Holiday Drinks with Valentus

For you coffee lovers who want to add some zing to the holidays, try adding some Mocha Ice Cubes to your SlimRoast Coffee or holiday festivities.

These Mocha Ice Cubes take iced coffee to the next level. In addition to using them for iced coffee, another option is to toss a bunch into the blender along with some almond, cashew milk, organic cream or non-dairy milk of your choice and have a frosty chocolate coffee treat.  I really have enjoyed my cup of coffee to be iced; and for it to have a bit of chocolate. Because seriously, what isn’t better with chocolate?! 

For me, I have just been all about keeping it simple with the ice cubes and some hemp milk, almond milk, cashew or coconut milk.   

Mocha Iced Cubes for Coffee

•If you want to substitute stevia             for the coconut palm sugar, I recommend using a high quality liquid stevia.
•I have made these with both unsweetened baking cocoa and raw cacao powder. The baking cocoa is more mellow.  If you go with the raw cacoa, you may need to adjust the sweetener so taste the mixture before you freeze it.


Serving Size is 3 Cubes – Makes 30
1 ounce ice cubes or 10 Servings

28 ounces Hot Water (2-4) SlimRoast Coffee Packets (Already Brewed)
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons unsweetened organic baking cocoa OR raw cacoa powder
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons coconut palm sugar or liquid stevia (Optional)
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch finely ground sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat over low heat.

Whisk continuously until palm sugar and cocoa powder are incorporated.

Remove from heat, allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Whisk again to reincorporate any cocoa that may have settled to the bottom of the pot and pour into ice cube molds. I set my ice cube trays on a small baking sheet to make them easier to transfer in and out of the freezer.

Once the ice cubes are set, remove and store in a ziploc type freezer bag or other freezer safe container. Enjoy!

You can enjoy these iced SlimRoast Coffee Cubes any which way for the holidays!:)
