Do you know what the worst part of Whole 30 was last month? No Mochas!! A few friends and I tried to come up with a compliant version using date syrup, but it just didn’t seem right. It felt like it would be cheating, and the carb count on date syrup is really high. To be honest, it is one of the main reasons why I switched to Keto! So the first thing I did was create the perfect Keto Caffè Mocha.

How to make a Keto Caffè Mocha:

Add the cocoa powder, collagen power, stevia, and salt to a 16 ounce mug.

Pour in the espresso and vanilla extract, stir to combine.

Add half of the steamed milk and the ghee to the mug. Stir until all of the powder is dissolved.

Yes it is very different from what you are used to, that’s the whole point! Even though it is different, it is delicious and quite satisfying.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • I have switched to using Collagen Peptides Powder instead of the fiber powder. I was allergic to one of the ingredients and had a horrible reaction.
  • I used Unsweetened Cocoa Powder because it has less carbs than Cacao Powder. It also has a deeper, richer taste…at least to me.
  • Adding Stevia Powder adds a layer of sweetness without adding any carbs.
  • For a sweeter mocha, add one tablespoon of Swerve sweetener.
  • I used Ghee because I am severely allergic to coconut! Feel free to substitute coconut oil or coconut cream if you prefer.
  • Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk does not contain carageenan or guar gum. Feel free to substitute homemade almond milk.
  • If you do not have an espresso machine at home, you can substitute double-strength brewed coffee.
  • Most espresso machines sold for home use do not have enough power to steam milk. You can “froth” heated milk with a hand blender or pour your mocha into a high speed blender to mix it up.

This is what 1/32 teaspoon of stevia looks like. A little goes a long way, and too much will make your drink very bitter!
