Coffee is one of those things that we just can’t get out of our system. Here in the office, many of us need that burst of energy so we can get through our workload for the day.
While we love our black coffee and/or lattes, there are also other recipes that you can try at home. You won’t even need expensive kitchen tools (like the ones in cafés) to make them. We listed some that are hot and cold so you can start sprucing up your mornings as soon as possible!
This coffee is considered keto-friendly because it’s made with healthy fat from the butter and coconut oil. Other variations include heavy cream or coconut milk for added flavor.
1. Brew coffee.
2. Pour the coffee, butter, and coconut oil in a blender.
3. Blend on high for 30 seconds.
4. Drink and enjoy!
Hot Rum Coffee
I recently discovered a café that served coffee with rum as part of their Christmas promo. Now that it’s not on their menu anymore, it might be time to make it myself. (Drinking this in the morning is optional—unless you want to get an alcoholic buzz early.)
2 cups coffee
3/4 cup amber rum
1/2 cup half-and-half, heated
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp cardamom, ground
1/8 tsp nutmeg, grated
1. Combine the coffee, half-and-half, sugar, cardamom, and nutmeg in a pitcher.
2. Pour small amounts of rum in mugs (or a mug if you’re drinking alone) then pour the coffee mixture on top.
3. Stir the mixture gently.
4. Top it with grated chocolate if you want a little sweetness.
Thai Iced Coffee
If you love Thai iced tea, then you might be into this too. This coffee drink is made with condensed milk, giving it that signature sweetness and creaminess. (Many would compare this to Vietnamese coffee. But the difference is that Thai coffee has sugar in addition to condensed milk.)
2 cups hot coffee
4 to 6 tbsps sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup evaporated milk or heavy cream
Sugar to taste
1. Pour coffee in a mug or pitcher.
2. Combine condensed milk with the coffee and stir well.
3. Add ice cubes and refrigerate for one hour or more. You can get up early to do this or do it the night before.
4. Serve over ice and top the drink with a few tablespoons of evaporated milk or heavy milk. You can also add sugar to taste.
