    AMAZING!!! I have been craving a coffee and this has definitely fulfilled this craving for coffee and chocolate. I substituted fat free milk and almond flavoring for the almond milk as reccommended. I added the choclate syrup to the mix and skipped the whipped cream. When I shook it up it was frothy - 3/16/10

    RE: GOTHOLI's Comment

    Splenda is a sugar substitute.
    The almond milk could be replaced with soy milk or fat free milk.
    Redi-Whip is a specific brand of whipped cream.
    Hershey's is a specific brand of chocolate syrup.

    I hope that helps you locate the products in the UK. - 2/13/10

    We traded the almond milk for chocolate soy and only put half of the Splenda. It is DELICIOUS!!! Will certainly be making this again. Healthier and it's cheaper than my usual Starbucks addiction. - 12/25/09

    Yummy! I had to use what I had in the house and it was delish. This may be my new morning drink...I used 1% milk, splenda mocha flavored sweetner and a packet of tasters choice instant coffee. I'll be sure to pick up the almond milk this weekend and give it a try. - 6/6/10

    I must admit I was scared to try this, but I took the plunge. I used sweetened almond milk and sugar instead of splenda and unsweetened almond milk. My calorie count came out to 154 with the whipped cream and syrup. This will become a nice treat for me. - 6/3/10

    I am so jealous! I'm deathly allergic to Almonds but this sounds soooo good! I'm also amazed that Almond milk has only 40 calories per cup! I guess I'll try it with soy or rice milk but wish there were something more calorie comparable to the Almond :-( - 5/18/10

    I took all the ingredients and put them in a bottle and shook them until blended. I have spent $4 or more at Starbucks and get a pretty good ice coffee. Now I know how to make a really good iced coffee for a fraction of the cost and calories! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe - 6/4/10

    Nice idea. only I will use coffee substitute, kaffree roma, looks and tastes like coffee from health food store but without the caffeine and since I am lactose intolerant, use lactaid and almond flavoring. Thanks for the receipe. can not wait.

  • I never comment even when I love things on this site, but this one is really awesome! I only used 1 tbs splenda, omitted the water, and added a splash of fresh cream instead of the whipped cream on top - and blended it with ice. I'm a Type 1 Diabetic and this only had 6 grams of carb - so awesome! - 6/6/12

  • Sadly, The "Splenda" has had some really bad wraps!! There are some major concerns in the using of this "sweetener". Google the brand name and make sure you read the negatives before extolling the "positives" . Dave - 5/10/11

  • This is awesome! I'm Vietnamese and we make a really good iced coffee but it uses condensed milk which has a lot of calories so this is a nice substitute. I couldn't find unsweetened almond milk so I just used regular but it was only 20 cals more. I also deleted the syrup bc I found it unnecessary. - 1/26/11
