Iced Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso Ingredients

Only a few ingredients are required for making this delicious iced chocolate almondmilk shaken espresso - Kahlua, coffee, almond milk, and cocoa powder.
  • Cubed Ice: Use freshly filtered ice and avoid crushed ice because it melts more quickly.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk: Delicious almond milk is the heart of this creamy coffee drink. Use an unsweetened, unflavored almond milk. Remember that ‘barista-quality’ non-dairy is enriched with plant-based fats, making it even creamier.
  • Cocoa: Choose high-quality cocoa powder to infuse a chocolatey flavor in every sip. The cocoa can be replaced with chocolate syrup!
  • Espresso Shot: Even though this drink is served over ice, fresh espresso is key. Espresso tastes the best just after brewing, so pull fresh shots for this delicious drink.
  • Kahlua: This luscious liqueur gives this recipe an adult kick with an even more pronounced and decadent coffee flavor.

Barista Tips

Remember to brew the espresso with filtered water to protect your equipment and the taste of your finished coffee.

Don’t forget to seek out ‘barista-style’ non-dairy milk. This will result in a richer and creamier texture in your delicious drink, and do not forget to shake very vigorously so everything combines beautifully!

Variations

If you have a nut allergy, try trading the almond milk for delicious oat milk. This dairy alternative adds a nice toasty note and is allergen-free!
