Easy, Skinny Maple Cappuccino (Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free)


Mornings just got better thanks to this new, easy cappuccino drink. Just 4 ingredients to pure coffee bliss! Each 12 oz serving has 70 calories, 1 gram of fat and 3 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints, and 3 Green.

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Ingredients

1 cup (8 oz) vanilla, hazelnut, or regular brewed coffee or decaf

½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk 

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Dash of cinnamon


Instructions

1. Brew coffee strong. I used my Keurig machine and set it for an 8-ounce size cup. You can also brew in a regular coffee machine.

2. Add almond milk and maple syrup to a separate coffee cup. Mix to combine. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Transfer to a blender and process on high for 15-20 seconds. If you don’t have a blender, add almond milk and maple syrup to a small saucepan. Whisk continuously with a wire whisk until foamy.

3. Pour hot brewed coffee into a large mug. Pour blended milk on top. Add a dash of cinnamon.

4. Drink immediately. Enjoy!

Makes 1-12 oz serving (1½ cups)


Shopping Tips
I used my favorite K-cup for this recipe. It’s Donut Shop Vanilla Cream Puff.

Use your favorite unsweetened, non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut, or cashew milk. I love Blue Diamond Almond Breeze-unsweetened vanilla almond coconut. I bought mine at Target and Vons/Safeway in the refrigerator milk section.
