I'm not a big fan of Almond Joys. Let's just put that out there.
I am a big fan of my husband's and he loves Almond Joys. So as with pretty much all the foods he loves (and because I put up with him), I've hoarded recipes to make for him. This was one I figured he would love because it combines Almond Joys with one of his all-time favorite things in the whole wide world: coffee.
Even though I am not the biggest fan of Almond Joys, I quite enjoyed this little cold coffee treat. I think that the chocolate and coconut worked together well and nothing was too overpowering :) And of course it got Nick's seal of approval!
What you need:
- Coffee ice cubes
- Equal parts coconut milk and cow's milk
- 1 tsp. cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. coconut extract
- 1/8 tsp. almond extract
- Sugar, to taste
- Chocolate syrup
- Whipped cream
- Sweetened shredded coconut
- Blend together coffee cubes, milks (start with 1/4 cup each), cocoa powder, extracts, and sugar. Add more milks and more sugar until the consistency and sweetness you want is reached. I usually use 1/2 a tray of ice cubes to start out with. I add more until I get the amount of drink I want!
- Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream, coconut, and chocolate syrup.
