Coffee Mate for Holiday Coffee and Dessert #UltimateCup

For the last two months I have had an obsession with Coffee Mate Pumpkin Spice coffee drinks. I had a Pumpkin Spice drink at a coffee house and was hooked. I knew I could make it at home for much less. When it became December my husband told me it was time to move on from Pumpkin Spice to a new flavor that was more Christmas season. I decided I would try the Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha and also make a coffee house style creation for my everyday creamer flavor, Hazelnut.

My son and I headed to Walmart for Coffee Mate creamer, items for my recipe and to look at a few items on my Christmas list. After gathering all the stuff we needed and more I headed home to make two drinks. One is a coffee house style coffee drink and the other a dessert.

Hazelnut White Chocolate Coffee #UltimateCup

Hazelnut White Chocolate Coffee

2 cups low fat Milk
1 cup Coffee Mate Halzelnut Creamer
1 cup White Chocolate Morsels
2 single serve packs of instant coffee
Whipped Cream for topping

In sauce pan heat milk, creamer and white chocolate morsels. Slowly stir until chocolate is melted. Add instant coffee, stir until incorporated. Pour into your cup top with whipped cream and enjoy!

I was inspired to make this coffee house style creation from the drinks I see people enjoying at my work from the coffee house that is next door. I see people relaxing and enjoying a white chocolate mocha and I knew I could make one at home even better since I would be adding hazelnut to mine. It turned out delicious and very affordable to enjoy any time I want!

Peppermint Mocha Coffee Chocolate Ice Cream

Living in California I am lucky enough to have sunny days that are even warm during the holidays. This means we still get to enjoy ice cream treats! To make a regular chocolate milk shake appealing to the adults that will be coming over for the holidays I added coffee, Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha and  candy cane pieces. I blended chocolate ice cream, Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha, instant coffee that I dissolved in the creamer and candy canes. After a blending I let the mixture set in the freezer in individual serving cups for 20 minutes. Topped with crushed candy cane, a little bit of whipped cream and inserted a candy cane for the perfect peppermint sweet treat for dessert.
