Salted Caramel Mocha Java…Such a fancy name for a simple, yet delicious cup of joe!
I enjoy coffee. Short and simple. I’m not one of those people that have to have coffee first thing every morning or else I get cranky with a headache. To be honest, I didn’t really drink coffee until after my college days. As far as college, it was the “cool” thing to buy a cappuccino before morning classes…yes all that sugar went soaring through my bloodstream with great pleasure. Can you imagine what it was doing to my body? I didn’t think about it cause I was all about having fun with friends. My friend, Steph, who lived right across the hall from me in the girls dorm, can vouch for all those cappuccino stops. Uugh!!
I haven’t had a cappuccino for a very very long time, but before THM I loved my sugar-filled flavored coffee creamer. As a matter of fact, when I started drinking coffee, the cup was filled with half creamer, half coffee (isn’t that terrible?!!…I just told on myself). I told everyone that I liked coffee, but HAD to have flavored creamer. Now did that mean I really liked coffee?? Hmm!
Now a days I don’t have to have flavored creamer. My “normal” cup of coffee normally consists of collagen, stevia and a touch of half n half (sometimes MCT oil too). I like to make special hot drinks once in a while for variety. If you haven’t tried my Sweet Cinnamon Latte yet, I guarantee you’ll love it…and you won’t even miss the creamer.
I’ve been working on a “chocolaty” flavored coffee for a while now. When I added some cocoa, caramel extract and salt to my cup of coffee, I knew I had come up with another delightful drink.
I would love to know what you think of this recipe. Comment below with your results!!
