Quick Pick-me-up

This is what I call my Poor Man's Iced Mocha. It's easy to make at home if you're in need of a refreshing caffeine boost and don't want to run out and spend four bucks on one at Starbucks

3 heaping spoonfuls of Ovaltine (I like the Chocolate Malt)
1 heaping spoonful of instant coffee (I like Nescafe)
enough milk (choose your fat content) to fill a tall drinking glass

Put it all in a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes and shake it up real good to get it super cold; strain into drinking glass, and voila! Probably fattening, but delish, and it gives a nice mid-afternoon kick in the butt.

That sounds heavenly!!! I love these things called Mocha Joe's at Burger King... coffee, chocolate, and shake mix. Soooooo bad for you. I haven't had one in ages. But this concoction of yours doesn't actually sound terribly unhealthy for a treat!!

that's my kind of drink :) cheap haha. i love s-bux, but can only go every once in a while or when my MIL sends me a gift card (she sends them like every other month, lol...we just got our own starbucks like a couple years ago haha)...

i have to have decaf, but i bought a stovetop espresso maker thingy...i make strong decaf coffee and mix w/ nestle syrup and a drop of mint extract. YUM
