Low-Carb, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free; THM "FP"
Ingredients
  • 1 large cup brewed espresso (I make the Lungo size on my Nespresso Inissia, which is 3.72 oz)
  • 5 oz unsweetened vanilla almond, coconut, or cashew milk (can increase to 8 oz if you prefer, just add a tiny pinch of pure stevia extract)
  • 1 teaspoon MCT oil (optional)
  • ½ tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1¼ teaspoons THM Super Sweet (can add more or less sweetener to taste, if desired)
  • peppermint extract (for Peppermint Mocha)
  • caramel extract (for Caramel Mocha)
Instructions
  1. In a milk frother, add cocoa powder, MCT oil, and almond, coconut or cashew milk
  2. Add extract of choice
  3. If you're making a Peppermint Mocha, add an extra ¼ teaspoon of cocoa powder
  4. Steam/froth milk until machine says it's completed. I don't like a lot of foam unless I'm making a cappuccino, so I usually stop the machine before it's done if the milk is looking too foamy
  5. Pour frothed milk mixture into hot coffee, stir, add extra sweetener if desired, and serve!
