Coffee Foods for Those Chilly MonthsEveryone enjoys a hot drink when it’s cold outside. And what goes better with a hot drink than a warm sweet treat like a pastry or brownie? Cinnamon, maple, and of course chocolate and nutty flavors tend to blend really well with hot coffees. If you’re craving decadence you might try a traditional bear claw, a cinnamon-laden apple turn over, or even a maple banana nut muffin. Baked goods are always best when they’re made from scratch, but learning to bake like a pro takes skill and practice. You might want to check out some online cooking schools if you’re interested in taking your baking know-how to the next level.
Healthier options that still satisfy those taste buds might be a fruit and nut snack mix, or some cinnamon oatmeal at breakfast. Flavoring your coffee with hazelnut or mocha also enhances these combos.
Summery Coffee MatchesHot weather means it’s time to cool down with a nice iced latte or perhaps a caramel frappuccino for those of you with a hearty sweet tooth. Fruit can go great with coffee, especially if you’re watching that bikini figure. Peaches and berries taste great with coffee, and they’ll leave you feeling good too! If you have a little more time, you might try making a fruit salad, with fresh cantaloupe, strawberries, bananas, grapes, or whatever you have on hand. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top, add a biscotti, and you’ve got a healthy and tasty meal to go with your coffee! Lemony treats are also great with iced coffee, like lemon bars and muffins.
