Homemade Powdered Toffee Coffee Recipe

It's crazy to me that the days are going to start getting longer soon, yet we've only had one snow. It snowed over the weekend, but it was more like glitter falling from the sky and didn't really accumulate. Regardless, I am freezing in the evening. Everyone else is walking around in a t-shirt, and I'm in a hoodie and leggings with my teeth chattering.




I've started drinking a cup of hot coffee in the evenings while my husband drinks his tea. I used to be able to drink caffeine in the evenings, but I've really been limited my caffeine lately. I was drinking more than a pot of coffee each day, but now I'm down to 1-2 cups a day and no caffeine after noon.

I used to buy those little tins of powdered coffee mix, but they get expensive. They also have a lot of ingredients that I can't pronounce.

So I started making my own. I really enjoy this homemade powdered toffee coffee mix recipe. I made it with decaf coffee so I can have some in the evening.







While I wouldn't call this healthy, I would say that it's a healthier version for you. I used my homemade powdered coffee creamer recipe, which I made with half coconut sugar. The next time I make it, I'll make it with all coconut sugar though.

If healthy living is important to you, you do have a few options with the sugar. You could use coconut sugar for the brown sugar. This will sacrifice some taste, but it will be a lower glycemic index drink.

You could also omit the sugar and add agave nectar to taste as you make each cup.

If you need a sugar free toffee coffee, you could also use Splenda Brown Sugar or Truvia Brown Sugar. You'll have to read each label to see how much is equal to one cup.





Note that if you are sugar free, you'll have to substitute sugar in the powdered coffee creamer too.

This recipe uses coconut oil, which is also in the powdered coffee creamer. You don't have to put it in both recipes, but you certainly can. If you use powdered creamer from the store, I do recommend adding some coconut oil.

Coconut oil makes it creamier and gives it some froth, but it is optional.

INGREDIENTS




DIRECTIONS

STEP #1


Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. I put the entire jar in without a lid and cook for 30 seconds until the top starts to melt.


STEP #2


Combine the coffee creamer, coffee, and brown sugar in a bowl. Drizzle the melted coconut oil on top.


STEP #3








Blend the mixture with a food processor or bullet style blender. I used a bullet style blender and did I think 3 batches. It seemed to work easier for me to do it this way. The smaller particles dissolve in the water easier, so this step is important.

STEP #4


To use, heat up 8 ounces of water. Add 1-2 tablespoons of this homemade powdered toffee coffee mix recipe and stir.
