|I love to start my latte in this beautiful pour-over combo made by a local artisan.|
Here's a treat that a friend introduced me to a long time ago. When I became more conscious of what I was eating, I put it aside with regrets. But now I've adapted it to fit into a healthy diet. Well, at least a little better!
Think Hot Mocha Cinnamon Hazelnut Latte topped with Whipped Cream!
Organic coffee, I prefer hazelnut.
Cream from raw milk (whipped but not sweetened) or homemade marshmallows)
cinnamon powder or a cinnamon stick
organic chocolate shavings (in a pinch use organic chocolate chips)
Brew coffee a little on the strong side
add cream if you like
Top with a dollop of whipped cream (or homemade marshmallows!)
Shave chocolate over the top
Sprinkle with cinnamon or add a cinnamon stick and top with a cherry.
Sweeten with a little, tiny pinch of stevia, if desired.
Enjoy with a piece of almond biscotti!
The sky's the limit for flavorings and you can always add a healthy version of coffee syrups or toppings to make special treats. Move over Starbucks. We're making our own latte at home!
This recipe is a nice surprise if you're caught by company without anything on hand to offer them. It looks like you fussed but only you know the truth!
