Mocktail Monday: Mock-Kahlua Float

Mocktail Monday for this week might fall into the dessert category...yes it's that decadent!  About 10 days ago I saw Heather Christo's Kahlua Float cocktail on Pinterest. I pinned it, of course, but I couldn't get the image out of my mind! Yes, it was that beautiful. 

My challenge was to make a drink equally delicious but without the alcohol. Ice cream, chocolate and coffee.... how could it not be delightful?

Mock-Kahlua Float: 

Serves 1

1 scoop espresso or coffee ice cream
1.5 ounce mock-kahlua (see below for recipe)
1/8 cup sparkling water
Melted dark chocolate for drizzling into glass (at least 60% cacao) 
A pinch Cacao or Cocoa powder for garnish


1.5 ounce espresso or very strong coffee
1/8 teaspoon cacao or cocoa powder
3-4 drops kahlua flavor - I used LorAnn Oils "Keoke Coffee" Kahlua-type flavor 

Candy Rim:

1 teaspoon light corn syrup
2 tablespoons chocolate jimmies

Heather Christo does an amazing job of showing how to rim the glass and construct her drink.  I won't even try to replicate.  Check out her site for step by step instructions - Kahlua Float

Whenever possible I try to add anti-oxidant packed super foods to my recipes.  Small doses are better than nothing!  I use Dagoba Organic Chocolate for my cacao powder. 

Cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than any food tested 

To our health!
