What’s the difference between a mocha latte and a latte?

If you’re not a coffee connoisseur, let us enlighten you. A latte is typically made with espresso and steamed milk, with a small layer of foam on top. Simple enough. But a mocha latte adds an extra dash of flavor to the mix: chocolate! That's right, a mocha latte includes chocolate syrup (or powder) in addition to the espresso and steamed milk. It's like a latte with a sweet, sweet surprise that any chocoholic would love!


Are there vegan options for the mocha latte recipe? 

Yes, you can replace whole milk with vegetable options like coconut, almond, oat, or soy milk. Plus, our Skinny Mixes Sugar-Free Mocha Syrup is vegan, sugar-free, and keto-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about it!

Are there any other options for espresso? I don’t have an espresso machine!

Yes, you can replace espresso with different types of brewed coffee for this mocha latte recipe. To get the closest result to espresso, try using a strong-brewed drip or French press coffee. For a lighter-tasting coffee, choose a light or medium-roast single-origin or blend. Another option is to use espresso beans to create an Americano; mix two parts of hot water with one part of freshly brewed espresso.

Can the mocha latte be iced instead of hot?

Yes, you can make an iced mocha latte. To do so, simply use cold brew or espresso over ice instead of hot espresso. Add cold, frothed milk mixed with our mocha syrup or cocoa powder for the mocha flavor. Enjoy your refreshing iced mocha latte!
