Ah, coffee. The life force of the entire student population. It’s what warms you up during winters, and wakes you up during, well, all the time. But it’s ridiculous that everyone is just taking their coffee in the same ‘ol way. It’s high time we have some innovation. Here are 13 interesting ways to take your coffee that you may not have thought of. Give them a try.
1. Coffee Float
Add in a dollop of vanilla ice cream for a cool and sweet treat!
2. Buttered Coffee
Yes, you read that right. Butter in coffee actually can help you boost your energy in the morning! It’s called “bulletproof” coffee and is inspired by Tibetan Yak Butter Tea.
3. Mocha on Rocks
If you thought that an iced coffee in the afternoon was awesome, check this one out.
4. Iced Coffee Popsicle
Perfect for a hot summer day (or any day, to be perfectly honest).
5. Iced Toasted Coconut Coffee
This recipe calls for toasted coconut on the rim but you can add coconut milk in the actual beverage.
6. Irish Coffee
7. Espresso Tonic
Just add in six ounces of tonic water with some ice. Add in two ounces of espresso and stir! It’s ridiculously simple and it’s a great twist on your typical espresso.
8. Coffee Gummies
9. Vietnamese Egg Coffee
Add in egg yolk for a very rich drink that’s almost dessert-like.
10. Chocolate Coffee Truffles
These decadent little treats are sweet and savory, but still have a familiar hint of coffee-ness.
11. Coffee Macarons
If you want something interesting and crunchy and sweet, give these a go. Add in Nutella filling for maximum chocolatey goodness.
12. Coconut Cowboy Coffee
Add in coconut milk and chocolate syrup.
13. Coffee and Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
Use cacao nibs, coconut cream, almond milk, maple syrup, and chia seeds. What a delicious dessert!
