Swiss Mocha Coffee Mix

  • 1/2 cup instant coffee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup instant dry milk powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 cup vanilla flavored instant pudding mix (optional, but very good)

Measure all of the ingredients into a clean, dry bowl. Use a fork to combine everything evenly. If you are ambitious, you can powder everything in a blender. I don’t always do this because I am lazy.¬†You do get really impressive results from it though, and it is easier to do than one would expect. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or a pretty jar.

To Prepare: Measure 3 or 4 tablespoons into a coffee cup. Fill it up with hot water (about 3/4 cup) and stir to dissolve.

This is a very sweet and chocolaty coffee. It is almost as good as hot chocolate for curling up with on a cold winter night. If you decide to make it a bed time snack, then you might want to use decaffeinated instant coffee, instead of regular. The vanilla pudding mix makes your homemade mix dissolve better in water. It also gives a pleasant vanilla flavor to the coffee that marries perfectly with the rich chocolate.

If you liked this inexpensive beverage mix, you may also want to give my french vanilla coffee mix recipe a try. It’s just as yummy, but without the chocolate flavor.

    I make this every morning for my husband in the fall and winter. He loves it and we save much money and time not going to the coffee stands and shops!

    Do I use non-fat milk powder for this or whole milk powder? If I use whole milk powder will it influence the taste in a bad way?

      Hi Floris,
      I use both non-fat and whole, depending on what I have on hand. There is a slight difference in taste, but neither will make the mix taste bad. It all depends on what type of milk you’re used to drinking.

        I made the mix and it’s pretty good indeed! Normally I do not like coffee very much, but the milk and the chocolate make it quite yummy. Thanks!
