Homemade Frozen Mocha
I got to check out the brand new Blendtec Designer 725 blender recently and shared my recipe for Baby Lasagna. Last week I shared my recipe for a really delicious Vegan Creamy Broccoli soup made with The Blendtec Designer 725. This week I wanted to show off its ability to crush ice for frozen drinks with a recipe for Frozen Mocha.
The Designer 725 features patented blunt safety blades for safer user and cleaning but thanks to the 1725 watt, 3.4 peak horsepower motor it is able to quickly blend even ice.
Even… delicious ice cubes made from freshly brewed coffee. Sometimes I feel like I can never get enough coffee into my day and Frozen Mocha’s are a wonderful way to get an extra one in during the summer.
Thanks to my Blendtec blender I can whip up a homemade frozen mocha whenever I want in less time than it would take to hop over to my local coffee shop and with similar tasting results.
I just add any leftover coffee from the pot to an ice cube tray and then when I want a frozen coffee beverage I can use them rather than watering down hot coffee with ice cube trays made from water.

White Christmas Mojito.
Because all Christmases should be white.
Or at least that’s my thinking. I’ll never fully understand you guys out there who travel to warm places for the holidays, that’s just not me. I am all about the very snowy white Christmas, and I am pretty excited because as I type this, it’s snowing! Yeah! What’s kind of odd is that while today’s drink is very white and festive, it’s actually the most tropical of all the Christmas Drink Saturday drinks yet. Guys, say hello to this creamy coconut white Christmas mojito!
…pomegranate arils (for topping – because you know I love a good garnish!)
I’m just going to put it out there that in order to love this drink, you have to love coconut because this is a very coconutty drink. I’m personally all about coconut, so the more the merrier! This drink is simple as can be, and perfect for all your holiday parties. When I made the Pomegranate Palomas a few weeks ago a lot of you were asking for the measurements to make a large batch, so today I’m giving both the measurements for a single drink and a pitcher. Yup! Just trying to make your holidays a littler easier…and apparently a little boozier too!
Here’s my quick run-down of this white Christmas mojito. This drink is creamy, fizzy and full of yummy coconut and lime flavors, basically it’s my dream drink, I just LOVE how festive and EASY it is. My brother Brendan and his girlfriend Lyndsie rolled into town Thursday night, just in time for the 5 o’clock cocktail hour, so these were their cocktail of the day. They of course loved them 1) they pretty much love anything with a little rum and 2) they are both coconut loving people…especially after their trip to Thailand. <–jealous.
It was snowing really hard (it has been all week), so these were the perfect thing to cap off a bitter cold night off. A little tropicalness in the middle of a freezing cold snowy night! Alright, so Christmas Drink Saturday #4 is a wrap…any guesses what #5 and #6 are going to be? Hint, one plays off some inspiration from my hometown Cleveland, Ohio, and the other is going to be Santa’s bestest friend. Get excited!
