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.
- 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*
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!
