Homemade Mocha Latte
Love specialty bistro-style coffees? Hate toxic ingredients and artificial additives? Why not try creating your own healthy mocha latte recipe at home?!
This latte recipe is a simple rendition of my original power coffee recipe – this stuff is SO good!
Drinking butter coffee is a great option for those going keto or just someone that wants to incorporate more healthy fats into their daily diet.
I highly encourage you to try out both recipes for some added variety to your morning coffee routine.
The Mocha Latte Recipe
You can easily make at home…
**NOTE: I typically french press my coffee each morning. However, I chose to make this recipe using a one-cup brewing machine (Keurig) instead.
This simply illustrates just how easy it is to make a single serving latte. You can totally adapt this recipe with a full pot of brewed, pour-over, or pressed coffee!
- 8oz of freshly brewed coffee
- 1 tbsp collagen protein powder
- Small pinch (or handful) of chocolate chips (dark chocolate sweetened with Stevia is what I used)
- A splash of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp ghee
- 1 tbsp MCT oil
**Note: collagen & MCT oil are both what I would consider optional ingredients for this latte recipe and can easily be omitted.
First, add collagen to your cup & pour 8oz of coffee directly over the powder. Mix until powder is fully dissolved & set aside.
Next, add all other ingredients to a small pot.
Warm over medium heat, whisking until all the chocolate is melted.
Slowly pour the mixture into the pre-made collagen coffee, while frothing (this is what gives the coffee that perfect latte-like texture. Skipping this step may affect the final result).
Lastly, sip and enjoy!
This mocha latte recipe is a perfect mixture of coffee & chocolate, with no added sweeteners.
Just keep in mind, I’m not huge into sweet coffee recipes so this is meant to be a bitter-sweet chocolate latte!
If you prefer something sweeter, try adding some of the extras below to make it your own!
Other Simple Add-Ins:
- Sprinkle of fermented turmeric or cardamom to add some spice
- A TSP of maple syrup or organic coffee syrup to sweeten it up (erythritol or monk fruit work great too)
- Splash of vanilla extract to the warmed ingredients for added flavor
- Homemade whipped cream for that specialty coffee feel
Substitutions or Swap outs:
- Mocha flavored MCT oil in place of regular MCT oil
- White chocolate chips in place of dark chocolate chips
- Mocha cold brew, toasted coconut, or french vanilla creamer in place of plain almond milk
