Homemade ~ The Lazy Cheap Iced Mocha

Go to Aldi and buy a box of 10 instant hot chocolate packets for $1.19 (that's basically $0.12 per packet).

It's not poorganic because the ingredient list is long with the 2nd ingredient being corn syrup.  If you must have a poorganic mocha then go here.

Make an espresso with this handy dandy Italian coffee maker.


  • 2 Tablespoons of ground espresso
  • It should make 1/2 cup of espresso

It's so simple, just fill the base with water, add espresso in the little holder and set it to medium heat until the espresso bubbles through. 


  • 1/2 cup espresso
  • 1 packet of instant hot chocolate
  • 1 cup of milk
For the cost conscience I estimate this to be $0.90 which sure beats Dunkin Donuts for $3.28 and Starbucks for $4.28!!
