Frothy Coffee Drink

I'm Erin Allmann. I love family, friends and food. A lot. I live in a teeny, tiny apartment in a place called Paradise with a wonderful boyfriend named Brett who cooks much better than I do. We both happen to be fantastic at eating and whenever we're not doing so, (which isn't all that often), we try to stay occupied outdoors. We're also two of the biggest nerds you can ever find, so excuse the occasional o-chem, bio, Harry Potter, or Star Wars reference.

Sometimes, we all have those days. You know the ones I mean.

umm.. yeah. so that's our pile of junk in the corner of our house.. please ignore it.

You press snooze one too many times. You stub your toe on the way out the door, and realize you forgot to put on deodorant. You rush to work with sleep still in your eyes and your hair matted to the side of your face. It’s not going to be a good day. And then someone says it, why, you have no idea, but it happens every time: “Wow, did you get enough sleep? You look super tired today.” …seriously? Everyone knows that’s code for ‘You look like crap, what the hell happened?’ Ugh. The day just keeps getting better, right?

Well, this is for those days. The days when you need something to make it better. To make your coworkers disappear for a while and create a nice little island of calm where you can sit for a while and wake up. Then you can fix your hair. And punch out your coworker. Or.. whatever. I don’t advocate violence. Just sayin’.

Frothy Coffee DrinkĀ 

Sorry guys, no measurements on this one. Use each ingredient according to your taste. If you use hot coffee, use less of it and use more milk and ice. Cold coffee, you can use more coffee and less milk and ice. Or however you like it. I like a ton of milk and sugar. My boyfriend likes a ton of coffee with just a little sugar and milk. To each his or her own!

P.S. You know you can grind coffee in your bullet, right? Just throw a tablespoon or two (or three) into the short cup, pop on the flat blade and pulse a few times. Whoo! Whole bean coffee keeps its freshness much better than pre-ground (it lasts especially long if you keep it in the freezer), so now you can buy whole bean coffee and grind it at home!

You’ll need:

one of those days..

  • coffee (If you want to plan ahead and make this extra yummy, I have a recipe here for cold pressed coffee. It’s fab. Make it and keep it in the fridge and use a bit as you go. If you use this, you don’t need a lot as it’s super strong. Otherwise, just make coffee straight into your bullet party cup. It’ll do.)
  • milk
  • chocolate syrup (or cocoa powder and sugar)
  • ice

Put it all in your party mug and blend-a-rooskies. Difficult, right? If you’re feeling crazy, I think it’d be delish to add some caramel (here’s my own personal fav. recipe) or whatever other flavors you like. Syrups will blend better than powders/granulated sugar if you are using cold pressed coffee. If you start with hot coffee, put the sugar and chocolate powder at the bottom of the cup before you pour in the coffee. It’ll dissolve right away. Drink and Enjoy!!
