strawberry butter on toast & honey latte

Honey in my coffe is one of my favorite ways to drink coffee. It’s a nice change from the plain coffee with just a little bit of half-and-half that’s my normal go-to. Besides being so much healthier then plain sugar, the flavors of the honey play so nicely with the coffee. Do you have any sugar alternatives that you put in your coffee? I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy my morning cup.

Strawberries, honey, butter, and lemon are mingled together then spread on warm toast. The butter melts into the toast while the flavors sing a spring song.
