How To Make iced mocha coffee

    *Note: When making this coffee beverage, I've also used a Decaf Instant Coffee, such as Maxwell House or Folgers. The chocolate syrup I use is Hershey's Lite Chocolate Syrup. Which has 50% Less Sugar, Carbs, & Calories than regular Hershey's Chocolate Syrup. Also, on occasions I have used 2 Tablespoons of Heavy Whipping Cream, plus 2 Tablespoons of 2% milk, instead of half-and-half cream.
