This delicious raspberry mocha will kick your day off right. Fresh raspberry syrup whips up in minutes, and can be stored overnight to make your mornings run a little smoother. And if you’re running low on time, you can use cold brew coffee to make a yummy raspberry iced coffee | Wellnesting

I’m a coffee fiend and I’ve been looking for ways to dress up my morning cuppa coffee for sometime now. While I usually stick to decaf, I still have a thing for the fancier concoctions like mochas and frappuccinos, and I’m always on the prowl for a good recipe.

So today, in honor of Monday (and cubicle-dwellers everywhere), we’re whipping up this delicious raspberry mocha.  Made with fresh raspberry syrup and a hint of cocoa, this is sure to kick start your week and get you running on all cylinders – and I promise you don’t have to use decaf.


Pssst. If you don’t have time to make coffee, much less raspberry syrup, in the morning, this would be perfect with cold brew! Simply make the syrup and coffee the night before and then mix them together before you head out the door in the morning.

Raspberry Mocha Recipe

Ingredients

For the raspberry syrup
1/2 c water
1/4 c agave
1/2 c raspberries
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the mocha
1/2 c strong brewed coffee
1 tsp cocoa powder
3/4 c almond milk
1 tbsp raspberry syrup

  1. Make the raspberry syrup by combining water, agave, raspberries and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Using a metal whisk, crush the berries and stir all the ingredients until combined. Once the mixture has come to a simmer, turn the heat to low and stir off and on for 15 minutes or until the syrup has thickened. Strain syrup through a wire mesh strainer to remove the seeds and store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  2. In a coffee cup, combine the coffee, cocoa, almond milk and raspberry syrup. If you want yours a little sweeter, add more raspberry syrup 1 tsp at a time.
