Spicy Iced Mocha: Dairy & Coffee Free

You will love this spiced iced mocha because it’s easy to make, rich, and soothing. The best part about this recipe? The coffee is optional. This refreshing drink is energizing with a bit of spice! It’s sure to give your morning a boost.

For this Spiced Iced Mocha recipe we used oat milk, because it’s our favorite. Oat milk always seems to taste more rich and creamy than other pant milks. But feel free to substitute any type you like!

There are little rules for cooking. Most of our learning has been through years and years of trial, error, and tweaks. So don’t feel bad if you experiment here and there, and it doesn’t work for you. The next time you might find that perfect balance of spice.

How to Make a Coffee Free Mocha

First, add the plant milk to a blender along with cacao powder, nutmeg, clove, turmeric, cinnamon, and your favorite sweetener. Also, if you have any reishi or chaga mushroom powders on hand, this would be the perfect drink for it! We used agave as our sweetener and it turned out really well.

Lately we’ve also seen some recipes of people using monk fruit as a sweetener as well. Have you ever used monk fruit sweetener? Let us know if you have used it in the comments below.

Blend on high for about 30 seconds and pour over ice immediately. This recipe makes about 2 cups of iced mocha not including the ice, so be sure to use a large glass.

We think there’s just something so satisfying about enjoying an iced drink with a straw. By using reusable straws, you help limit one time use of plastics. We can still enjoy our comforts while supporting and funding a better world.
