I must say… once in a while I crave a good fresh brewed cup of coffee! This past summer I was visiting my Nana in the Cape when she brewed some coffee and I had nothing to lighten it up with. I was worried at first, all I remember is seeing my dad drink that black coffee and trying a small sample and spitting it out right away!! I did not like the bitterness.
Well, to make a blog story short, I loved the coffee black!! I had two cups! From then on I get my coffee black (maybe season it with a little cinnamon).
Like treating yourself to dessert, I like to treat myself to a cup of coffee with some soy or almond milk once in a while.
Thanks Julie for the french press :)
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened original
1 packet hot chocolate
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. espresso
1 cup french press brewed coffee
In a small saucepan, dissolve the hot chocolate in the almond milk. Add the vanilla extract and espresso and bring to a simmer.
Meanwhile, brew the coffee in the french press.
Add the coffee to the small saucepan and let cook 2-4 minutes to thicken and reduce slightly.
Divide between two mugs (or drink it all!). Enjoy.
The best part? It’s not 5-7 dollars!!!
