Don’t let living easy on a Sunday morning only be a distant dream. Whether you’re gearing up to restart your week or relishing in the end of it, enjoy your caffeine fix by turning your coffee cup into one of these tasty treats without ever leaving the comfort of your home:
Coconut Cowboy Coffee: Brew your normal cup of coffee, and add in a tablespoon or two of coconut milk. Mix it together before topping your mixture off with a small dose of chocolate syrup. This sweet goblet of goodness dresses up your normal fixture without being over-indulgent.
Coffee Tonic: This bubbly brew is perfect for a warm Sunday morning. Choose your favorite cold-brew coffee (or make it yourself by coarsely grinding ¾ cup of beans and soaking them in 4 cups of cold water over night - pour through a cheesecloth and add ice)! Simply add anywhere from 2 tablespoons to ¼ cup of tonic, and you’re set for a refresher before you know it!
Salty Satin Surprise: In the mood for taking your coffee differently, but don’t want to spend the time on concocting something intricate? Try this - simply add one tablespoon of sea salt to your favorite cup of coffee and stir. This takes away some of the bitterness and adds a pleasant aftertaste.
Coffee Bubble Tea: Boboa lovers - this recipe is for you! When you’re really in the mood, you can make your own bubble tea with coffee! Take ⅛ cup of tapioca pearls and boil them (the packaging will usually give specific instructions regarding time); add 1 shot of espresso and 1 teaspoon of sugar; pour over ice and add milk if desired - don’t forget to drink using a Boboa straw!
Bulletproof Coffee: The easiest way to dress up your coffee comes from two ingredients you likely already have on hand. Pour your cup of joe and just add 2 tablespoons of grassfed butter and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. These smooth additions go a long way!
Eggstra Strength Coffee: This twist on your beverage is not only tasty, but also good for your digestive track! Blend two eggs (or egg whites) until liquid smooth and add to your coffee in lieu of milk or cream. To add some savory flavor, sprinkle your choice of honey, cinnamon, cocoa or turmeric on top and mix!
Coffee-Candied Bacon: Ready to take your caffeine out of the cup and onto the plate? This indulgent breakfast treat is full of all of your favorite fixings:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Lay 12 oz. of bacon slices out on the baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix together ⅓ cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of finely ground coffee and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.
3. Spread the coffee and sugar mixture on the slices of bacon, flipping to coat both sides.
4. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the sugars caramelize and the bacon gets crisp. Sprinkle on a bit of black pepper to taste. Allow the bacon to cool for a few minutes and then enjoy!
