Just over the last year I have become more of a coffee drinker. And when I say this I mean we actually have coffee in our house and an actual coffee maker. Baby steps people. But for me coffee is about sipping on a piping hot treat in the winter. I want it to be delicious but I also don't want to drink a ton of calories. It is a personal goal of mine to never rely on caffeine so I often make decaf unless I need the caffeine which is maybe once or twice every few weeks.
So after a few months of trying new coffee recipes and drinking coffee on a now somewhat regular basis, I feel like I have strong enough credentials to share some yummy holiday inspired recipes I have altered and came up with. Please take note that I like my coffee to be sweet and creamy so feel free to alter these to your personal coffee liking. Enjoy!
Skinny Pumpkin Spice Latte
1 cup coffee
2-1/2 cups Original Almond Breeze Almond Milk (40 calories a serving)
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 tablespoons Splenda
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin
Pour all ingredients into a pot and cook on the stove top. Mix ingredients with a whisk and cook until hot.
Egg Nog Latte
I just make this straight in my cup. Pour coffee into mug about 1/2-2/3 full and fill the rest with egg nog flavored soymilk. Warm up in the microwave if not hot enough.
Mint Chocolate Mocha
I also make this straight in my cup. Pour coffee into mug about 1/2-2/3 full and fill the rest with chocolate mint flavored soymilk. Warm up in the microwave if not hot enough.
