I can smell spring in the air when I step outside. Nothing quite says summertime like a good ol’ iced cappuccino. I remember the milk-and-sugar-laden concoction from Tim Hortons well. The whipped cream on top with sweet sugary frozen caffeinated goodness underneath. The almost flavourless ice left at the bottom every time.
The bloating and the blood sugar crashes. Good times.
Needless to say when I woke up to a particularly balmy morning here in Vancouver, I immediately went to my freezer to pull out some frozen Americano cubes. Enter, vegan mocha iced capps.
8 ounces of frozen Americano
½ cup almond milk
1-2 teaspoons cacao or cocoa powder
8 drops English toffee stevia
½ tsp maca powder (optional)
Add all ingredients into the blender and slurp away! Sun, warmth, and tan not included.
