Brighten up your morning with this rich and creamy Healthy Cinnamon Mocha made with real food ingredients!
I'm in a relationship with flavored coffee.
It didn't used to be this way. I use to be a minimalist. Small coffee with soy, please. Large almond milk lattes or cold brews on the weekends. You know the drill.
Then I met my lovely boyf and his obsession with grog and snickerdoodle soon became my obsession with grog and snickerdoodle. I always loved coffee, but his love for coffee made mine grow tenfold.
Ya see, coffee is a fantastical drink because it's so social. It's not just the flavor or the caffeine or the fact that it pulls me back together when I feel as if I'm more like three million pieces than one person. People talk over coffee. They put their phones away over coffee. They walk to get coffee. It's casual, carefree, inexpensive, and just so lovely. It's truly an experience, and I think it makes the world a better place.
As does cinnamon! Whenever I see cinnamon coffee, I have to stop and take a deep breath. In through the nose, out through the mouth.
Now I can have my little cinnamon treat in the comfort of my own home next to my comfy boyf all wrapped up in a comfy plaid blanket before we go apple picking and do ALL THE AUTUMN THANGS!
Ugh, I just love this snuggly season so hard.
