We are told to smell the roses each time we are encouraged to relax, take it easy and enjoy life. For a gardener like me I don't just limit myself to smelling the roses, I need to smell the Coffee as well to have a brighter day. You know... make it a " beautiful morning". During my pregnancy I had to limit my daily intake but I would literally open the cupboards and sniff the coffee. Smelling the coffee made me feel soooo much better.
If you are a coffee drinker I hope this post will make you smile!
I am not addicted to coffee by any means ( yes I say it humbly, they are people way worst), one to two cups a day is enough to make me happy especially when I have a lot to get done and I need a 'happy' boost!!!
Okay my own little disclaimer here before we get rolling:Too much coffee is not healthy but being happy is a healthy thing !!!
So today I wanted to simply share my own recipe for homemade cappuccino and share my happiness.
My sister in-law was visiting recently and when I offered her some coffee she replied that she wasn't a coffee person and wasn't very familiar with cappuccinos. I offered to make her a cup and she asked to have just a little.
I made her half a cup. She complained at first that I had given her too much but when I asked her minutes later if she liked it, she raised her empty cup and flipped it upside down to show me there wasn't even a drop left in it ...her proof that she liiiiiked. So I figured...if she liked it why not 'show her how I do it'...
This is just my personal version I want to learn yours so please share your tips. If you have never made one please try this recipe and let me know how you like it!!!
- Coffee grounds.

- Flavoring syrup. I love Hazelnut
- Milk. I prefer Silk Almond milk instead of dairy.
- Whip cream would be yuuummmy but optional. I stopped using it as much as I used to just because I am watching the calories,otherwise it's a great indulgence!!!
- One of many favorite cups/mugs of course!!!
Okay so what do I do?
Make the coffee as usual,
foam or warm my 1/4 cup milk ( I prefer to warm about a cup or more on the stove my kids love to drink the warm leftover).
Ready: A tablespoon of Hazelnut syrup, pour coffee in the mug, add milk, brown sugar, add a little bit of honey stir, top with whip cream ( optional) and add cinnamon.
Why Cinnamon? It not only adds flavor but also helps with weight loss soooo it's a way to limit the damage and have a drink packed with flavor!!!
What's your favorite morning drink? How do you make it?
Never had or made a cappuccino? Try and let me know how you like it!
