Vanilla Nut Coffee Recipe

Vanilla Nut Coffee

Vanilla extract or vanilla syrup is a flavour that is well known to most coffee drinkers, with Starbucks, Costa and most other coffee shops delivering steaming mugs of coffee with touches of vanilla.

The mild, sweet and truly delicious flavour of vanilla works so exquisitely with coffee because it’s gentle sweetening can be added to a mug of coffee without overpowering the original notes of the coffee.

This recipe combines the lovely taste of vanilla with other spices to bring you a mug of coffee that will take you straight back to cosy winter holidays. Quick and easy to make, this vanilla nut coffee recipe combines some of the most traditional coffee flavours using ingredients that can be found in most baking cupboards.

Vanilla extract or vanilla syrup is one of these ingredients. Easy to come by, this magical flavour can sweeten your coffee with just a few drops without the calorie count that comes from sweetening coffee with sugar or creamer.

Health benefits of vanilla have been widely researched and shows that vanilla can ease joint pains and other aches as well as increasing your mood. Vanilla has also been proven to increase digestive performance and can alleviate stomach aches, making it a great substitute for thicker sweeteners such as cream or syrups.
