Here is my recipe for a refreshing and warming cup of cardamom coffee!
Your favorite mug
Instant coffee: I like Nescafe Clasico or you can use your regular coffee
3-5 Cardamom pods
A spice grinder or a knife to chop the cardamom once it is removed from the pod
Sweetener of your choice: I use stevia and a little brown sugar
Milk, Cream or Half-Half
Milk frother, Optional
Open your cardamom pods and remove the seeds from inside(be careful cause they like to jump), grind the pods or coarsely chop them.
Place a pinch or two of the ground cardamom into your cup.(If this is your very first time trying cardamom go on the lighter side with adding the spice! You don't want to overwhelm yourself!)
Add 1 tsp(or two) of instant coffee to your mug.
Add your sweetener.
Then add your hot water(depends on the size of your cup and your particular directions) and stir gently. I usually do 1 tsp for 6 oz of water and 2 tsp for 12 oz and a larger mug!
I usually froth my milk while the Keurig is doing it's thing with the hot water!
So then add your frothed milk, cream or half-half.
Sometimes I like to put a tiny pinch of cardamom or light brown sugar on top of the froth but it is completely up to you!
Cardamom after it has been ground in the spice grinder!
A finished cup of cardamom coffee and the cardamom pods!
Enjoying a cup of coffee!
