We call this a latte, though I’m sure it’s not at all authentic. Is is good, however, fulfills my psychological need to sip something warm and coffee-ish in the morning, and doesn’t pack the caffeine punch of a full cup of coffee. And it makes me happy. Not surprising since it contains #1, #2 and #6 of the top 11 Mood-Lifting Foods. (HT to Lifehacker for the link)
Mom’s Morning Latte
Combine 1/4-1/3 cup of black coffee and 1-2 tsp. chocolate syrup. Fill to top with milk, and heat until it’s so hot you can barely sip it. Grab your Bible and enjoy some early morning quiet caffeine time.
Now if I could just bring myself to eat a Broccoli/Rice Mackerel casserole for breakfast, I’d be the happiest gal around. NOT.
But the latte works for me.
