This keto-friendly mocha is so easy and delicious. The spices add an extra Mexican kick that will keep you warm on rainy days. If you want to keep it simple, skip the spices and use coffee, coconut milk, cacao powder and a few drops of stevia. To transform it into a complete breakfast meal, add some MCT oil and collagen.

Have you ever wondered how each recipe is created?

What you see as the end result takes on average 1-2 days and involves several steps: creating the recipe itself and exploring alternative ingredients, taking and editing photos, calculating nutrition facts using our App, writing the blog post, and finally sharing the recipe on the blog. Then I add a "magic" code so they automatically display not just in our integrated blog, but also in the Custom Meals tab ready to be added to your Planner! :-)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I’ve made this recipe twice now, using a coconut milk/almond milk blend, as that’s all I have until I get to the store. I’m thrilled with flavor and can’t wait to try coconut milk for the recipe.
My question:  The spices or Erythritol don’t seem to melt completely, and there is a grainy texture. Do you have any suggestions? Perhaps I should try Swerve confection instead.

Hi Angie, the sweetener should melt when mixed with hot liquids but sometimes it takes time with liquids that are creamy. You could use powdered sweetener or stevia drops instead.
As for the spices, you will see them in the liquid unless you strain them (they can't fully dissolve). If you want to remove the bits, leave then in to infuse for about 10 minutes and then strain through a fine mesh sieve 😊

Hi Martina,
I've made the mocha for today's breakfast. It was delicious!
I have a question though. I was wondering about the measuremeants of the Erythritol and the MCT oil. All the other measurements seem to be for 2 servings, but those two are for one serving, as you always use 20 g of Erythritol and 1 tbsp MCT oil for your smoothie recipes (1 serving). Is it intentional?
I ended up adjusting the two ingredients for my taste.
Thank you for the great recipes and for your dedication!

Thank you Inna! Yes, it was intentional but I think you can use both to taste - I only used 2 tablespoons of Erythritol per 2 servings (I don't like my coffee sweet and I personally skip it altogether). You can use one more tablespoon of MCT oil, it will work just fine 😊

Would this work with almond or cashew milk, you think? While this looks amazing, I'm not a fan of coconut!

Yes of course! It won't be as creamy as coconut milk, and will contain less fat but it will still work.
