinary in his whimsical artwork. I always feel incredibly inspired by David’s work because the style is so accessible, and I am motivated to create my own artwork each time I look at his.
When I find myself needing to take a minute to recharge my creative batteries, regain my focus and find new motivation, I take an afternoon coffee break. Since it’s been over 100 degrees here for the better part of summer, I’ve been making a lot of blended drinks lately, and frozen mochas are my favorite. After a frozen coffee break, my creative juices are flowing again, and I’m ready to get back to it!
What You’ll Need:
- 6 oz Brewed Coffee, cooled
- 2 tablespoons French Vanilla Coffee-Mate
- 2 tablespoons Hot Cocoa Powder
- 10-12 Coffee Ice Cubes
- Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve immediately.
I’m also giving away a fun prize pack of goodies that will help you find your own inspiration! I love this fun chalkboard print and cute mini notebooks, and these pens are the only kind that I use!

The leftover coffee idea is genius! I’ve had much less coffee than normal since I’ve had my surgery, but a friend is bringing me an iced coffee today and I am IN HEAVEN.

It looks refreshing–I don’t drink coffee, but I’ll bet something like chocolate milk would be a fun substitute.
I’m not really a coffee drinker but you made this look so so good! I love the ice cube idea! I’m sure the same method could be used with other flavors too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
