Root For Your Team With These Football Themed Coffee Drinks
Football season is reaching peak intensity and the best way to keep up with the excitement is with a delicious cup of coffee. Pull up a seat in front of the big screen TV, flip the channel to the big game, and enjoy one of these awesome football themed coffee drinks.
1. Turf Latte
No, there's not any actual Astroturf in this drink, but the green color is just as vivid as the football field.
- 1 teaspoon green tea powder
- 1-3 cups hot water
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup frothed milk.
Put the green tea powder into a large mug and slowly pour the hot water on top, stirring as you do so. When the powder is completely dissolved, mix in the sugar and vanilla extract. Finally, use your Mr. Coffee® Milk Frother to froth the milk. Pour the froth on top of the latte in stripes to resemble the yard lines on a football field. Serve and enjoy.
2. Mochaccino With a Helmet
You don't want to play football without a protective helmet, so maybe you need to protect your coffee as well. This mochaccino recipe with a chocolate helmet is perfect for watching the big game.
- 2 cups coffee, brewed
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 large milk or dark chocolate bar, cut into circles.
Use your Mr. Coffee® Electric French Press to brew up a rich dark roast coffee. Stir the milk and cocoa together in your Mr. Coffee® Milk Frother and use the warm milk setting to get the perfect temperature. Pour the coffee into a mug until it's three quarters of the way full. Fill the rest with the cocoa milk mixture. Finally, top with the circular piece of chocolate. Serve with a spoon to break the chocolate.
