  • If you want fun chocolate lines on your glass, dip a hand frother in chocolate syrup and spin it inside your glass at the desired spot for chocolate syrup lines. Alternatively, if you don’t have a hand frother, you can drip the chocolate syrup off the edge of a spoon holding the glass at a 45-degree angle. 
  • Instant coffee also works if you don’t have a coffee machine that makes espresso. 
  • This recipe can be used for a hot mocha as well, simply froth or heat your protein milk and pour over your espresso.
