Naturally Healthy, Milk Free, Maple Mocha!

maple mochaI love coffee shops. 

I love the whole paper cup thing. people watching and of course the coffee.

I am a bit of a coffee fan. I don’t drink it often, but when I do I am very fussy about the temperature, taste and quality of coffee (I used to help run a coffee shop so I know what I like!) 

Now into  this coffee equation always comes flavoured drink or ‘seasonal’ drinks. Pumpkin latte, ginger bread lattes or frappacinos are always available and tempting. I however don’t want to consume all that sugar, and artificial preservative or  cow’s milk . Thankfully I have a creative brain (that’s what a fine art degree does for you is nothing else!) and love to create naturally health alternatives.

Plus its January and we are probably all trying to tighten our purses after the festive splurge, so a DIY flavoured coffee is the perfect budget solution!

So enjoy this delicious drink, the perfect Saturday Brunch accompaniment or lazy Sunday newspaper (or for me  large nutrition book) beverage. I love maple syrup, it 100% natural and tasty, plus you all know how much I LOVE fats and this is a tasty way to get them into your day .(Not clued up on fats yet? Read this blog) Plus this is a perfect way to enjoy a mocha without lots of milk, so perfect for any mild lactose intolerant people , as butter is very low in lactose but still gives a creamy taste.

Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2

  • 2 tbsp 100% Maple Syrup or to taste
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence

  • Put all the ingredients in a blender, or jug for a hand blender, and blend until smooth and frothy. Bang the jug on the worktop to remove the bubbles and pour in to you two small mugs or one large mug!


This make two small or one large coffee. You could use all coconut oil and not butter for a diary free option, it would just taste more coconuty.

If you didn't know already I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with coffee.   I love it, my gut and body historically have hated it. But all in all, I am a total coffee snob and fiend.   And there is nothing that screams Christmas more than a SEASONAL...
