We recently had the opportunity to gather some friends who we frequently mountain bike with so that we could all try Taste of Nature Bars. We picked these particular people because we knew that...
Pumpkin Spice Coffee-mate & Vanilla Iced Coffee
Connecting through coffee is a big thing for me. I love coffee shops and I enjoy coffee. To me, coffee symbolizes relaxation and just hanging out; enjoying the moment.
My husband and I like to sit out on our deck to enjoy our coffee. We talk about our days, we read books and we just while taking in the scenery. This is one of our favorite things to do.
Our coffee moments are truly moments of connection. We start our days this way and many times we end our days this was as well. We especially love fall when the weather cools and the leaves start turning a little. Our backyard is all woods with a small stream. It is very picturesque.
I was excited to try out Pumpkin Spice Liquid Coffee-mate because pumpkin just symbolizes fall to me so I love anything with the flavor. For my iced coffee this week, I paired the Starbucks Natural Fusions Vanilla Ground Coffee with the fabulous Pumpkin Spice Liquid Coffee-mate.
Making great iced coffee takes a few minutes but it is absolutely worth it. In fact, when I make it, I always make a little extra to enjoy over the next few days.
Here is what I did for my iced coffee this time. I used the Starbucks Natural Fusions Vanilla Ground Coffee and made it with my french press. I then added the coffee and Pumpkin Spice Liquid Coffee-mate into my mixing cup. Then I used my immersion blender (man I love that thing) to combine everything together. I poured an iced coffee for myself and for my husband. Then I stored the rest in an airtight container to enjoy over the next few days (just remember to shake thoroughly before enjoying again).
The french press makes the perfect cup of coffee and the immersion blender creates the perfect iced coffee concoction.
Our moments this week were spent talking about how great our new favorite drink is and then we decided to keep trying new flavors of creamers but perhaps visit this one again or at least once a week. We love connecting through coffee.
