I was never really into straight coffee, even when it was the trendy thing to do on the way into class or on a first date or because you stayed up all night cramming for a test… but I’ve always been a sucker for a good mocha latte. It’s the lure of chocolate, I suppose. I’d eat just about anything if chocolate was involved and I know I’m not the only one. (Case in point: chocolate-covered insects. And raisins.) Coffee and cocoa make a heck of a duo and I love starting a cool winter day curled up with one of these bad boys. Yes, even on the AIP when I can’t have coffee OR cocoa OR milk! With coconut milk, carob powder, and a simple homemade herbal coffee concoction, this is an indulgence you don’t have to feel guilty about. Of course, those of you who aren’t sensitive to dairy, chocolate, or coffee can feel free to use those instead. And during the warmer months, you can easily turn it into an iced mocha by using refrigerated “coffee” and adding some ice to the blender!
