Creative ideas for making coffee based drinks...

  1. I will love to read your posts on the creative ideas on the way you make coffee based drinks and what are your favourite bought ones and where they are from.

    I love to make a skim milk coffee with almond essence. I put 3 heaped tablespoons of skim milk powder in food processor bowl with a cup of cold water and about 4 ice cubes, 1 tsp of coffee powder and 4 drops of almond essence. Sometimes I have vanilla essence instead of almond - depending on my mood. And Wizz..... YUM

    Love McDonalds Cappaccino with a shot of banana toffee, good stuff!

    Love to read (hear) from you

    This time of year, I like to use eggnog as my creamer. Very tasty.

    I don't usually do anything as complicated as what you described, I want that coffee FAST! But, it sounded good!

    I love the smell of coffee, but I generally don't like the taste of it. So I'm no help...

    Firstly - please don't think I'm too odd, I think necessity really is the father of invention!

    On the ward I was on last (surgical) we always had huge bags of chipped ice in the ward kitchen freezer. Since it was getting into summer and was so thirsty by the middle of the afternoon, I'd half fill a glass with milk, add sugar and coffee, stir like crazy and top up with ice. I've never made it at home, but it was soooo nice (and kind of what I was remembered for-everyone else thought it was a bit strange!)

    I'm boring in my taste! lol
    I like to make iced coffee the old fashioned way. Depending on how many glasses you're making; put a teaspoon per person, of coffee, into a shaker/blender, add a scoop of ice-cream, per person, enough milk to make a glass per person, crushed ice if you want, and blend until all combined. You can make the coffee as strong or as weak as you desire.
    As I said, boring and basic, but I love it! LOL

    You can do the same with Milo* too!
