Mocha Crush

Looking for a little pick me up but wanting something more than black coffee, I made an espresso, and chilled it. Doing that reminded me of those mocha frappuccino drinks you can buy, which reminds me of dessert, which sounded really good to me!
Mocha Crush

1/2 cup of espresso (chilled)
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
pinch of cinnamon
1 1/4 cup of ice
shaved dark chocolate
whipped cream (optional)
chocolate syrup (optional)

Blend the espresso, milk, cinnamon, and ice in a blender.
Pour into a glass and top with shaved chocolate.
For a full on decadent dessert, top with whipped cream and finish with chocolate syrup.
Note: I found an organic sweetened condensed milk in a squeeze container at Trader Joe's. It is so nice not to have to deal with leftovers from a can, just use as needed.
