Whipped Vanilla Mocha Java

DD #1 has an affinity for coffee. Just set aside that fact that she is 13. She thinks she can do better with her homeschool work if she 'just has coffee'. *motherly eyeroll inserted here* She has certain drinks she orders at Borders, Starbucks and even at our local coffee shop. They know her by NAME there. She plans to work there when she turns 14 in 2 weeks. That remains to be seen. Can kids work at 14? *shock* Anyway, this morning she attempted to make some cold concoction, like she orders at places. It was DELICIOUS! (pictured ------>) I asked her for a recipe (as a joke). She gave me one! So I'm sharing with you...

Whipped Vanilla Mocha Java

2 cups strong fresh brewed coffee

1 cup milk, 2% cold

3 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. vanilla syrup


Pour over cup of ice

Top with whip cream

If if makes you feel any better, for his 12th birthday, Jordan asked for a coffee maker for his room. Grandma caved; at least he always makes coffee for me!
