    Flavored Coffee

    I am looking for recipes for dried flavored coffees, particularly vanilla and/or orange. I need something that is stable at room temperature, at least for a week or two. I cannot get vanilla powder where I live; can vanilla extract be added to ground (non-instant) coffee? Is there some way to dry orange peel and/or concentrated orange juice to make it shelf-stable? Thank you!

    Re: Flavored Coffee

    Brewed Orange Coffee

    1/3cup coffee (regular grind)
    1/2 tsps orange zest
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract


    Blend coffee and dry ingredients in a blender.

    Blend in flavoring and extracts.

    Scrape sides and blend 15 seconds more.

    Makes one 8-cup pot.
     
    Add sugar/sweetener and/or creamer as desired.

    To give as a gift: Place coffee mix in a filter. Place filter on a square of plastic wrap. Draw together with a ribbon.

    Re: Flavored Coffee

     I love flavored coffees but we treat ourselves to packaged ones only on special occassions. I think we as dollar stretchers can find ways to use what we have in our pantries to add to our regular coffee.

    The Dollar Stretcher agrees with an article on thrifty coffee additions.

    I did some searching and found some recipes online that others might like:

    Then go beyond just the flavor of the coffee:

    Sometimes things get buried here but thankfully those came up.

    With the price of coffee as it is, I am interested in trying some of these recipes instead of purchasing flavored coffee as I do to treat us.

    Re: Flavored Coffee

    You can mix dry pudding mix with store brand powdered creamer to get some good flavors.  Try butterscotch, vanilla, chocolate.  I add some dry instant milk to it too.  Sorry I don't have exact measurements but I use 1 box of instant pudding and about the same amount of creamer and about 1/2 as much instant milk.  I add some sugar to my coffee sometimes to sweeten it up a bit more.  Butterscotch is my favorite.

    You know, the powdered pudding mix suggestion gives me an idea... you could take cold coffee, put it in the blender with pudding mix and powdered creamer and make yourself a faux-Frappuccino.
