Sweet & Caffeinated: Espresso Profeta

Posted on by sorellacaffe

Happy 2014! I don’t know about you, but I certainly had fun indulging in some (or several) sweet treats this holiday season! In an effort to get back to my healthier routine, I wanted to sample something a bit lighter this time around.

Following my appointment yesterday morning, I decided to pop over to Westwood/UCLA for a tasty beverage at Espresso Profeta.

There are lots of little nooks where you can sit outside with your treat and bask in the beauty of a Southern California “winter” morning. After spending the last two weeks in New England for the holidays, I welcomed the warm sun!

Ultimately, I decided to remain true to my vow of eating/drinking a little cleaner this month (note: I make none of these promises for February’s entry) and went with a Moroccan Mint tea latte made with soy milk.
