What is it about cafe-born mochas that makes them so much better than at-home recipes? Maybe it's the high-quality chocolate or type of espresso, or perhaps it's the expertly frothed milk that takes the consistency to the next level. We'll wager it's the latter—who doesn't swoon over a creamy, frothy beverage?

To replicate airy lattes at home, many invest in an electric frother to whip the milk into foam, but these can be expensive and time-consuming, especially if you're hoping to make a mad dash out the door. If this sounds like you, well, you've come to the right place. Here's how to craft a creamy mocha at home—no frother necessary.

How to make a frothy mocha, without a milk frother.

How to: 

First, you'll want to heat up your milk. If you're using alternative milk, you may want to opt for oat milk, as it froths up a bit better than almond or soy. 

Then add your espresso and your sugar-free chocolate collagen powder. The latter is what makes this beverage so frothy without an actual milk frother. (Just check out this video: This collagen powder seriously froths up like a dream.) Whisk the blend together using your electric whisk, making sure to mix at the bottom of the beverage and toward the top for an extra-fluffy layer.

Finally, add your sweetener of choice, if you like a softer flavor. Because mbg's chocolate collagen powder is made with premium organic cocoa powder and organic monk fruit extract, it already offers a rich, smooth flavor—so you might want to skip the added sweetener, anyway. 

And voilà! A frothy, chocolatey mocha that tastes cafe-quality without the cafe price. Plus, you have a serving of hydrolyzed collagen peptides, turmeric root and broccoli seed extracts, vitamins C and E, hyaluronic acid, biotin, and L-glutamine, which provide a host of beauty benefits, like supporting firm skin and strong nails.* You can read more about what these ingredients do for your body here, if you want to learn more.
