Reposting a popular drink recipe from last year. Still one of my all time favorite things to
gulp sip on anytime of day….
This is my daily, sometimes bi-daily …..tri-daily? ….drink this summer.
It’s so refreshing, mildly sweet, and easy to make.
The ingredients can be adjusted to your own liking.
Substitutions in Nut Milks and coffee can be made.
I like it just as it is though……………no sugar, no dairy, no fuss!
I drink the same thing when it’s cold too………just warm it all up instead of adding Ice.
The proportions I’ve worked out are:
- Cafix is available at iHerb and most health food stores.
For the syrup:
Boil 2 cups of water.
Add in a few Tbs. of Cocoa Powder for a MOCHA flavor.
Add in sweetener of choice.(I add about 1 tsp. of Liquid Vanilla Stevia in mine)
Store your syrup in a sealed container in the fridge. Or pour syrup into ice-cube trays.
For the Drink:
Fill glass half way full with ice.
Pour in non dairy milk of choice to almost the top of the glass.
Add in enough syrup, maybe 2-3 Tbs., to fill glass and stir.
Or if you’ve frozen your syrup in ice trays, add in a few frozen cubes to flavor.
One 16 oz. glass of Homemade Iced Mocha will run you about .50, compared to $4.00+ at Starbucks!
Cafix Coffee Substitute is made from roasted Barley and Molasses. It has a rich taste, similar to coffee but without the caffeine.
So refreshing and healthy. Why drink soda when you can have a drink that’s full of nutrition?
And just as thirst quenching…………
