The weather in Vancouver is incredible. It’s hot during the day and then reaches that really comfortable thin sweater weather during the night. I’m blogging from home at the moment- it’s 7 pm right now and the weather is fantastic. In fact, I’m currently sipping on today’s recipe post while blogging about it at the same time. This doesn’t happen too often.
I was craving some coffee this afternoon but was tired of having the same old latte/ cappuccino. I decided to spice things up and make a Café Mocha- but the easy way with some Tim Horton’s hot choco mix (because I’m Canadian, duh).
If you’re getting tired of the same coffee routine, then try giving this recipe a quick try. You probably have all the ingredients on hand already anyways! This Café Mocha is delicious- just imagine a hot chocolate with some espresso in it. I don’t think you need any more convincing.
Now, I used my Lavazza/Keurig espresso maker but you can use whatever you have on hand. If you’re looking to get an affordable coffee maker , I have some friends that run a website helping people find some (click on the hyperlink).
2 shots of espresso
2 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix
½ cup of milk
Directions: Brew two shots of espresso using your espresso machine. Add in ½ a cup of hot milk and then two tablespoons of hot chocolate. Add on top a dollop of whipped cream if you’re feeling fancy ( I wasn’t).
