Coffee Drinks

Well, don’t want to talk only desserts here! Cannot forget our drinks and a lovely cup of cappuccino in the morning or afternoon or a cup of iced coffee can just as much hit the spot for me as much as a chocolate ice-cream cookie can. And, I love making these at home even without a machine. Here’s a couple quick little recipes to satisfy your coffee fix too.

Basic Cappuccino 
Ingredients:
1-1/2 c. strongly brewed coffee
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!

Instant Cappuccino
Ingredients:
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.

Iced Cappuccino
So what if you want a cold coffee drink? No problem!

Ingredients:
2 tsp. Instant Coffee
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.
