You guys are already well aware of my deep and unwavering love for coffee. My sister loves to tease me that if we could only eat one food forever, mine would be coffee. (She’s not wrong.) I also have a signature coffee that I normally drink every. single. day. (Soy lattes, you are my reason for getting out of bed in the morning.) As with many of the more mundane, everyday things in my life though, the holiday season always inspires me to change my coffee up a bit, in an effort to make it just a little more festive. And today I thought I’d share with you three of my current favorite holiday coffee recipes. They’re all incredibly quick and simple to make, and you can easily get all of the supplies at your local Meijer.
1 cup coffee
1/4 c Silk Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Creamer
2 tablespoons crushed vegan peppermint bark (optional)
mini candy canes
Make coffee in a coffee pot and heat the Silk Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Creamer in saucepan on low until warm. Pour coffee in a mug and top with Silk Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Creamer. Add mini candy canes for a fun garnish. I like to drop a couple pieces of crushed peppermint bark in just to make it a little extra, but this is optional.
And if you want to skip the candy canes and peppermint mark, that’s totally cool, because the flavor of the Silk Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Creamer (which is new and also limited edition!) is so delicious that it’s all you need. If I’m in a hurry and don’t want to make a mocha, I just splash some in my morning coffee and it is instantly more tasty! I am a long time fan of Silk products, and this is no exception. Made with no dairy, gluten, carrageenan, or artificial colors or flavors, this plant-based creamer is smooth and creamy and so perfectly festive. Bonus: It is non-GMO project verified, and has 0g cholesterol or saturated fat per serving. Head to your local Meijer and grab some today!
Caramel Waffle Cookie Coffee
1 cup coffee
whip cream caramel syrup or honey 1 waffle cookie or wafer cookie
Make coffee in a coffee pot. Pour coffee and International Delight Caramel Waffle Cookie Creamer in a glass coffee mug. Top with whip cream (the more the better, man), drizzle caramel syrup or honey (my favorite) on the top, and add a waffle cookie or vanilla wafer coffee. This is an absolutely decadent coffee treat that I love to enjoy as a holiday dessert (while watched Elf on repeat).
I think it goes without saying that it is the International Delight Caramel Waffle Cookie Creamer that makes this coffee treat so next level. I mean, the fact that Buddy the Elf™ is on the front was enough for me to buy it, but it also tastes like sweet, sugarplum filled holiday bliss in an adorable container. It is rich, drizzly caramel on top of a toasted waffle cookie right in a creamer. And it’s available for a limited time at Meijer.
Cinnamon Coffeehouse Latte
3/4 cup coffee
If you have an espresso machine, go ahead and whip yourself up a real latte with these ingredients. But if you’re just a commoner like me, make coffee in a coffee pot and pour into a mug. If you don’t have a way to steam the Land o Lakes Coffee House Half and Half (I don’t!), heat in a sauce pan over low heat until warm and use a whisk or hand frother (what I use) to produce a foam, then immediately pour over coffee. Top with cinnamon and serve with holiday gingerbread cookies.
It’s a very simple coffee drink, but the Land o Lakes Coffee House Half and Half and light dusting of cinnamon are truly all you need to make this a delightful latte for wintertime and the holiday season. With 30% more cream than their regular half and half, Land o Lakes Coffee House Half and Half is extra creamy indulgence that elevates your everyday basic coffee into something extraordinary. And it is now available at Meijer!
I hope you enjoy these holiday season coffee delights as much as I have been! As I said before, you can easily grab everything you need to make them at your local Meijer. It’s like a holiday gift to yourself! Happy holidays!
