Mexican almond caramel iced mocha is a dairy free, Latin-inspired coffee drink that will help cool you off during the warmer months. Fresh coffee is mixed with Mexican chocolate, spices and orange then cooled and served over ice.
I’m excited to be showcasing Silk® Caramel Almond Creamer in this recipe to help perk up a seemingly regular mocha drink with the luscious taste of caramel. We are dairy-free in our house and as well as using the creamer for fancy drinks like this, it is also perfect for everyday use in our morning (or afternoon coffee). It has been hard to find good creamers that are dairy free, until now. This Silk Caramel Almond Creamer comes without guilt because it’s totally dairy free, gluten-free, Non-GMO and cholesterol free, so I can enjoy as many mochas as I please.
Silk almond creamers (as well all the ingredients in this recipe) can be found at your local Walmart. The creamers in the dairy aisle.
The inspiration for this recipe is the upcoming Cinco de Mayo holiday. The weather is always warm at the beginning of May and it’s nice to have a delicious iced drink to cool us off. Using good Mexican chocolate keeps the authenticity of this recipe and the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg really rounds out the flavors. Just to shake things up, I added fresh orange zest because chocolate and orange are a wonderful combination of flavors. If you cannot find Mexican chocolate, any of your favorite darker chocolate will certainly work very well.
This recipe takes minutes to make, can be made in large batches and kept refrigerated until you’re ready to enjoy. This will be your favorite iced treat all spring and summer.
