With the leaves changing color and a hint of chill in the air, I’ve added a cup of coffee to my breakfast routine. Cradling the warm mug in my hand, I go about getting ready for the day. Surprisingly, this small adjustment leaves me feeling pampered in the morning.
While most days I stick with a simple black cup of coffee, there are those occasional mornings where I would rather stay snuggled under the covers than face the day. For those groggy mornings, I wondered how I could tempt myself to roll out of bed. After mulling it over I came up with the perfect addition — maple whipped cream!
Who wouldn’t want to crawl out of bed for this?! Placed on top of pipping hot coffee, the whipped cream melts into a delicious layer of foam that is sure to start your day with a smile.
