Kona Mocha Blended Ice Coffee Mix


Summer is the time to enjoy a cup of iced coffee. My kids’ favourite is Tim Horton’s Iced Capp Supreme. However, I would prefer a McD’s ice coffee simply for the lesser calories. Here is a comparison of nutritional value for a small serving of both of them:

Tim Horton’s Iced Capp Supreme
Calories: 250
Fat: 11g
Saturated fat: 6g
Trans fat: 0.4g
Cholesterol: 45mg
Sodium: 50mg

McDonald’s Iced Coffee
Calories: 110g
Fat: 6g
Saturated fat: 3.5g
Trans fat: 0.2g

Sodium: 35mg
Sugar: 15g

We bought this Kona Mocha Blended Iced Coffee Mix from Costco for about $8. It has become one of Nanzaro’s favourite home made drink in summer.

This is a fairly good iced blended coffee which has the creaminess that resembles Tim Horton’s Iced Capp.

Comparatively, it’s nutritional values is between McD’s Iced Coffee and Tim Horton’s Iced Capp Supreme. The only thing I’m concerned about this product is the sodium is quite high, not good for people with hyper tension.

Making the Kona Mocha Blended Ice Coffee is simple. You just need a blender, some ice and milk.

Nanzaro will always volunteer to make it as he always gets a cup for himself and share the other cup with his brother or father and leave the clean up for me :-(.

Here is the finished product, a creamy ice coffee for a hot summer day. You can make 17 servings of 473ml blender drinks from the tin of 1.36kg (48oz) of Kona Mocha Blended Ice Coffee Mix. That average to 25cents per cup serving, way much cheaper than Tim Horton’s small Iced Capp ($2.49)or McD’s small Iced Coffee ($1.39).

  2. I could never get in to iced coffee. But, my sister LOVES it. It’s the first thing she asked for after giving birth to my nephew (since she couldn’t have caffeine for 9mo)! I’ll have to pick that up for her from Costco.

  3. Hi Suanne,

    Forgot to factor in the cost of milk! Just Kidding. Still, it looks great; too bad it has too much sugar per serving (I have personal issues with sugar).
