I gave up coffee for 10 days. Then I decided I was smarter and nicer when I drank coffee and that I could kick the caffeine love when the baby was 5. Or 18. Whatever.
We have eliminated all processed food, refined sugar and anything with corn syrup from our house. I can actually hear my body thanking me. Then I decided I was smarter and nicer when I had chocolate. And that I’m never giving that up.
So I made up my own mocha coffee. I like to call it the The PMS Helper.
Ladies. This drink makes the world a better place. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, just use hot water instead.
Recipe for mocha coffee:
1 heaping tablespoon of powdered cocoa (don’t be shy)
1 tablespoon cane sugar
a dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Brew a cup of coffee right into the powder mixture. I use the second the largest setting on the Keurig which is about 10 – 12 ounces. (Or a cup to cup and half of boiling water) Whisk until blended. Stir in the vanilla. Top off with a little milk. (We use raw milk. Straight from the udder.)
