    Hi Kali, sorry I just saw this and it's late.... the coffee is just there for flavor, if you don't want the caffeine you could do decaf or strong plain or even mint herbal tea, maybe, that sounds like a good one, mint in with the mocha from the hersheys coco would be a good additive.... or there's always bananas, orange juice (or orange oil) if you don't want the sugar but want the taste.... coconut flavoring oil, or even raspberry oil all of these oils can be found at hobby lobby in the candy making section. Oils don't take as many drops because they are pure , distinct flavoring , not like the extracts which take quite a bit more to get same strength flavor.
    But it can be omitted altogether..... the coco and the avocado work well on their own in this too.
    If using just milk , add a bit of vanilla to help round out the flavors and add more stevia or whatever as needed since the cocoa is unsweetened ....
