Mocha-Almond Latte Freeze

Yield 1 serving (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)
Any coffee will work for this beverage, but a darker French roast coffee has a rich, strong flavor that pairs nicely with chocolate. The recipe makes more double-strength coffee than you need; freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays for iced coffee drinks (or use leftover coffee in Café au Lait Chiffon Pie). Once frozen, coffee cubes can be stored in zip-top plastic bags for up to three months.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup freshly ground French roast coffee
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon canned refrigerated light whipped cream (such as Reddi-wip)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sliced almonds, toasted
