It's that most wonderful time of the year! I don't know about you, but my house is overflowing with kids and extended family and holiday baking. Being a teacher, every day at school is filled with sweet treats in the staff room and my amazing students bringing me little holiday goodies. And I love it all! But it's a tough time of year when you're trying to keep sugar under control and you still want to indulge in some holiday fun and cheer.
Don't worry, I've got you covered with my luxurious salted caramel mocha. It looks and tastes incredible and goes really well next to a roaring fire with your favourite holiday movie on the TV. Avoid the sugar rush and whip up this sweet cheat for you and your loved ones.
Ingredients for each mocha:
2 tablespoons Sweet Cheat Hot Chocolate Mix
3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
1/4 cup steamed or frothed milk
1 drop caramel extract
1/2 cup whipping cream whipped with 1/2 teaspoon of Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit (or to taste)*
Sea Salt for sprinkling
*this will make enough whipped cream for several mochas!
Place 2 tablespoons of Sweet Cheat Hot Chocolate in a mug
Add 3/4 cup strong coffee and use a whisk or fork to blend the Hot Chocolate mix and coffee together.
Add 1/4 cup of steamed milk, one drop of caramel extract, and mix. Top mocha with a dollop of whipped cream sweetened with Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit to taste, and sprinkle with sea salt.
Enjoy... and try not to be like me and drink it all standing up! This one is definitely best enjoyed on the couch, with your feet up, watching the snow fall outside. Happy holidays everyone!
