What is instant coffee and is it necessary for these homemade mocha cups?
Instant coffee is a dream come true. While some people tend to shy away from it because it’s not actually brewed, instant coffee has the same great taste and flavour of other coffee options.
For this recipe, you add the instant coffee and cook the sugar-free mocha cups on the stovetop. But for everyday use, instant coffee can easily be added to a hot cup of water to give you that instant coffee fix that you’re needing to start your day.
What is the difference between a latte, espresso or a mocha?
Many people are confused at all the varieties and options available at a coffee shop. Ordering coffee seems to have become so complicated.Sugar-free mocha cups. You can enjoy a chocolate and coffee sweet treat and stay on track!
An espresso shot is a single shot of ground coffee beans extracted with hot water. -single shot – 0.5g carbs
A latte is a single or double shot of espresso with the addition of steamed and frothed milk. This large volume of milk can be as much as 20g carbs from the milk alone! – medium 16fl oz – 20.3g carbs
Mocha (or sometimes called a mochaccino) is espresso with steamed frothed PLUS cocoa and sometimes sweetener. Many cafes just add cocoa syrup which will add even more carbs and sugar to your day. – medium 16fl oz – 53.2g carbs
What is the best way to order a coffee AND stay low-carb?
For me, I ditched the milky lattes and flat whites as soon as I realised how high carb they are.
Now, my regular order is an Americano (long black) with a side of hot water and heavy pouring cream. – 2g carbs AND I manage to get 2 cups of amazing coffee for my $$$.
