I have a weakness…coffee. I am a Starbucks lover. Don’t judge. I’m not a daily Starbucks addict. I would be broke! However, I do allow myself 1-2 visits per week. (Hey, we have to have our indulgences once in a while!)
On the other days, I make my coffee at home. I have finally settled on my most favorite way to drink coffee at home. With this concoction I am very happy even though I am not drinking my White Mocha. And, it’s such a simple concept!
Here’s what you have to do.
- Brew your favorite brand of coffee.
- Pour it in your favorite cup.
- Top it with fresh whipped cream (recipe below).
- Be happy.
That’s it! The whipped cream sweetens it just enough. The creaminess makes you think you are drinking a latte. It’s just delicious!
I’ve included my recipe below. And, let me tell you. You can change things up a bit with the extract you choose. I know. I’m wild and crazy sometimes! Replace the vanilla with peppermint extract, orange extract, or almond extract. Amazing!
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Add cold whipping cream, maple syrup, and vanilla in a bowl. Whip on high until soft peaks form.
