My daughter is a chocoholic and she also loves her coffee. She loves every drink I make based on these two ingredients. So for this summer, I wanted to make her a drink which will awe her. I kept it as a secret from her. I made the mocha and refrigerated it two days back. And on the day of serving, she was so surprised that I took out the cream and was whipping it with some coffee. As she knows that I will never taste that cream, it can mean only one thing, it was for her and she started nagging me with questions. What are you doing? I said surprise!
When I was assembling the drink and taking some snaps, she just couldn’t wait. I have been starving for a long time. After I have started with my diet, I have become so health conscious, that I have stopped making all of her favourite dishes saying they are not good for health. Today morning I was mixing ganache for a cake project. She just couldn’t stay away. She was just following me everywhere and finally I gave her the spatula so that she could lick it. I know it is so cruel but I just want her to be healthy. I will be very happy if she understands why I do all this. Hope it happens someday. Coming to this cold mocha, she loved it so much. As it is a tall glass, she couldn’t even finish it. She loved it to the core and I am so happy that I could atleast give her something she loves just for a day or two.
