Econo Chic: Homemade Flavored Coffee

I love coffee. I need to have it every morning in order to jump start my day but going to Starbucks or whatever coffee shop you go to every morning can get pretty expensive. So why not make your favorite coffee drink at home? Cheaper on the wallet and you get to control what and how much you put in it. Below is my favorite coffee recipe.

Cafe Vanilla Latte:

What you will need:
- Coffee
- Vanilla Extract
- Milk
- Cinnamon
- Sugar

Pour about half a cup of freshly made hot coffee into a coffee cup, followed by a 1/4 cup of milk, then 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Stir or used a wisp to stir everything together. After everything has been mixed add sugar to taste and stir again. I do the sugar last because with the vanilla the coffee already gets some sweetness/flavor to it so I like to taste it before I add the sugar to know how much to put in. I do not like my coffee very sweet, I like it almost borderline bitter.

Last but not least:

Enjoy your homemade goodness!

Play around with your coffee, add different flavors and see what you come up with. Mr. P sometimes makes me Godiva chocolate flavored coffee and it is yummmyy.

Ciao! xoxo
