I Love Drinking Mocha Lattes In The Morning

What is the best thing about Fall? Fall coffee drinks!

What is the best thing about Winter? Winter coffee drinks!

I am a coffee addict. IF my morning ever starts out without a cup, don’t talk to me. And I will risk being late to anything *anything!* just so I can have that last drop of coffee.

Doctor told me to cut down on caffeine while I was pregnant last year. That sucked. I limited myself to one cup in the morning. But the strong kind. Turkish Coffee. One cup and you’re good to go for a few hours.

What happens after the few hours? You find a way to make your own Decaf gourmet coffee just so you can enjoy that coffee taste.

These Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Lattes Are A Staple

I loaded up on these Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Lattes while I was pregnant. I mean looooaded. I would make one every day at around 3 pm. Decaf. And Skinny. I was already bursting at the seems, so I opted for a lighter version.

When I first set out to make one I of course went to Google, but I didn’t like what turned up; Peppermint extract. What? Where do you get peppermint extract? It took me 2 years to find lemon extract! No, I don’t live in BFE,  but seems like vanilla extract is the only thing we are extracting out here.

So the next best thing? I bought some crushed peppermint and hoped that it would melt in the steamy hot milk! It worked!

If you ask me, and I’m not biased at all, I think my Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Latte rocks! I’m having one right now as we speak. Errrr, write! read!

    PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE This is pure delight for your taste buds.
    great flavour

  4. Kristy says:

    my milk doesn’t foam, at least I didn’t see it foam, does it stay foamed like a latte? Am I doing something wrong…..and of course the kids ate all of the whipped cream! Still tastes delish!

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      Hi Kristy!! When you put the milk in the microwave for the second time, keep an eye on it as the foam rises up. When it gets close to the rim, take it out and pour it into the coffee cup. You can also try to stir it vigorously (or even whisk it) right before pouring it in. Hope this helps! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!

    I love that you didn’t use peppermint extract in these. I’m having the same problem with eggnog flavored things this year–they don’t actually contain eggnog! Anyway, I just got a latte machine and this looks like a perfect recipe for it 🙂
