Trying new coffee recipes is a fun way to challenge yourself to a tastier cup of joe, plus it can lead to new discoveries about what you like. Maybe you always assumed that lattes were the only drink for you — until you tasted a caramel mocha for the first time. If you're looking for a change of pace from the usual, keep these tasty treats in mind.
Frozen Whipped Mocha
Mochas may be delicious at a coffee store, but their sugar content isn't exactly waistline friendly. You can cut down on the calories by using unsweetened cocoa powder instead of straight sugar and skim or 1 percent milk. The trick with a frozen mocha recipe is to prepare coffee ice cubes to chill the drink without watering down the flavor. Whether you make it full fat or not, it's a great treat to enjoy before a stressful day at work.
