Maple, mocha, and coffee … this simple latte combines three of my favorite flavors into a rich, not-to-sweet, cup of cocoa coffee magic. As an added bonus, this powerful combination is not only flavor packed, it is also chock full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and antivirals which help your body feel great and fend off those pesky cool-weather sniffles. Hope you enjoy it!
Step 1: Add the following to your mug (I’ve used a 12-ounce glass in the picture.):
- 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- (Optional) 4 ounces milk or chocolate milk
Step 2: Fill your mug with freshly brewed coffee, stopping approximately 1/4th from the top if you wish to add milk. We recommend making this latte with a bold, rich dark roast such as Midnight Rebel coffee, or with a chocolate flavored coffee, such as Belgian Chocolate.
Step 3: Whisk your coffee mixture together until the maple and spices are fully integrated.
Step 4: (Optional) Add your milk or chocolate milk. If you are heating the milk, heat it only until it is warm to the touch. If you are frothing your milk, warm your milk before frothing it.
Step 5: Top whipped cream (optional) and sprinkled cocoa powder.
Step 6: Enjoy!
