Since I have so many DIY ideas, crafts and converted recipes I decided to create a smaller site and Twitter account to share those on. I’m no longer posting recipes and such here and I’ll be doing updates towards Nano and during November on that blog.
I love mocha lattes from Starbucks and finally found a recipe for it a while back. It tastes just as good as the ones from there.I was able to make it Gluten/Dairy/Soy free
Fresh brewed coffee
Sweetened Almond milk
Brew your coffee then mix a spoon of cocoa powder, 2 spoons of sugar and add milk to your preference.
The alternative I found was to use chocolate almond milk and it works almost as well (not as good, but still good)
If you don’t need it to be dairy free, add some whipped cream on top and toss in a few df/gf/sf Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips on top.
I know this is early, but the coffee post made me think of it.
I found a great recipe for gf/df Pumpkin Spice that tasted as good as any you’d get professionally. I played with it and tweeked it til I found a great combo.
1 tsp Pumpkin (canned or pureed)
sprinkle cinnamon, ginger or the pumpkin pie mix
1 tsp sugar
add in as much sweetened almond milk as you want (or instead of cocoa powder and sugar, add sweetened almond milk)
Brew your coffee as normal
Mix the pumpkin, spices, and sugar together
Add the pumpkin mix to the coffee, add in milk and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
The pureed pumpkin doesn’t always mix in fully with the coffee (sometimes it does) so most of the time, it’ll be a weird texture but it tastes just as good- has a lot less calories and is allergy friendly.
