Keurig money-saving tip

Filed under: Beverages and Drinks — Tags: , , — ruralmomof3 @ 7:55 am


I decided to try something that my 11 y.o has been doing (peer pressure- lol) and I’m happily impressed with the results. My 11 y.o. likes using the Keurig but he doesn’t like strong coffee. . . so. . . . . he saves everyone else’s used k-cups in the refrigerator and reuses them! He brews the much lighter “second run” coffee and then mixes it with hot cocoa mix for an 11 y.o. version of a mocha.

Well, I decided to try a more adult version of the same and am quite excited to share it with you!

I brewed a used k-cup at the small size setting and added the following:
milk to fill the cup (coconut milk for me)
sweetener to taste (stevia drops for me)
a dash of cinnamon
a few drops of vanilla

The result was a mild coffee beverage with reminder notes of chai tea!! I likey!!
