I am obsessed with coffee. I am a coffee addict.
There. I said it. Can we move on?
Here’s the thing. While I am obsessed with coffee, I am pretty cheap. I hate paying money for Starbuck’s and other coffee shop coffees. I do it occasionally, but I would rather pay the extra money for some good bagged coffee and beans.
And I will pay extra for some delicious coffee creamer too.
But, my one indulgence…Wait. Let’s re-word that. ONE of my indulgences is a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks. I love the strong coffee with the creamy caramel. And the froth. Oh so delicious.
A couple years ago I learned about Espresso Powder. I buy a jar of this at least once or twice a year. It’s not only great in today’s recipe, but also good in these No Bake Cookies, these Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cookies, Tiramisu, and some Mocha Cupcakes.
In today’s recipe, I added the espresso powder for not only the extra boost of coffee flavor, but it also froths up the coffee creamer. Granted, when adding it to your coffee you lose the froth, but the flavor is incredible.
And because you’re making this creamer at home, you can feel good about what you’re drinking! I use fat free milk and fat free sweetened condensed milk to cut a few calories. Of course then I add 1/3 cup caramel and I’ve achieved balance. While I enjoy it with the fat free milks, it’s even creamier if you use the regular sweetened condensed milk and whole milk.
