Coffee recipes

Okay guys I have been working on a series on periscope on diy coffee drinks.  I love making my own coffee drinks at home because it not only is crazy cheaper but I can make big batches for the family and make substitutions for healthier options. For instance you can exchange full sugar syrups for sugar free and substitute allot of the pudding mixes I use for sugar free versions if your dietary needs call for it, you can also use any dairy or dairy free product I usually use a dairy free version for hubby using soy or almond milk.Everyone wanted me to post the recipes where they can reference so here we go.
First off most drinks start with cold press coffee so Here is a video tutorial on making that..

Then you go from there
Sweet cream.
This s a easy sweet cream I have talked about in the past take a jar and throw in a can of condensed milk and a can of evaporated milk shake and store in fridge

Iced smores mocha:
cold press coffee
mallow cream
chocolate syrup
cream/milk/creamer of your choice
chocolate instant pudding mix
pour cold press into blender cup til 3/4 way full add enough cream, milk, creamer what ever you like til about a inch bellow the full line, then add a heaping spoon of mallow cream a dash of chocolate syrup and a table spoon of chocolate instant pudding mix blend then pour over ice. 

TO make this a blended Frappuccino version add all the ingredients except mallow cream blend then add heaping spoon of mallow cream and blend just a bit so you still get chunks of delish mellowness..(yup that is a word..mellowness)

Starbucks pink drink
white grape juice
coconut milk
freeze dried strawberries
crystal light strawberry lemonaid squeeze consintrate(or strawberry mio type of your choice)

To make this one you pour 2/3 a jar with white grape juice then add the rest with coconut milk  toss in a handful of freeze dried strawberries and a few sliced up fresh ones  I toss a tiny TINY squirt of a strawberry lemonaide crystal light liquid and screw a lid on the jar shake like crazy then pour over ice.
Green tea Frappuccino
matcha powder
vanilla instant pudding powder
To make blended fill up with ice pour milk over the add 1 to 11/2 T of matcha depending how strong you like your green tea flavor (I love the trader joes pictured here) then 1T of vanilla instant pudding mix and blend.  If you want a iced green tea latte then do same steps just don't add ice in the cup just blend then pour over ice after
If you don't know about matcha you should look it up because it is amazing for you tons of antioxidants and better for you then just green tea because you aren't just drinking the water it is steeped in but actually ingesting the leafs and it gives you a great even energy with out the crash.  It also is known to help aid in weight loss (though I doubt in Frappuccino form lol)

Here is a video tutorial on the Carmel ribbon crunch Frappuccino.
cold press coffee
cream. milk, creamer
butterscotch instant pudding mix
salted carmel syrup
heath crunch bits

Iced Nutella mocha

Cold pressed coffee
chocolate syrup
creamer ,milk what ever
hazelnut syrup
pour cold press over ice until mostly full add some kind of cream, milk and then chocolate syrup like you are making chocolate milk and then a splash of hazel nut syrup, mix and enjoy..

Oreo snowdrift.
cookies and cream instant pudding mix (or vanilla)
fill glass with ice pour milk enough to cover ice. add 1T pudding mix a few oreos and blend this is a fav drink of my kidlets from caribou coffee

I will be making more drinks and adding videos but mostly periscoping them my name on periscope is sweetaimee81.  Join me over there and on ig to get your coffee fix.  The fun thing about periscope is if you catch it live you can interact and ask questions and introduce yourself.  Well off to spoil the hubby for fathers day..Enjoy

  1. Thank you so much for sharing these with us Aimee. I'm currently loving the Iced Nutella Mocha. And the sweet cream is perfect, I've started adding it to my morning coffee.
