How do you take your coffee? I do not drink coffee without milk. Unless, I am extremely desperate for my caffeine fix.
I don’t need the sweet so have never added sugar in any form to my coffee. However, I cannot drink it black. My husband does that. He pours his cup, if he is in a hurry, he’ll throw an ice-cube in there to cool it down, and just drinks it.
That is just wrong.
The coffee is the wrong color!
My coffee has to be just the right color for me to really enjoy it. I used to use regular milk but now I use Almond milk, the color is admittedly a little different but still acceptable. I mainly switched to Almond milk to save on calories and because my husband and kids aren’t huge milk drinkers and Almond milk lasts quite a bit longer. Plus, I do like it!
However, I am not allergic to dairy so if we have regular milk (rarely), I can use it. If we are out of all types of milk, I have to search for more creative options.
For my Tiny Tip on A Thursday, I thought I’d share two of my creative options with you. Just in case, you must have your coffee a particular color as well and occasionally run out of milk.
The first option is one of my favorites because it makes the coffee feel coffee-house fancy! Whipped cream on top of the coffee!
I like to drink it through the whipped cream but you can certainly stir the whipped cream into your coffee until you find that perfect mocha color.
I discovered my second option just this past Sunday out of pure desperation. We were out of both almond milk and whipped cream! I was trying to suffer through a cup of black coffee but it just wasn’t working. I opened the freezer door for some reason and there was the answer!
Vanilla Ice Cream! I think this may be a fun option on a hot summer day even if I do have milk on hand. Move over, root beer. I made myself a coffee float!
How do you like your coffee? Or are you a tea drinker? I like my tea with a splash of almond milk as well but I don’t think I’d try the other options in tea.
