This is my morning no sugar added mocha recipe I started drinking during my intermittent fasting.
The recipe does not call for additional sugar, but the plant-based milks I use do have some sugar in them, but still way less than if you were buying a mocha from Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or some other fast-food restaurant or convenience store.
Mocha Recipe – serves 2
1 C oat-milk,
1 C vanilla soy-milk
3-4 Tbs cocoa powder
1 tsp instant espresso
Put all ingredients in a bullet or blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.
If you want to drink it warm, pour it in a microwave safe mug and heat for about 1 minute, depending on the strength of your microwave. Or,
On a hot day, pour it over ice. Mmm
Notice I do not add additional sugar in this recipe, but the milks do have some sugar in them. I found an unsweetened oat milk by Planet Oat that has only 40 calories and 0 sugars. The vanilla soy does have some sugar (9 grams). But making your mocha at home versus buying it out is a way to control just how much sugar you want to consume.
