I’m on a roll here with recipes.Â My sister, Debi, who is in the non-blogging minority in my family, has a recipe for a really delicious Cappuccino mix.Â This is quite yummy for these cold winter evenings.Â Here it is:
1 cup instant coffee (You can use decaf, if you’d like)
2 cups coffee creamer (I use the nonfat type)
1/3 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1 tsp. cinnamon (I leave this out – I’d rather not have the cinnamon flavor)
Mix together.Â Use 4 tablespoons per cup of hot water.
Variation: Use different flavored coffee creamers for different flavors of cappuccino.
Okay, let the snow and ice storms come.Â You’re ready to face them with this recipe.Â Â
Oh?Â You’re not a coffee/cappuccino drinker? Okay, here’s a tea recipe from my mother.Â This recipe has been around for DECADES!Â I remember drinking it as a kid.Â It’s wonderful.Â My daughter gave me a jar of the mix for Christmas.Â It is SO good.
INSTANT SPICED (RUSSIAN) TEA
1 1/2 cups Tang
1 cup lemon flavored instant tea
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Mix thoroughly and store in a covered container.Â Use 1 to 3 tsp. to a cup of hot water.Â WONDERFUL!
