1. Almond Milk Mocha

Millions of people around the world are lactose intolerant, but that doesn’t mean that they cannot enjoy coffee just as much as everyone else. In fact, almond milk is one of the most nutritious and tasty replacements for regular milk. It is rich in vitamin E, D, and antioxidants. Chocolate almond milk coffee, also known as an almond milk mocha, can easily be made at home.

After brewing the coffee, pour it in a cup, add hot almond milk, and add in cocoa or chocolate flavoring to your liking. Add in a sweetener of your choice, but keep in mind that chocolate flavoring is already quite sweet.

2. Hot Nutella Coffee

It is quite rare to find someone who dislikes Nutella, so why not add it to your coffee? A cool way to do this is to make your regular coffee with the creamer or milk of your choice, and pour in the Nutella.

Coffee lovers suggest keeping the Nutella cold so that it does not mix instantaneously with the coffee; this way you can get the best of both worlds. You put in a large spoonful of Nutella, drink some of the hot coffee, and when you’re almost done, the Nutella will have fully melted and you will get a full explosion of the delicious chocolate mixed in with your favorite brew.

3. Frothy Iced Instant Coffee

If you are tired of hot coffee, then you can easily make it iced and frothy. Many people need something cold to drink in the morning because they feel like it makes them more alert. This recipe can be made with any flavor of your choice and whichever milk or creamer suits your preferences.

First, you will need to pour the sachet of instant coffee in a mug and pour in a little hot water so that it can mix properly. Then add in the cold water, cold milk/creamer, and a few ice cubes if you wish, and froth it up. If you do not own a frother, you can pour some milk in a jar, close it tightly, shake it vigorously for about 40 seconds to a minute, and pour it in your coffee. Since it will not be fully frothed like it would be with a machine, decrease the amount of milk you put in the second step of this recipe.

4. Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

The combination of coffee and chocolate is the perfect blend to release endorphins and put you in an excellent mood. If you have a sweet tooth, then this recipe will be great for you to try out. You will need some ingredients: all-purpose flour, cocoa, baking powder and soda, cornflour, salt, butter, brown sugar, egg, instant coffee, and chocolate chips.

Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl and the liquid ingredients in another bowl with a mixer or by hand before combining them. The amounts of each ingredient will certainly depend on the servings, so adjust them accordingly. Roll them into balls and place them on a tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius for about 5 minutes.

Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven and leave them for about 8-12 minutes. Try not to open the oven door too much as the air from the outside can alter the heat levels and ruin your cookies. If you must open it, then open it for a few seconds and shut it as soon as you have checked up on your baked goodies.

5. Mocha Cake

For this cake, you will need butter, flour, sour cream, cocoa, water, veggie oil, buttermilk, 2-3 tablespoons of instant espresso, and two eggs. The larger the portion the more ingredients you will need. Add them in a bowl and stir them until there are no lumps here or there. Preheat your oven at 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius and bake the cake in for about 45 minutes.

6. Mocha Brownies

For this delicious recipe you will need the same ingredients as the mocha cake, but use much less flour and no sour cream. Depending on whether you like your brownies a little crunchy or a little on the softer side, you might want to check on them by inserting a toothpick or a fork in one of them after fifteen to forty minutes. There are numerous benefits to brownies and they turn out to be delicious if made correctly.
