Enjoy a Cuppa Joe on Coffee Day

I didn’t love coffee until after college — and then it was more milk and sugar than it was coffee. Most days now I drink it simply with light coconut milk from the can. It’s a little bit naturally sweet and mixes well into the hot java. It’s better for me than the tablespoon (yes, TABLESPOON) of sugar I was putting into my coffee prior to my Whole30 .
I confess, though, that when fall comes, and the Salted Carmel Mocha Frappucino is on the scene. Well, yeah, I’m a goner. I think I’ve had more fraps in the last month than I have had all year! Forget the PSL, give me the SCMF!
Today, in case you didn’t know, is National Coffee Day. It was begun in Japan in 1983 . It’s got lots of other names: Coffee Day, International Coffee Day, Coffee Break Day, whatever.
While I’m a firm believer in the SCMF, I also think that we’re better served to make most of our coffee and accompanying treats at home. So, here’s a fun round up to make your coffee break a little sweeter today.
