Homemade Coffee and Tea Recipes

Homemade Flavored Coffees

Swiss Mocha Coffee Mix

1/2 cup instant coffee
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
2 T cocoa
Combine all Use 1 tablespoon for each mug of hot water.

Homemade Cafe Vienna Coffee Mix
(This is my personal favorite.)

1/2 cup instant coffee
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
1/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup store bought instant butterscotch or vanilla flavored pudding mix (optional)

Measure all of the ingredients into a clean, dry bowl. Use a fork to combine everything evenly. If you are ambitious, you can powder everything in a blender. I don’t do this. You do get really impressive results from it though, and it is easier to do than one would expect. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or a pretty jar. Makes 2-1/2 cups.

To Prepare: Place 2 tablespoons of dry Cafe Vienna into a coffee cup. Add hot water to fill up the cup (about 3/4 cup hot water). Stir and serve.

Instant French Vanilla Coffee Mix

1/3 cup instant coffee
1 cup instant dry milk powder
1/2 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. You can also process the mixture in a food processor or blender for 10 seconds or so to make the mixture more powdery. Store in jar or other covered container.

To use: Put 1/4 cup of the mix in a coffee mug. Fill the coffee mug with hot water (about 3/4 cup to 1 cup water). Stir and enjoy.

BELGIAN HAZELNUT CAFE

Grind the instant coffee into a powder, then mix it together with the rest of the ingredients. (I actually put all the ingredients in the grinder but mixing them with a whisk works just as good). To serve, add boiling water to 2 heaping tablespoons of mix!
