Coconut Mocha Latte

Coconut Mocha Latte #recipe #homemade

Summer BREAK!!!! Ah! Please give me a minute to take a deep breath. Seriously, kids are home and I can already feel their presents until they go to bed. 
I am really and honestly so, so thankful for teachers and those 8 hours that they spend with our kids in school. Don't you agree? 
So, my oldest one graduated from 7th grade, my girl is finally out of the elementary and ready for 5th grade, and I do have one more who just completed 1st grade. I was all emotional when school ended, but that feeling soon went away or was it next the morning when they woke me up and called my name at least 100 times in less than one hour... Oh, yeah! I am pretty sure that I am ready for school to start again!:) 

Anyhow.....to skip that part lets write about something else before they start calling me again. 

Once upon a time Starbucks introduced coconut mocha, but they don't have it anymore and if they do bring it back it is always limited time offer. I know this is not the same, but flavor of cocoa and coconut as well as coffee is there so why not try my healthier version at home.
