Recipe of the Month: Raspberry Chocolate Dreamsicle

Written by Cafe Campesino on Aug 6, 2010 in NEWSLETTER, Recipes |


This smoothie-like concoction will satisfy your sweet tooth and cool you off all at once.  For best flavor, you will want to use cold brew espresso for this drink.  Our recipe for cold brew* follows the tasty treat that is this month’s “make it at home” recipe:

How to make a 16 oz. Raspberry Chocolate Dreamsicle:

You will need a blender for this recipe. Combine the following ingredients in the blender:

2 oz. of fair trade, organic chocolate syrup
1 cup of ice
2 cups of fresh raspberries
2 oz. of your cold-brew espresso
8 oz. or less of cold milk
Enjoy with or without a straw

*Prepare your cold brew by mixing a 1/2 gallon of cold water with a 1/2 pound of coarse ground coffee in a gallon sized container. Allow the concoction to sit at room temperature for eight to ten hours. After the coffee has been allowed to sit, pour the mixture through a tight-meshed strainer. This will separate the coffee grounds from the espresso. Pour your strained, cold brewed coffee into a container of your choice and refrigerate. This recipe yields 8 cups and will remain fresh in cold storage for several days. To make a larger or smaller batch, simply adjust the recipe using 1 ounce of coffee per 8oz. of cold water as your ratio. Tip: Smaller batches can be made easily in a French press.
