Ingredients You’ll Need:

  1. Freshly brewed coffee or espresso
  2. Fresh or frozen strawberries
  3. Cream cheese or strawberry-flavored cream cheese
  4. Milk or non-dairy alternative
  5. Granulated sugar or sweetener of choice
  6. Whipped cream (optional)
  7. Crushed graham crackers (for garnish, optional)

 

Steps to Create Your Strawberry Cheesecake Mocha:

1. Prepare the Strawberry Puree: Begin by making a luscious strawberry puree. In a blender or food processor, blend fresh or thawed frozen strawberries until smooth. If desired, add a touch of granulated sugar to sweeten the puree, depending on the natural sweetness of the strawberries. Set the puree aside.

2. Blend the Cheesecake Mix: In a separate bowl, combine softened cream cheese or strawberry-flavored cream cheese with a splash of milk or non-dairy alternative. Use a hand mixer or blender to blend the mixture until smooth and creamy. Add a teaspoon of sugar or sweetener to enhance the sweetness, adjusting to your taste preferences.

3. Brew Your Coffee or Espresso: Prepare a strong cup of coffee or espresso using your preferred brewing method. For an espresso-based Strawberry Cheesecake Mocha, aim for a double shot of espresso.

4. Assemble Your Mocha: In a heatproof mug or glass, layer the elements to create your delightful mocha:

  • Start with a spoonful of the prepared cheesecake mix at the bottom of the mug.
  • Add a generous dollop of the strawberry puree on top of the cheesecake mix.
  • Pour the freshly brewed coffee or espresso over the strawberry and cheesecake layers.

5. Mix and Garnish: Gently stir the layers together to blend the flavors. Top your Strawberry Cheesecake Mocha with a swirl of whipped cream for added decadence. For an extra touch of authenticity, sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top as a cheesecake-inspired garnish.

6. Enjoy Your Homemade Creation: Sip and savor the delightful harmony of creamy cheesecake, luscious strawberries, and rich coffee flavors in every sip of your Strawberry Cheesecake Mocha.

 

Tips for Personalization:

  • Experiment with the ratio of cheesecake mix, strawberry puree, and coffee to suit your taste preferences.
  • Adjust sweetness levels by adding more or less sugar, depending on the sweetness of the strawberries and cream cheese.
  • For a cold version, let the coffee cool before assembling with ice for an iced Strawberry Cheesecake Mocha.
