So, let me start off by saying that when it comes to regular everyday coffee, I am a Dunkin Donuts gal all the way! I love their Hazelnut and French Vanilla blends and typically drink 2 4 cups of it each and every day! But…when it comes to the fancy coffee drinks, I have to hand it to Starbucks. They have created some pretty awesome combinations! One of my favorites is their Coconut Mocha Macchiato. I mean, that just SOUNDS great, doesn’t it? And when you taste it, it almost makes you forget that you have just paid over $5 for a single serving of coffee….ALMOST! Well, with this recipe, you will be able to make your very own Coconut Mocha Macchiato for much less than they charge…plus you will be able to make it exactly the way you like it. How awesome is that?
Let me show you how simple it is to make this dreamy glass of goodness. First, you add a bit of chocolate syrup into the bottom of a tall glass. Add a little, add a lot. It’s up to you!
Then, toss in a handful of ice cubes. See how easy this is so far?!?
Now, fill your glass about 2/3 full with coconut milk. This is my favorite part! The creaminess of the coconut milk starts to swirl together with the chocolate syrup…mesmerizing! I could watch this all day! well, not ALL day, I mean, at some point I really wanna drink this stuff!
Now, if you like your coffee a bit sweeter…this is when you should add some sugar or stevia. Add it directly to the hot coffee BEFORE you pour the hot coffee into your drink. This gives the sweetener a chance to melt and mix before you add it to the cold drink. Now, fill the glass to the top with strong coffee. Watch how the coconut milk and coffee blend together. It is like watching a lava lamp swirling around…OMG! I guess I just showed my age, didn’t I? LOL
At this point, for good measure, drizzle a bit of chocolate syrup over the top…you know, just to balance things off! And there you have it! Your very own Coconut Mocha Macchiato! How amazing is that?
I guarantee you will love this one just as much as the real thing…and maybe even more! Aren’t you proud of yourself for being so smart and thrifty? I am! This means I can have these a lot more often without feeling guilty! Drink up…and enjoy the fact that you made this amazing concoction all by yourself!
