The first drink I ever fell in love with at Starbucks was the Mocha. That was over ten years ago, but even now if I splurge on coffee, 90% of the time, I will order the Mocha. Two of my favorite things in the world, chocolate and coffee combined into one. Yes, please!
I started making my own version at home. It is much more economical, convenient, and I get to control the ingredients.
This has become a favorite in my house. My forever friends that come visit always ask for it. It’s so simple, and I actually prefer it to the Starbucks Mocha (sorry Starbucks!).
Homemade Mocha Coffee
- 8 ounces of fresh brewed organic coffee
- 2 1/2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa
- 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
Combine your coconut sugar and cocoa in your favorite mug. Add heavy cream and stir until a thick cream forms. Pour in coffee slowly while stirring to combine well. Now go sit somewhere in your cozy socks and enjoy!
Variation: to make this “clean” use organic cocoa* and organic whipping cream. This Mocha already contains no refined sugar so it doesn’t “drop me” the way a regular does.
