This classic chocolate mocha coffee is delicious, comforting and comes together in no time.
Hi guys and welcome back! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes for…homemade mocha coffee!!
Normally, cafe mocha is an espresso based drink. But, you CAN also use regular coffee.
In fact in this version, you can use anything you like: espresso or drip coffee. Cocoa powder, chocolate sauce, melted chocolate chips or Nutella…
I prefer to use cocoa powder, because it gives that deep chocolaty flavor and extra creaminess. Plus, I believe it’s healthier than processed chocolate sauces. No artificial colors or flavors. No HFCS. Just good old cocoa powder, coffee and milk.
Let me show you how easy it is…
prep time: 5 min; 1 serving (8 ounces)
MOCHA RECIPE I
1/2 cup strong black coffee
1/2 cup hot milk
1 tsp cocoa + 1/2 tsp sugar, or 2 tbsp chocolate sauce
sugar to taste
whipped cream for garnish, optional
Put cocoa & sugar in a cup. Add a little hot water and stir until a creamy paste forms. Add coffee, hot milk and enough sugar to achieve the level of sweetness you like. Stir it all up. Done! garnish with whipped cream. When using chocolate sauce, start with coffee. Then, add 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce, hot milk and sugar to taste. Stir well and garnish.
MOCHA RECIPE II (espresso)
1 double espresso shot (2 oz)
1 tsp quality cocoa powder + 1/2 tsp sugar, or 2 tbsp chocolate sauce
6 oz steamed milk
Put cocoa & sugar in a cup. Add a little hot water and stir until it’s smooth. Pull out a double espresso shot (2 oz) directly into the cup with cocoa. You don’t have to make a microfoam or froth the milk for too long. Just heat up the milk until it’s steaming and pour over your espresso/ cocoa mixture.
And, that’s it. It’s ready in just 5 min and is sooo, so delicious. Like a chocolate cake in a cup…
