This coffee drink mix is one my Mom has been tweaking and experimenting with for about a month now! I gotta say, that I've loved this past month of taste testing her results! lol We've made an iced version of it (*grins at Livi*) a couple times, and I personally like it better that way. ;) I thought you ladies might enjoy it...even if you don't normally like coffee, it's yummy (*cough* I'm one of those :D).
Mocha Espresso Coffee Mix
1/2 cup instant coffee (flavored or plain: plain is better) 1/2 cup sugar 2 cups instant dry milk powder 1/2 cup powdered coffee creamer 1 six-ounce box each: white chocolate pudding mix and vanilla pudding mix 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional: I preferred it without, but it does taste good with it)
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly: it's best to blend them together in a blender, but not necessary for yummy results. This recipe makes about a quart of the mix (we've not counted how many actual servings it is, but it's a fairly good amount).
To make the espressos: Mix 3 tablespoons of the mix with 7 oz. (or a regular sized coffee mug; 3 1/2 tablespoons if it's larger) of hot water. When I make it, I also add a spoonful of powdered sugar for extra sweetness, and a bit of milk for extra creaminess. :)
To make an iced version: Place 3 tablespoons of the mix, a spoonful of powdered sugar, 7 oz. water, and 10-12 ice cubes in a blender, and mix well. Once the ice is chopped, let it blend for another 2 minutes to make it smooth. For an extra treat, pour caramel syrup in the serving cups before you pour the iced espresso, and stir!
