How I Keep My Sanity & Still Indulge #RemixYourCoffee #IC (ad)

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

It is no secret that I am running low on resources...mainly sleep and energy.  One of the only aspects getting me through lately is coffee.  Copious amounts of delicious coffee.  However, I am not one of those straight black coffee folks.  I like mine with some fluff and sweetness to it.  Driving to our local coffee retailer and dropping $5.00 on a drink is just not in the budget financially or time wise.  I am limited folks and honestly I NEED coffee to get me through, so here is how I still indulge and keep my sanity.

Folgers Flavors, #RemixYourCoffee, Easy Homemade Frappuccino

Look time is money people and it is a limited resource in my life.  I spend much of my time in front of a computer planning lessons, writing papers for graduate school, doing research, teaching, blogging and a whole host of other things.  I average about 4-5 hours of sleep a night between computer work and that major aspect of my life...parenting.  Pretty much from the moment I wake to the moment I go to sleep I am consistently moving.  It is insanity some days and the only thing that gets me through is coffee.

However, I got into a bad habit over the last year and dropped a ridiculous amount of money on those chain coffee stores.  I had to stop, but I still need my sweet coffee.  So I found these great Folger Flavors concentrated flavor enhancers and decided to create a coffee drink that I can enjoy.  This is saving me money, time and still allowing me my indulgence.

Folgers Flavors, #RemixYourCoffee, Easy Homemade Frappuccino

  • 6 Cups of Folgers Coffee (Brewed)
  • 3 cups of ice cubs
  • 2 TBS of sugar
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 squirt of each of the Vanilla and Caramel Folgers Flavors Enhancers
  • Whipped topping & Chocolate syrup (optional)

Folgers Flavors, #RemixYourCoffee, Easy Homemade Frappuccino
  1. Brew your coffee as you normally would, if you have time put this in the fridge to cool down, if not just put it in your blender once it is not scalding hot.
  2. Add the ice, milk, sugar & Folgers Flavors to the coffee in the blender and mix.
  3. Pour in your favorite cup and top with whipped topping and chocolate syrup
This recipe literally took me all of 5 minutes from brew to blended deliciousness.  I only drank about 2 cups of it and then put the rest in the refrigerator to grab and go in the mornings.  What is awesome though is that the Folgers Flavors do not need to be refrigerated and you can take them on the go with you anywhere.  I am keeping the Mocha flavor in my desk at work!
