Raise your hand if you had coffee this morning!
This morning I had this:
With a side ‘o this:
Fuel for the road – I’m off to DC! (Work-related, but I love a trip.)
Last night’s coffee was a bit more fun.
Despite the fact that I am
unrealistically optimistic the spring-like weather will be here to stay, the evening called for a warm beverage.
A kahlua-laced mocha. It was a looooong day.
- 1/2 cup strong coffee
- 1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
- 1 T good-quality cocoa powder
- Shot of Kahlua
Brew 1/2 a cup of strong coffee (I used a vanilla-flavored instant coffee – VIA). Pour into coffee cup, filling half way.
In a small sauce pan, whisk together the milk and cocoa. Heat over medium-high heat until simmering (NOT boiling). It will look foamy.
Pour the milk mixture over your coffee, add your shot of Kahlua, give a quick stir, and enjoy!
Do you have a favorite “treat” drink?
I’m a fan of the night cap. Especially when I remember to make it with decaf.
