We’ve been in our new city for a few weeks now and I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of my new routine. Only, I have yet to find new childcare for John and so I have to entertain him all day, everyday while still trying to develop and write recipes just as I have before. Plus I’m 25 weeks pregnant.

All of this adds up to the fact that I am tired all the time. Coffee to the rescue!

These mocha coffee coolers are what’s going to get me through the summer. Strong coffee, half and half (or milk) and chocolate syrup are blended together with a little ice and served over more ice. It’s cold, frothy, sweet and guaranteed to perk you/me up.

Cheers to making it through another week. Happy Friday, friends!
