Thank you to the Tastemakers Foodbuzz program with Godiva coffee for allowing me to sample two different types of Godiva coffee - Chocolate Truffle and Hazelnut Creme.
Godiva and Tastemakers asked me to come up with an iced coffee drink recipe. I love coffee, though I only drink it every so often. However, I can't drink a cup of hot coffee on a hot summer's day, so this was perfect for me. :)
The first thing of thought of when I saw the Chocolate Truffle flavor was 'strawberries'. Who doesn't love chocolate and strawberries? The recipe I came up with is very simple and refreshing. It has the delicious flavor of the coffee with the underlying tastes of strawberries and bananas. I think it's a perfect hot morning pick-me-up!
Instead of using the coffee in liquid form, I decided to freeze it in ice cube trays. This way, I wasn't watering down the flavors with ice. Use as much or as little sugar as you'd like. I tried it without the sugar addition, but I thought it needed just a bit of sweetness - the strawberries and banana didn't add quite enough. I hope you enjoy! After I enjoyed this drink, I thought that it might be a good addition to add just a bit of vanilla yogurt, to smooth it out. :)
