Sometimes the best afternoon treat is a nice cup of coffee, and this Easy Afternoon Latte satisfies my cravings without having to use any kind of machine.
Remember this: “The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup”? I just got that melody into your head, didn’t I? Well, if you ask me, the very best part of waking up is that first delicious sip of hot coffee. There’s nothing quite like it. I am such a coffee lover that sometimes nothing sounds better in the afternoon than a delicious hot cup of coffee… or even better – a latte. Problem is that I don’t have and espresso machine. Heck – I don’t even have one of those single serving (pricey) pod machines. We just have your basic coffee pot, but its not worth it to me to grind the beans, get the filter out, brew a pot, and then clean the whole thing for a single cup of afternoon coffee. Enter Folgers instant coffee… ta da!
Know what the ingredients say on the back of the container? COFFEE. Nothing else. That’s exactly what I wanted to see. I mean, it can’t possibly get any easier, right?
For this easy afternoon drink, all I did was mix the Instant coffee with a little flavored creamer and some hot foamy milk to create the perfect afternoon treat. If this looks good to you, be sure to check out all the other amazing Folgers Recipes. Who knew, right?
