Mocha Coconut Latte Mugcake with Coconut Chia Froth

26 Jun

Why are mugcakes one of the best recipes ever to make?

They are so easy! and NO waiting around for it to bake or cook! Usually, when I’m hungry, I’m hungry, and waiting around while something cooks or bakes leads to snacking and then not even being hungry when it is done. So mugcakes are a great creation :)

All you have to do is mix together a base for the “cake”, add the flavors you are wanting, pour it into a mug, and place it in the microwave for a minute or two. What could be easier than that?!

The inspiration of this flavor came from a local coffee shop I have up at my university. I wanted something new, something different. And when I told them I like chocolate and I like coconut, they created me what I would like to consider a little taste of heaven, and Mocha Coconut Latte.

I knew I had to recreate these flavors when seeing one of my favorite health accounts on instagram hosting a mugcake challenge, TastyHealth. If you haven’t checked her out on instagram or on thw web, you should do it now. This lady is amazing!

Anyways, so I went to work in my kitchen recreating this delectable latte flavoor into a mugcake, and this was my result. Let me tell you, it did NOT last very long at all :)
