Spicy Mocha

Who doesn’t love chocolate and spice? I know I certainly love this spicy mocha as it’s an indulgent treat with that nice bit of caffeine to get you going. My spicy mocha is similar to a Mexican hot chocolate, but with a couple twists that make it not only healthy but enjoyable.

Ingredients

  • coffee from a 2 c moka pot or percolator
  • 1 c almond milk*
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar or sweetener of choice*
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon*
  • 2 shakes cayenne*
  • 2 chakes of alspice*
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla powder*
  • 1 shake of ginger powder*

Recipe

Brew your coffee in the percolator. Warm up your milk in the microwave for about 2 minutes. When it’s done, froth it in the french press as I have explained in a prior post.

Mix your spices, sugar, and cacao together in your mug and add just a little coffee. Mix until it forms a smooth paste, now add the rest of your coffee and stir to combine.

Pour in your milk, and it’s ready to sip on. Enjoy!

*Use whatever spices you have and that make you happy! Also, use whatever milk you like; oat milk would be splendid in this. Sweetener is optional although I do recommend it as the cacao powder contains no sweetener. You could also do this iced!
