This is the thickest of the iced coffees and the most like a milkshake. You may use store-bought chocolate sauce, although you will get the best result if you make the sauce using a high-quality chocolate, such as Valrhona.

Servings: 1
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce
  • 1 double espresso, about 2 ounces
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 10 to 12 ice cubes


Place the chocolate sauce and espresso in a small glass or bowl and stir to combine. Transfer to the jar of a blender, and add the milk and ice. Pulse until the mixture is smooth and thick. Pour into a glass and serve.
