When it comes to coffee, the sweeter the better for me! Coffee is like dessert in a cup to me, and easily so, the calories can get right up there! I don’t mind the occasional coffee shop splurge, but for a more realistic lifestyle, I prefer to make my own coffee at home, that way I can control the ingredients and limit the calorie amount a bit!
One of my favorite guilty pleasures is a mochaccino latte! The more chocolatey, the better! This is my go-to coffee recipe to make at home. It has a smooth and creamy chocolatey texture and best of all I can make it in minutes. There’s no need to spend $6 per cup or wait in the line at the drive-thru to get the perfect blend of chocolate and coffee!
