It has only 2 g fat, 4 g carbs, and about 1 g protein. And if anyone is counting, this low carb iced mocha recipe is a total of 25 calories. However, it is not limited in taste! The taste is rich and satisfying.
This low carb iced mocha recipe include only a few basic ingredients including: unsweetened almond milk, sugar-free vanilla syrup, 1850 Folger’s Coffee, and cacao powder. To make the low carb coffee drink, I used a large coffee mug, a coffee bean ice tray, a measuring cup, and a measuring spoon set.
I chose to use an unsweetened almond milk because to me it makes a creamier cup of coffee than unsweetened coconut milk. Since coffee and cacao powder are both naturally bitter, I added a hint of vanilla to make all the flavors come together.

I will address a few things regarding this low carb iced mocha recipe. A glass measuring cup has a nice easy-to-pour spout, so it will make the ice making process go smoothly. I used all of the ice cubes in my drink, since I only added 1 teaspoon of sugar-free vanilla syrup to the mixture during preparation. So, I ended up with a nice and rich-colored dark chocolate coffee drink. The taste was just right to me! It was really sweet & only semi-bitter, but energizing and delicious.
However, if you are new to being on a low carb diet, you may prefer a sweeter taste. Simply add more sugar-free vanilla syrup.
That’s it for now. Give this low carb iced mocha recipe a try and let me know what you think.
