The Mocha Girls are an all-female singing and dancing group from the Philippines. The current line-up consists of members Mocha Uson (the group's lead vocalist and original member), Mae Dela Cerna (formerly of the EB Babes), Franz Fainsan, Georgina Knight, Seika Hashizume and Jhane Santiaguel. The Mocha Girls have released four albums: A Taste of Mocha (2006), Mocha (2007), Deliciosa (2008), and Pinay Ako (2012), and have sold 30,000 album units in the Philippines.

The Mocha Girls rose to fame partly due to lead vocalist Mocha Uson's adult-themed antics and her online blog that specializes in offering sex advice to couples. The Mocha Girls are considered as "The Hottest Sing and Dance Group in the Philippines" and are "The 3rd Best Selling Female Group of All Time in the Philippines" behind the Sexbomb Girls and Aegis.

Formed in 2006, the original members were Mocha Uson, Hershey de las Alas, Heart de Guzman, Grace Oracion and Bez Lacanlale. In early 2010, the four members separated from Uson to form their own group, Girlz Ink. This led to the addition of new members Mae Dela Cerna and Jhane Santiaguel, later followed by the arrival of Yumi Ociman, and then Aura Balington. After Santaguiel left the group, she was replaced by Franz Fainsan in 2011.

In 2012, Chloe Recto joined, shortly followed by the departure of Balington, bringing the group back down to five members; Mocha Uson still remaining as the group's leader and only original member. In 2013, Recto left the group due to reasons surrounding work commitments. Two new members were officially added to the group in April 2013, Seika Hashizume and Georgina Knight. On April 30, 2013, it was announced that Hashizume was no longer part of the Mocha Girls, due to personal reasons which affected work commitments. On July 9, 2013, Seika Hashizume was officially reinstated as a member of the Mocha Girls. On July 28, 2013, it was announced that Yumi Ociman was no longer part of the group, due to violating the "No. 1 rule" of Mocha Girls which is all members are not allowed to be in a relationship or simply, "no boyfriend". After being given the choice, she chose her boyfriend over Mocha Girls. On September 21, 2013, Jhane Santiaguel was reinstated as member of Mocha Girls after leaving her partner to concentrate on her career.
