1 c. skimmed milk
1 tsp. sugar
Put the sugar in the milk and thoroughly heat it in the microwave oven. Pour the milk in a blender and blend till it develops a thick layer of froth. You can also use a whisk for this purpose.
Brew the coffee till it is strong, and fill only 3/4 of your cup with coffee. Pour in the frothy milk and sugar mixture. Add in a pinch of cinnamon for a spicy flavor, or garnish the drink with some chocolate like I like to do!
1 c. Coffee Granules
1 c. Sugar
3/4 c. Powdered Chocolate Drink Mix
4 c. Powdered Milk
1/2 jar Flavored Creamer
Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl, and store it in an airtight jar.
Add 3 tablespoons of this mixture to 6 ounces of boiling water. Use a whisk or a milk frother to give it that real frothy appearance. Add more flavors like: cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, or vanilla extract.

1 tsp. Sugar or a Low Calorie Sweetener
6 fluid oz. cold milk
3 tbsp. warm water
First, prepare a tall glass filled to the brim with ice cubes. Then, in a shaker or a jar that can be sealed, add in all the ingredients and shake thoroughly. Pour the drink into the glass.
NOTE: The strength of the coffee and the sweetness can vary as per your choice. If you prefer strong coffee, you may add some more coffee to the drink. The same goes for the sugar. As goes for the above mentioned recipes, even this drink can be varied with additions of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, or even hazelnut.

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2-1/2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
For the Glaze:
1-1/3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Heat oven to 375°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; set aside.
In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2/3 cup milk and 2 tablespoons sugar until dough forms. If dough is too sticky, gradually mix in enough Bisquick mix (up to 1/4 cup) to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto surface well dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 10 times.
Roll dough into 15×9-inch rectangle; spread with butter. Sprinkle evenly with sugar mixture (add raisins as well if you choose to). Roll up tightly, beginning at 15-inch side. Seal well by pinching edge of dough into roll. Cut into 1-1/4-inch slices; place cut sides down in pan.
Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Spread glaze over warm rolls. Makes 12 rolls. ENJOY!
