Now that summer is coming (well in Australia anyways), I wanted to swap my coffee for something a bit more refreshing for the warmer weather. Most coffee shops that are nearby do not have almond milk or coconut milk and I try to avoid soy milk wherever possible due to the GMO implications, so a Becomingness creation was needed!
I decided to make a dairy-free ice-mochaccino, using an almond milk base. I was really impressed with the results – admittedly I am a regular consumer of almond milk (and haven’t had regular milk for quite a while) – I don’t know if you’d pick the difference unless you’d read the recipe.
The best thing about this drink is that it is super easy to make – Just add all the ingredients to a blender and blend it on high for a couple of minutes to get a frothy consistency.
I hope you enjoy my latest creation.
