What exactly is “Jamocha?”

14 Aug

Frankly, I’m not 100% sure. I’m guessing the word is a combo of Java and Mocha. Here is how Arby’s succinctly describes it — they introduced the shake nearly 50 years ago:

An Arby’s original that’s as delicious now as it was in 1964. Thick and creamy ice cream blended with the perfect combination of chocolate and coffee flavors.

I can say that this beverage was way ahead of its time. Arby’s introduced this flavor decades before Starbuck’s popularized the now omnipresent frappucino. Make your own Jamocha Shake at home — here is a recipe that should work pretty well for you:

Arby’s Jamocha Shake

1 cup cold coffee
1 cup low-fat (2%) milk
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 cups vanilla ice cream (we suggest you use Breyer’s)
3 tablespoons Hershey’s chocolate syrup

1. Combine the coffee, milk, and sugar in a blender and
mix on medium speed for 15 seconds to dissolve the sugar.

2. Add ice cream, and chocolate syrup then blend on high
speed until smooth and creamy. Stop blender and stir mixture
with a spoon if necessary to help blend ingredients.

3. Pour drink into two 16-ounce glasses.

Makes 2 large drinks.
