Food Fridays: Low calorie cashew mexican mocha


Food Friday is back...BOOM!!

Okay, okay, I know this is technically a drink but with food comes drinks and drinks, food plus... COFFEE!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a coffee addict. Sorry, but for real I am not sorry, coffee is the nectar of the gods. I have recently been trying to find areas in my life that I can cut out some excess calories. Don't get me wrong, if someone hands me a delicious flavored iced latte... I will drink it, and drink it fast; but when I found that a cup of this Cashew milk was only 90 calories I was hooked! Since I have picked up Silk chocolate cashew milk, I had constantly thought it would be delicious in coffee. 

I was right, so here is a low calorie option to a Mexican mocha:
(P.S. Its super quick because we all know, No talky before coffee)



Ingredients:


  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup of any brand of chocolate Cashew milk (I used Silk)
  • Your coffee of choice, I used a K-cup and made my Kicking Horse coffee in the Keurig
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 2 Dashes of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Dash of Cayenne Pepper ( I mean a tiny bit unless you want it spicyyyyyy)
  • Optional: Some creamer if you want it to turn out thicker. When I use creamer I use Trader Joe's Coconut Creamer
  • Milk frother, I picked mine up at Cost Plus but if you don't have one no worries.

Step 1: Brew your cup of coffee into your mug or pour yourself a cup of coffee a little over half full.



Step 2: In a separate microwavable mug combine 1 dash of cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne pepper and cashew milk. Heat for 45 seconds or until hot.


Step 3: Once hot, if you have a frother use it until the milk becomes a little frothy. If you don't have one no worries it will taste just as good.


Step 4: Combine all ingredients into the mug with the coffee, stir and dash with cinnamon, see super easy.
 ENJOY!



But wait, there's more!!! (God I love watching those infomercials.)

"What if its super hot out and I don't want hot coffee because then I will melt and probably die!?"

Dude, relax I got you... Make it iced! *head explosion* 

Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic but this drink tastes SO good iced! I used some coffee that I had in the fridge to make this. Just add all the ingredient directly into your cup I used a dash of creamer in mine, add some ice and heaven.
Now you can double enjoy!
