Being one of the regular customers of Gloria Jean’s, literally spending weekends there reading, studying, catching up with friends or working, I have grown fond of their Gourmet Iced Chocolate with an Espresso Shot. Such fondness leads to frequent odd hour cravings of this mouth watering blessing on mankind and there’s nothing better than to be able to make the Iced Chocolate at home which tastes exactly the same.
I have previously tried to make it at home but for some reason it never tasted the same. Past few days, the holiday spirit had me cooking and experimenting with ingredients, creating a fusion of different foods and that precisely led me to giving this recipe another shot! After the Rejuvenate With Dayfresh Blogger Meet-up, I had my fridge stocked with Dayfresh Products so I thought why not give Dayfresh a try.
So here it is, for all you Gloria Jean’s and Coffee lovers! Do try and let me know 😀
- 1 cup Ice Cubes
- 1/4 cup Gloria Jeans Coffee – Brewed and hot. (Easily available at GJC Outlets)
- 1 cup Dayfresh Full Fat Milk
- 1 scoop each of Chocolate and Vanilla Ice-cream (Any brand)
- 2 tablespoons Chocolate Powder
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla Powder
- Whipped Cream (Optional)
Coffee Brewing – Make sure the coffee you use is properly brewed and is warm while making the Iced Chocolate. Coffee is an optional thing if you don’t like your Iced Chocolate strong. You can increase and decrease the quantity of coffee according to your taste.
After you’re done brewing the coffee, the easy part starts. Blend in together ice cubes, Dayfresh Full Fat Milk, Vanilla and Chocolate powder, coffee and finally the Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream. Blend the mixture on high until the it reaches that thick, smooth texture and Viola!!! The GJC Gourmet Iced Chocolate with Espresso Shot is ready!
Pour the Iced Coffee in glasses and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Serving size: 2-3, depending on the size of the glass.
You can also add chocolate syrup, brownie crumbs or chocolate chips on the top for extra chocolate.
It is a must to make this with Dayfresh Milk, either Premium or Full Fat, to get the right taste. I have tried it with other milk brands but trust me none of them gave such amazing results!
