1 shot of espresso or 1/4 cup very strong coffee

3 teaspoons of cocoa powder OR  dark chocolate shavings

1 cup of cold milk

Whipped cream to finish

3. Add the cold milk to the chocolate mix and stir well to combine.

4. Fill a large glass with ice and add the chocolate milk then top with the coffee and stir well.
