The Ultimate Coffee Date 2016 #3

Good morning and happy Saturday.  It’s March already, and as you can tell by the lack of posts, my blogging had taken a back seat recently as I have been adjusting to life lately.  I am here today though to join all of you for coffee. While having coffee today, I will share with you that it has taken me longer than I thought to adjust to having our oldest son gone.  Since leaving for the Army Rangers, my entire world has been changed and if I were to be totally honest, I just checked out.  I feel as if I would be discrediting myself if I didn’t let you know that I just have had days where I didn’t have the desire to get out or really get up out of bed.  I would just go through the motions of the tasks I knew needing tending like getting the…  Read More…

Chocolate Chai Latte

Fall and winter means time for lattes, coffee and tea.  I am not one to go to Starbucks everyday and get my “fix”, I actually make enjoy making my coffee drinks at home.  The only problem is, I seem to be missing out on the ever so popular Red Starbucks Cups. Today is an easy Chocolate Chai Latte made with zero sugar Almond Milk. INGREDIENTS Tazo Chocolate Chai Latte Concentrate Zero Sugar Almond Milk {plain or vanilla} Cinnamon This is seriously too easy… Heat 1 cup of almond milk {measuring depends on how much you want to make, this was for a large cup}, bring the almond milk to somewhat of a boil, but whisk until frothy.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the chocolate chai latte mix and continue to whisk together.  You want to continue whisking until both ingredients are “frothed” together. Pour into you favorite holiday mug…  Read More…

Iced Coffee Latte with PB2

I am one of those people who CAN sleep on coffee.  Yes, forget the “decaf”, load me up!  I have finally gotten myself to drink my morning coffee without sugar, just plain {zero sugar, unsweetened} Almond Milk.  However, when it comes to the afternoon and I am feeling a tad groggy, I know I need to whip something up.  But I want to keep it somewhat as low sugar so possible {and cals}. Cold Peanut Butter Coffee Latte… Simple, simple…here is what you need… PB 2 {I love using this product when I need Peanut Butter} Almond Milk {zero sugar} you can substitute for Soy or whatever you prefer Dark Chocolate Chips Coffee {left over from the morning carafe} Chocolate Sauce {optional} Mix up your PB 2 according to the instructions on the container.  I used about 1/4 cup.  Add this to a blender with ice.  Add about 1/2 cup…  Read More…

Sugar Free Iced Mocha

How many times do we start to “crash” in the afternoon? Hellllooooo, always!  I don’t want to reach for something that is full of calories and sugar and I do love my coffee {I can actually drink it late in the day and still sleep}.  Well my body was feeling it yesterday so I took a look around the kitchen and wondered what could I make to help me through the day, besides just a cup of coffee. My SUGAR FREE MOCHA! Silk Zero Sugar Almond Milk Ice Ghirardelli Unsweetened Zero Sugar Cocoa Cold Coffee {from the morning} Cinnamon Super easy {no I did not measure} just went with what I felt good with.  Added everything to the blender and there you have it.  I like how it “chunked” up like an ice smoothie, but melted down.  I also LOVE that is was entirely SUGAR FREE! 🙂 What do you…  Read More…
