When it comes to coffee, it’s what on the inside that counts. Sometimes our cup of coffee can be the reason that gets us out of bed in the morning. Some women cannot function without at least one cup of coffee in the mornings. But while you may love regular medium roast, sometimes it does the palette good to switch it up. Maybe you love specialty coffee but stopping at your favorite coffee shop isn’t always a possibility with a busy schedule and tight budget.
Here are five easy recipes to try at home to spice up your morning cup of #WomenThatDo fuel.
A mocha is the go-to order of many coffee-lovers at cafes but can easily wipe out the month’s coffee budget in one week. Instead, mix your favorite coffee blend with hot chocolate powder and brew together. Ta-da! A homemade mocha you will come back to time and time again!
An easy, on-the-go iced coffee recipe can be a life saver on the warm summer mornings when the last thing you want to do is balance a hot cup of coffee, your purse and your briefcase on your way to work. Before leaving the house, brew your coffee of choice, mix in your favorite sweetening agent, pour coffee into ice trays and freeze overnight. As you walk out the door, add milk and coffee ice cubes in a cup and you have delicious, iced coffee to get you through the morning.
If you want to get fancy, try this easy DIY syrup recipe that we love to add to our morning coffee! Mix half a teaspoon of dried or fresh lavender flowers with two cups of sugar and one cup of water on the stove and simmer on medium for around 10 minutes. Keep the syrup in a jar at room temperature and you will have the perfect mixture for the next few weeks. You’ll never spend $5 on a lavender latte again!
A dirty chai tea latte done right can quickly turn a morning from drab to fab. They are one of our favorite go-to drinks when we’re reaching for something spicy. This drink is perfect for a Saturday morning while you’re perusing your favorite newspaper. This recipe is changing the game on our morning cups of coffee and tea because it has the best of both worlds! Mix your coffee grounds with two tea bags of your favorite chai tea and brew. Boom! You are now your own favorite barista!
