This frothy hot mochaccino is perfect for a winter's morning.


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tbsp instant coffee, (decaffeinated is fine)

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3 cups milk

  • 1 cup evaporated milk, (or 10% cream)


  • In a medium saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder, sugar, instant coffee and vanilla. Add the water, and stir until it's smooth and lump-free. Now pour in the milk and the evaporated milk, whisk until smooth, and heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until it's hot - but don't let it boil.

  • Now for the frothy part. Working with about half of the hot chocolate at a time, pour into a blender and blend until it's foamy. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Be careful not to overfill the blender - this stuff seems to expand when you whip it.
