  • 3 tbsp. white chocolate chips (or 2 tbsp. of white mocha sauce)
  • 1 ½ oz. espresso (read how to make espresso above)
  • 1 cup milk (regular, or any plant/nut milk)
  • whipped cream, if desired


  • In a small pot, combine the milk and white chocolate chips (or sauce) and heat over low heat, whisking nicely, until it's just about to start boiling and the chips (or sauce) are fully dissolved.
  • Prepare the espresso by using your preferred method (explained above).
  • Pour the hot espresso into a serving mug and then pour the sweet milk on top.
  • Top with whipped cream, if desired.



NOTE: Nutritional info uses 1% milk and whipped cream is not included. 
Please note, I explain the ingredients used in great detail above.


If you don't have an espresso maker at home, fear not, you still have two great and inexpensive options to make great espresso at home:
1) Instant Espresso. You can buy this Medaglia D'Oro Instant Espresso Coffee. Just mix one tablespoon of this coffee with two tablespoons of hot water and your espresso is ready. It actually tastes great!
2) Using a Moka Maker. In Italy, espresso is prepared in a “macchinetta” or “moka,” just like in the video below. A macchinetta is made up of 3 major parts: the bottom chamber (where you add water), the middle chamber (where you add coffee) and the top chamber (where your finished espresso will travel).
