Homemade Cappuccino Mix Recipe
We’ve made this homemade cappuccino powder mix two different ways. First, as an instant mix recipe using instant coffee. For that recipe, you can simply stir some of the mix right into a warm mug of water. You can also use regular ground coffee instead of instant coffee which makes a perfect filler for those reusable K-Cups! I didn’t even know what those were until I bought a nice coffee maker for my hubby for his birthday (he’s the coffee drinker on our little farm!) and those K-Cups are expensive! So we bought the reusable cups from Amazon and when he wants some brewed cappuccino he fills it with the mix you will find below.
Homemade Cappuccino Mix
Cappuccino POwder Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Instant Coffee (or a Regular or Vanilla Ground Coffee for non-instant)
- 1 cup Sugar (can be regular, raw, coconut, etc)
- 1 1/4 cups Powdered Milk (or Powdered Coconut Milk for dairy free)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together until well blended. Pour into a jar or some kind of pretty storage container. If giving as a gift you can decorate with ribbon or another full festive garland.
To mix up your homemade Cappuccino Mix, add a few spoonfuls to a mug full of warm water. Stir until the mixture is dissolved. If using the non-instant ground coffee, add about 4 teaspoons into a reusable k-cup and brew as normal.
Who would you give this mix as a gift to?
