Reviews for Frothy Mexi-Mocha Coffee
"For the work and expense of this drink I would not recommend it. We really like trying new coffee drinks. This one was terrible, it was like drinking chocolate sugar water. We even added double the strong coffee and it didn't help. If you looking for something like a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts drink this is not it."
"Didn't care for it...too sweet! "
"Tasted good, but too many calories for a beverage."
"Unbelievably yum!!! I will probably cut back on the sugar a little next time, but I love it!"
"I have not made this recipe yet but I have flagged it to try. Sounds yummy to me. As I do with most recipes, I QUIETLY change ingredients I know I can to suit my personal preferences and requirements without altering the outcome."
"Found this recipe yesterday, made it today. I also cut the brown sugar to half a cup since my hubby doesn't like too sweet. Yummy. Will be making again."
"This was just wonderful."
"This is a Very good drink. If you drink Starbucks Mochas, they are just as bad. Just remember, everything in moderation, will not harm you. Enjoy this as a treat. Not a morning habit. Jbhickory6 has a good alternate. That was also great!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe Maria ; )"
"FYI: SUGAR TWIN MAKES A TOTALLY SUGAR FREE BROWN SUGAR SUBSTITUTE THAT YOU CAN USE SPOON FOR SPOON. I AM DIABETIC AND USE IT ALL THE TIME IN PLACE OF BROWN SUGAR. ALSO, FYI, BE CAREFUL WHEN USING SPLENDA IN A RECIPE. I HAVE FOUND IT TO BE 1/2 TSP SPLENDA TO 1 TSP SUGAR SUBSTITUTION. OTHERWISE IT COMES OUT SO SWEET YOU CAN'T EAT IT. I HAVEN'T TRIED IT YET. BUT PLAN TO, USING THE SUGAR TWIN."
"Just a reminder.This site does not claim to be healthy. I believe they have a sister site that is"
"This is a beverage substitute for a rich dessert. Nothing more."
"Gooood.!! I did add a little Balieys Cream , Kaula and a shot Burbon (of your choice). As responce to the "food cops"!! this is not you use every day , birthdays ,New Years and .ah ya know . in moderation .....!!?? ease up and Enjoy!!"
"It was delish...a nice TREAT! Thank you, Maria, for posting your recipe!! :)"
"Thanks for the great suggestion. I may try this recipe!!!!"

"I appreciate the constructive comments from those who actually tried the recipe making healthier substitutions."
"Unless you can use that many calories ( sugar & fat) this would be a special occasion indulgence. The flavor combo is yummy though"
"i just like to say thanks to all people that take time and post their recipe. THANK YOU"
"Am going to try, I used to make my own cinnabon chocolate coffee drink, will use the Sugar twins, to cut calories & sugar grams.If it is not quite the thing will just try something else."
"I used 1/8 cup of brown sugar and eliminated the orange peel since I didn't have any on hand. Very good recipe"
"With the amount of calories, I wouldn't even try this. Americans need to cut down, not add to their weight."
"I made this recipe with 1/2 cup brown sugar and it's still too sweet. I'll try it with 1/4 cup next time. I used 1/2 tsp dried orange peel instead of fresh."
"I made this coffee only using 1/2 c. brown sugar (for calorie reduction) and didn't have any orange peel and it was absolutely delicious!"
