Ahhh.... Latte

Anyone who knows me even a little knows that I love my candy coffee. In my special mug. One that I bought before I was married and used twice every day of my life until Mercy dropped it and broke the handle off. That was a sad day.

But I found another mug. I actually found two, just in case little fingers break on. (I'm setting myself up for success, you know.) 'Cause it's just not worth getting upset over stuff even if it is the mug out of which you have drank (drunk?) approximately 10,500 cups of coffee.


Since I have been on my attempt to lose weight this year, I have *GASP* cut out my coffee, since there is so much sugar in it. But it has sure messed with my morning schedule. I just love my computer and coffee time to wake myself up. So today, I made myself a Latte (imagine your favorite coffeehouse...) for just pennies!

1/2 mug of coffee
1/2 mug of hot milk
generous swig of chocolate syrup (sugar free)

Tastes just like a warm mocha frappucino! Yummy on a cold day like today!


  1. Sounds perfect. Good for you for cutting the sugar!

  2. YUMMY! I bet I could use full strength caffeine in that! And get in a dairy. And get in some chocolate first thing in the morning :)

  3. Mmmm... coffee!

    I survived on coffee & McDonald's when Elyse was in the hospital.

  4. Sounds delicious! I want one. Only, sugar please, in mine. And we're gonna need a photo of that mug. I like the white with blue speckled ones. And I feature you drinking out of them, so now my mental picture has gone fuzzy.

  5. I had a mug like that. It came from South Carolina and we went back the next year to replace it! I have even wrote an ode to my coffee cup on my blog. It is this same cup that is my user photo!

  6. Oh...can I have a cup with I suppose!

  7. i have two variations on my (oh so fave part of the day, coffee hour) coffee tastes.

    1 tsp of cinnamon in the grounds when you brew a pot is heavenly, with a shot of vanilla (imitation) extract in the pot

    1/2 tsp van in the mug with a tablespoon of brown sugar

    those are my favs.......

  8. Hooray for you! I have never been a coffee drinker, but I can imagine how hard it is to break that habit. I am glad you figured out a way to get the caffeine with the calories. Lisa~

  9. Okay....I'm in for this recipe :O)

    So I would heat my milk and combine that with my coffee? No special equipment?
