One of the main parts of my everyday routine is my coffee time. Usually it starts in the morning with a cup of hot joe to wake me up. Throughout the day I have a cup here and there when I need to take a break and reward myself. A cup of coffee to me is a moment to relax amongst the chaos of the day no matter what is going on. Coffee has been a favorite past time of mine since I was sixteen working as a barista in local coffee shops in Michigan. Part of this was coming up with new coffee recipes that helped my love for coffee grow. One of the things that has made every cup of coffee more exciting for me is adding coffee syrups to the mix. Of course I use my regular half & half creamer, but adding flavored syrups has really amped up my coffee time and made creating new recipes fun!
I wanted to share one of the simplest recipes that I use almost every day during my beloved coffee time. This is actually the recipe that I used to get Mr. LMB to like coffee, so it must be good. There are a million different variations of this recipe so don’t feel stuck if you need to substitute for certain ingredients. If you are using the Tate+Lyle® Gourmet Beverage Syrups, you won’t be disappointed with whatever combination you come up with. Since 1878, Tate+Lyle® has been a trusted sweetener brand in the U.K. Their pure cane sugars have graced the finest tables in the British Isles and now some of their sugars and syrups are available in the US. Tate+Lyle® Gourmet Beverage Syrups come in three flavors: Vanilla Pure Cane Syrup, Hazelnut Pure Cane Syrup, and Caramel Pure Cane Syrup. The syrups are the perfect way to enjoy a delicious hot or cold beverage customized to your taste, anytime. They are also Fairtrade certified. Brilliant!To make the DIY delicious coffee creamer:
– 1 cup half & half
– 1 cup almond milk
– 4 tbsp. Tate+Lyle® Caramel Pure Cane Syrup
– 4 tbsp. Tate+Lyle® Vanilla Pure Cane Syrup
– 1 tbsp. cinnamon
You can store the extra creamer in a mason jar or right in the creamer dish in the refrigerator. I always use the expiration date on the half & half & almond milk as an expiration guide on the creamer. Just mix all of the ingredients together & enjoy! The vanilla and caramel add a velvety smooth flavor and sweet aroma, and they are the perfect way to reward yourself with coffeehouse flavor, anytime.
Some days I like my coffee sweet and some days I like it less sweet. I like the versatility I have with the syrups & all the different combination options I have right on my very own coffee cart. Having the syrups is good on the budget too because I’m less tempted to hit up my local coffee shop when I have all of this right at my fingertips.
