There are so many ways to make coffee that even if I tried to name them all I would miss at least 7. With all of the coffee shops and at-home solutions available at grocery stores, I forgot how nice it was to create my own unique coffee combination. It is also significantly cheaper (or so my bank account tells me).
I know cinnamon is one of those things where you either love it or you want to bury it six feet under, but trust me on this one. You have to at least try it before you knock it.
I have linked some good coffees and creamers below in case you aren’t sure where to start 🙂
Coffee (a darker roast is better)
Creamer (of your choice)
1/2 Cup of Sugar
2 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
*1/2 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
Homemade Cinnamon Whipped Cream (recipe below)
*If you brew your coffee from a K-Cup, you can ignore the 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
If you don’t have a prepackaged K-Cup, combine however much coffee you want with the 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. The less coffee, the stronger the cinnamon, and vice versa.
Combine sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon in a bowl until thoroughly mixed. Save in a tupperware container.
Brew your coffee as usual, and right after it is done brewing, add a spoonful or two of cinnamon sugar and stir until dissolved. Add in however much creamer you want! (suggestions down below)
Top with your homemade whipped cream or top with regular whipped cream and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Emma Chamberlain Early Bird Blend
Seattle’s Best Portside Blend
Stumptown Coffee Roasters House Blend
International Delight Cold Stone Creamery Sweet Cream –
I cannot recommend this one enough! It is lactose-free but not entirely dairy-free. If you can use it you absolutely should.
Nut Pods French Vanilla Creamer
I have never tried this one, but according to my friend Eliza, she is a “Big fan!”
Five Farms Irish Cream
This one is another recommendation by my friend Erica, and she absolutely loves it! (It is alcoholic so 21+ please!)
Homemade Whipped Cream
1 Cup of Heavy Cream
1 Tablespoon of Powdered Sugar
1/4 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to whip the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Then, add in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Whip until medium-stiff peaks form (when you lift the mixing arms out of the cream, there are peaks but they do not stay pointed up), then pour into a tupperware container.
Store until you need to use it! It works best if used immediately or within a couple of days.
