Good morning Dear Friends,
I pray each of you are having a lovely morning in the Lord.
I am sitting here drinking my lovely coffee and thought I would share with you a less expensive healthy alternative. 🙂
OK, first off I LOVE my big beautiful mug from my sweet Hubby for my morning coffee!! 🙂
Less trips and helps me to get more finished before I run in for a refill. 🙂
Here are the wonderful components of my morning brew.
I LOVE the Mocha Swirl Folgers. Now I have been a coffee snob through the years having grown up with our neighbors owning a gourmet coffee shop!! 🙂
I prefer to only drink organic…but I just haven’t found any good organic chocolate in my area. But hopefully soon! I also love a good Hazelnut coffee as well.
And when I feel decadent, I LOVE Snickerdoodle coffee from a gourmet coffee shop I have to drive to around 45 minutes away!! It’s a bit pricey, so I limit this to 1 bag per year. 🙂
I start with good filtered water in my handy dandy small coffee maker. FYI, I am the only coffee drinker in our home.
Scoop in the flavored coffee of the day!! 😉
I also add 1 scoop of the Sam’s Choice Organic Arabica Medium Roast coffee to the flavored coffee to help stretch the flavored coffee and mellow it out a bit.
And finally I warm up a little unsweetened Chocolate Almond milk. I occasionally drink unsweetened plain coconut milk too in my coffee.
Now I also LOVE the dark chocolate almond milk but this was on sale last week at Whole Foods.
This is much better than a famous coffee shop…remaining nameless’s Mocha Latte!!
You can even add a little fresh whipping cream…but I skip this to step to save a few calories/fat and I like the milk-less calcium alternative.
I am not dairy free but I try not to overdue.
When finished I save all clipped tight coffees in a freezer ziplock bag in my freezer. This helps to keep all coffee fresh!! 😉
Benefits of this yummy start to my day:
I can stay in my jammies, save loads of money, have a wonderful healthy alternative and drink my tasty coffee while I read and write each morning!!
And honestly, YUMMY morning wake up!!! 😉
Now…come the cold weather months I love hot teas.
Hmmm, maybe I will share these this Winter. 🙂
Have a great day in the Lord and please share your favorite morning beverage,
