Non-Coffee Cappuccino

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.

Hey! I wanted to answer your question about my tattoos. I have a total of 5 right now. 3 of them are on my ankle - it's really what started as a small tattoo that keeps growing. LOL Don't be afraid!!

Start small and you'll know if it's something you LOVE!! People either love it or hate it :) When your one hasn't healed and you are already planning others .... you're hooked!!

HA HA HA HA HA! I'm soooo sorry! Tell your hubby it's me who's confused - not you! :) He can even call and I'll tell him! LOL

I love mine, but they are so a personal choice. Now if I could just get my head straight and who DID ask.... Just ignore me :)
