Turkish Coffee Mocha

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sharon123

This is a super-special coffee that owes its lingering flavor to an unexpected source, says creator Fred Thompson. "Cardamom is a spice that creeps into taste memory without being immediately recognized," says Thompson, author of the cookbook, Hot Chocolate. I use almond milk for it's flavor and because I try not to use dairy.

I made this a couple of weeks ago and completely forgot to review it, D'oh. Thanks very much to awalde for reminding me. I used sugar free chocolate syrup and Splenda so that I could enjoy this wonderful cup of pure pleasure. Simply loved the chocolate and cardamom flavors in my Corta's Mediterranean coffee.
