I am LDS (Mormon) so I don't drink coffee, not even decaf, I also don't smoke or drink alcohol. Since this is a "Healthy Me" blog and not just a weight-loss blog, I thought I'd share a simple recipe, that isn't exactly diet, but I believe is a healthier choice than coffee (and pretty freakin' good!) :) If you want to read more about the Word of Wisdom (which is what the commandment to avoid such items is called), I encourage you to check it out. Before I became active in the church, I used to love cappuccinos, especially caramel ones. I haven't had an actual cappuccino in many, many years, but occasionally I crave one. I came up with an excellent solution.
The Non-Coffee Cappuccino... here is the cast of characters.
2 tsp pero
2 c low fat vanilla soy milk
2 heaping T dulce de leche or caramel syrup
a handy-dandy hot chocolate maker (not just for hot chocolate anymore!)
Mix your ingredients into your Cocomotion (come on baby, do the Cocomotion) and turn it on. (You could also just warm it up on the stove & whisk it, but where's the fun in that?)
When it's done, pour it into two regular sized mugs or one big ol' mug like mine. Look at that frothy goodness. Mmmmmmmm so good! Even my coffee-drinker brothers and sisters have enjoyed this when I've made it for them.
