Free Hot Cocoa to Soften Blow of Students Returning to University

As semester two begins, the folks at The Union decided the thought of making a 9:00 lecture might be a little too tough for some – so they’re bribing University of Dundee students to get out of their beds with the promise of a free hot cocoa.

They should pick Caffe D’Vita’s Hot Cocoa. Caffe D’Vita uses plenty of Dutch processed European chocolate in its hot cocoa, rich in flavor while soothing and creamy, and so easy to make, just hot add water.

Smoothie vs. Juicing

Health Benefits of Juicing VS. Smoothies

Juicing and smoothies are all the rage right now. While both can boost your fruit and vegetable intake (something most Americans need to do) and are great for getting a variety of produce into your diet, one is the better choice.

That’s the smoothie. Why? Juicing leaves behind a pulp, which contains fiber, and nutrients that you end up tossing away, and thus you lose most of the benefits of whole fruits and vegetables. Blending produce into a smoothie, however, preserves fiber, and a smoothie can deliver an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals because it often includes fruit skins and pith.

Cheers to a New Year

This year, celebrate New Year’s with a delicious drink recipe using Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino and Amaretto Cappuccino. This recipe can be served either hot or cold and are designed for individual servings.

Peppermint Cappuccino:

First, pour 1/3 cup (about 3 ounces) of Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino premium mix into a blender (for the hot version, see below). Add 3 ounces of water and 3 ounces of Peppermint Schnapps (or any peppermint liqueur) and a 16 oz cup-full of ice. Blend everything together and serve it with whipped cream and a fresh mint.

For the hot version, pour 1/3 cup (3 ounces) of Caffe D’Vita’s Peppermint Cappuccino premium mix into a small saucepan. Add the 3 ounces of water, heat everything together, remembering to stir (be careful not to boil it!!) Once everything is heated, add 3 ounces of Peppermint Schnapps (or any peppermint liqueur) before serving it in a warm mug with a peppermint stick.

For an Amaretto version: Same recipe only substitute Amaretto instead of Peppermint Schnaps.

For more servings, simply multiply the ingredients.

Recipe to Love for Iced Caramel Latte!

Making your own iced coffee or blended coffee drink is not only an easy endeavor, it should be economical.

The blended iced caramel latte is probably the most popular frozen beverage served in coffee houses and cafes all over the United States. Here is a recipe you can make at home with Caffe D’Vita’s Caramel Latte Blended Iced mix. Variations could include adding coffee or syrup.

Caramel Latte Recipe:
Makes 1 – 12oz beverage

Ingredients:
1/3 cup fresh Espresso or brewed coffee, cold or room temperature
1/3 cup milk (low-fat or non-fat milk foams up better than whole milk, you can also use soy milk)
2 heaping tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Caramel Latte Blended Iced mix
2/3 glass of crushed ice
Caramel syrup
Whipped cream

Directions:
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. You don’t need a commercial blender.

Blend using low speed then high speed to the consistency of “mud”. If you get “stuck”, use your “pulse control” and add more liquid

Pour into glass and add syrup and whipped cream to taste

Getting the right combination of ingredients and the right consistency takes a little practice but soon you will be making these drinks and all of their variations for friends and family.

Warm Up From the Inside Out

There is a classic coziness to the fall season. The colder air brings us together, encouraging warmth from within, glowing from your hearts, hearths, and coffee mugs. Caffe D’Vita believes that it is this togetherness, this warmth that truly exemplifies the spirit of the season. Classic flavors and scents like the almond flavor of amaretto and the crispy, fresh aroma of peppermint lie at the core of this warm holiday tradition.

This season, entice your customers with the sweet, savory aroma of our Pumpkin Spice and Irish Cream Cappuccinos. Offer them a warm Amaretto or Peppermint Mocha Cappuccino with a candy cane swizzle. Or, invite your customers in from the cold for a steaming cup of our premium classic Hot Cocoa.

Hot Cocoa Has Some Really Surprising Health Benefits

By: Melissa Breyer

Drinkable chocolate has been used for years to treat ailments and maladies. When chocolate made its way to France in the 17th century, it was used “to fight against fits of anger and bad moods.” Which wasn’t just the French being French, it was truly insightful, given that modern research has discovered that chocolate reduces levels of stress hormones in the bodies of people feeling highly freaked out.

Which begs the question: We keep hearing more and more about the health benefits of chocolate, can the same be applied to hot cocoa as well? As it turns out, the answer is a resounding yes. Read more

Cantaloupe Smoothie Pack a Powerful Punch

You can easily add satisfying and tasty protein smoothie drinks to any lifestyle. The fresh combination of banana, cantaloupe in this smoothie packs a powerful punch of fiber, potassium, calcium, vitamin C and beta carotene. The cantaloupe is known for its low calorie content and sweet and enticing aroma, cantaloupes are the most popular kind of melons in the US. I have also tried this with half a cantaloupe that was getting a bit mushy. I added 3 bananas (without freezing them) and added some leftover white grape juice instead of the orange juice. It turned out wonderful.

INGREDIENTS:
1 banana
1/4 ripe cantaloupe, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Smoothie mix
6 ice cubes

PREPARATION:
Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months). Remove banana from the freezer and let it sit until the skin begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove the skin with a paring knife. (Don’t worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks; combine in a blender or food processor with cantaloupe, yogurt, orange juice, and vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth.
