Dark Chocolate Mocha

It's chilly out today and as I wait for the kids to get home off the school bus I get hit with a bit of inspiration to make a mocha for an early afternoon pick-me-up.  This really hit the spot and was very delicious.  You can make it as sweet as you want. I prefer a minimally sweet flavor to my dark chocolate so I used right around 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons of honey.  You can sweeten it to your own liking.  I used my immersion blender along with the blender cup to make this.  A regular blender or ninja-type appliance would work as well.

This is a paleo and clean eating food choice.

Dark Chocolate Mocha

8 oz of your favorite coffee
2 tablespoons coconut cream - I use AROY-D Coconut Cream
2-3 teaspoons honey (depending on how sweet you want your mocha)
2 teaspoons cacao powder - I use Healthworks Raw Certified Organic Cacao Powder

Before you brew your coffee, put your coconut cream, honey and cacao powder in your immersion blender cup.  Pour in your hot coffee then use immersion blender for about 20-30 seconds to mix well.  Pour the mocha back into your coffee cup and savor it.
