Real Food Salted Caramel Mocha

Real Food Salted Caramel Mocha- www.NourishingSimplicity.org

Remember that decadent chocolate whipped cream I shared with you last week? I found another amazing way to use the delightful treat a real food salted caramel mocha. It’s no secret that I have a weakness for all things dark chocolate and coffee. The numerous versions of hot cocoa, mochas and faxuccinos can attest to that. Tempting you a bit? They’re all on my recipe page. :)

Last year I shared my salted caramel fauxccino at The Nourishing Gourmet so it was only fitting that I also share the cool weather version that I have been enjoying for over a year with you as well. Most things I share here are quite nourishing. This delightful coffee is not one of them. It’s made with real food ingredients but it’s definitely a dessert saved for a special treat.

Everyone one needs a special treat now and then right? Of course! This rich mocha top with chocolate whipped cream, dark caramel sauce and a sprinkle of coarse real salt is divine! The salt slowly melts into the caramel and whipped cream, infusing the drink, balancing with sweet with just a touch of salt.
