Mocha-Almond Latte Freeze

Mocha-Almond Latte Freeze

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.
