Browse the beverage aisle of any store and you will discover chocolate milk mix, strawberry, vanilla, and malt, but very few other flavors are available. These mixes are somewhat ordinary, and they are not exactly cheap. Instead of buying expensive mixes to flavor milk, try the following new ways to enjoy one of the most popular healthy drinks. Adults as well as kids will love these tasty new beverages and the many new dessert possibilities they provide.
Use Flavored Coffee Creamer to Create a New Flavor
Coffee creamer is great for more than just flavoring black coffee. Liquid creamer is available in dozens of flavors, and it can be used to flavor ice-cold milk. Add as much or as little as desired according to personal preference. Gingerbread, mocha, and eggnog are especially delicious when added to an extra-cold glass of milk. For something really new and tasty, once prepared it can be used in desserts that call for milk. Try milk with flavor in pudding, on cereal, and more.
Add Coffee and Sweetener
Forget about buying expensive iced coffee. The article entitled How to Make Homemade Iced Coffee provides easy instructions. It tastes just as good as or better than store-bought varieties, and for far less money. Best of all, it can be made in absolutely any creamer flavor available. Check the dairy aisle of your local grocery store as well as the coffee aisle. The flavor options are many. When blended with crushed ice and whole milk and a little half and half it is refreshing and absolutely delicious.
Save Money with Homemade Chocolate Syrup for Milk
If chocolate milk is a preference, homemade chocolate syrup is a must. The article entitled How to Make Homemade Chocolate Syrup provides easy instructions. It contains only five simple ingredients. People that have tried it say this syrup used to flavor milk and top desserts tastes better than store-bought varieties. In any case it is far cheaper than ordinary syrup for chocolate milk. Give it a try, and flavor ordinary white milk, ice cream, and many desserts and other baked goods.
Add Grenadine to Add Cherry Flavor
Would you like to add the flavor of cherry instead of the usual strawberry to a tall glass of milk? Cherry has a much deeper flavor, and it is easy to prepare with the help of grenadine. Buy a bottle of grenadine from a liquor store or the alcoholic beverage aisle of your local grocery store, and add as much as desired to ice-cold milk. It looks as good as it tastes.
