Relative to the number of American adults who consume coffee daily, there are very few who prefer their drinks black. Be it hot or cold, majority favor the beverage with a variety of ingredients to add flavor.
More often than not, flavored coffee drinks from cafes are jam-packed with unwanted extra calories. Therefore, frequent consumers should take the necessary precaution. If you really, really have to have flavored coffee, homemade concoctions are strongly advised. That way, you are aware – and more importantly, have control – of every ingredient that gets mixed into your beverage.
Milk is added in coffee, not only for flavor, but also for texture. Brewed coffee’s “mouth feel” is primarily water. Adding milk in coffee, such as in this frozen mochaccino recipe, gives the beverage a thicker, velvety smoothness.
