Cinnamon Cafe Mocha

As I have said before, I typically enjoy my coffee black and bold.

Although, lately my poor belly seems to need a buffer… Which leads me to testing out new additions to my boring black coffee. (You are still my true love, don’t worry!)

Ingredients:

Hot Brewed coffee (about 1 cup)

1/4 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 tsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp unsweetened cocao powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Optional:  One tsp maple syrup for sweetness (I prefer mine without)

MAKE IT:

Start with your base of hot black coffee (fill your mug about 3/4 full)

In a high speed blender, combine almond milk, cinnamon, cocoa powder, coconut oil and maple syrup.  Blend on high for a few minutes until steaming and frothy.

If you are not using a Vitamix, you may need to heat the almond milk in the microwave for a little bit before blending.

(The Vitamix will actually warm up the mixture if blended long enough)

Pour the blended almond milk into your coffee and enjoy!  Mmmmmm.

I hope you enjoy this healthy spin on my old fave!
