Coffee is my best friend. I have a cup, maybe two in the mornings, as soon as I wake up. It is something that brings me a lot of joy in the mornings. Sounds lame? Well true coffee lovers will fully understand my sentiments. No I am just kidding, it is totally okay if you don't like coffee...we can still be friends. I promise.
But really...coffee is one of my favorite drinks. I always drink it in the morning but I find that around 2 or 3 in the afternoon I am in need of a drink to sip on to give me a second wind but often I want something other than a steamy cup of joe...so what is a coffee lover to do?
Well, I am here to help you out. Try this quick and easy recipe! It is a great way to use up leftover coffee from the pot you make in the mornings. You will need an ice tray for this just by the way.
Frozen coffee cubes
Milk (almond, regular, coconut...whatever suits your fancy)
Cream (Heavy cream, half and half, flavored creamer, again, do what makes you happy)
Dash of sugar, honey or other sweetener
Chocolate Syrup or Caramel Syrup (or any coffee flavoring syrup)
Just freeze your leftover coffee in an ice tray. I use about 6-8 cubes in my drink.
Add about 1 cup of milk, a dash of creamer, sweetener and syrup. Blend your little heart out.
Then pour into your favorite drinking glass, sprinkle some cocoa powder on top, pop in a straw and enjoy!
I just love my Anthro inspired "zinc" letters. Don't you? I may see a tutorial coming in the future here for these little guys...stay tuned!
