Instant Cappuccino Coffee

on November 11, 2015

I have had this recipe around so long, I can’t remember where it came from. It’s so old, it tells you to mix it in a blender instead of a food processor! This Instant Cappuccino Coffee is a nice warmer-upper to have for the fall and winter. You can snuggle up with it in front of the fire with a good book and let the cold winds howl, or enjoy it for your afternoon coffee.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Instant Cappuccino Coffee

1/3 cup non-dairy coffee creamer

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup dry instant coffee, either decaf or regular

1 or 2 orange flavored hard candies, broken up a bit (I used the kind with the hole in the middle)

Put ingredients into blender (I used a food processor) and process at high-speed until well blended.

Use 1 level tablespoon of mix with 3/4 cup boiling water.

Stir well and dollop with whipped cream and/or slice of orange.


This recipe doesn’t make a very big batch. You may want to double it as long as you’re taking out your food processor.


It’s a bit hard to see, but if you squint, you can kind of see the little bits of orange candy in the mix.


Coffee with orange is a very tasty combination.


I love to use decaf coffee for this so I can have a cup in the evening.


Obviously, you can dress this up or down, depending on how you’re feeling. It’s nice and creamy on its own, but if you want to “gild the lily”, as they say, you can add the whipped cream and/or orange slice. This is a delicious warm drink. You’ll love to cozy up with it at any time! Let the cold winds howl, I say!!
