  • 1 cup instant coffee
  • Sugar (1/4 cup for the coffee mix and 3 cups for the creamer)
  • 3/4 cup Bavarian mint coffee creamer
  • 1/2 cup powdered non-dairy coffee creamer
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

Peppermint schnapps is optional in this recipe but adds a delightful twist to the classic mint coffee. For a non-alcoholic version, you may substitute it with more peppermint extract or skip it altogether.

Now that we have all our ingredients ready, it’s time to get brewing! Here’s a step-by-step guide to making the perfect Bavarian Mint Coffee.

1. Make the Mint Coffee Creamer

The first step is to make the mint coffee creamer. Combine 1/4 cup of Bavarian mint coffee mix, 3/4 cup of powdered non-dairy coffee creamer, and 1/3 cup sugar in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well to blend the ingredients thoroughly.

2. Brew the Coffee

Next, brew 2 cups of hot black coffee using your favorite Instant Coffee. You can also use Cold Brew from your favorite coffee shop for a super easy recipe.

3. Add the Creamer

While the coffee is still hot, add 1/4 cup of the prepared mint coffee creamer mix and stir gently until fully dissolved.

4. Complete Your Creation

After adding the mint cream or even another creamer you prefer like homemade vanilla variant or Delicious Dairy-Free Creamer or Irish Creme, completely satisfy your indulgence by adding some Peppermint Liqueur or chocolate syrup for a sweeter taste.

Serve immediately with chocolate mint fudge, creamy caramel sauce or other baked goods you find complementing a warm delightful beverage such as this.

Keep in mind that this recipe isn’t just limited to hot drinks; you can also enjoy it as a refreshing Mint Bavarian Iced Coffee on warmer days by utilizing any ice leftover from cold brews chilling in your fridge!

Oh, my dear coffee lovers, if you’re feeling adventurous, you might want to try some exciting substitutions and variations on this Bavarian Mint Coffee recipe. As versatile as it is, this recipe can be adjusted to suit your taste preferences and personal style. Let me share with you some of my favorite alternatives that will delight your palate.

First, let’s talk about the coffee creamer. While I used powdered non-dairy creamer in this recipe, feel free to use any other creamer variation that you fancy. You could swap it for a dairy-based creamer, like heavy cream or half and half, or any flavored creamers that you prefer- vanilla, hazelnut, caramel.

Another way to infuse some oomph into your mint coffee is by substituting mint extracts with peppermint schnapps or other liqueurs like Kahlua or Baileys Irish Cream. These ingredients add a grown-up touch to the drink and provide an alluring aroma that invigorates the sense of smell and taste.

If you’re looking to jazz up your hot black coffee, try adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder or creamy caramel syrup instead of the traditional sugar. It’s worth a shot!

For chocolate mint enthusiasts, you can make a Chocolate Mint Fudge flavor by mixing in hot cocoa mix with some instant coffee granules. Serve it hot or chilled over ice.

Nowadays, camping has become a trendy way of exploring the great outdoors while still enjoying the best cups of joe! So why not take this recipe camping? Pack instant coffee packets and powdered non-dairy creamer in an airtight container for an easy outdoor treat.

And lastly, if you want to have some fun playing with different types of milk, go ahead! Instead of using regular milk or heavy cream, try almond milk or coconut milk instead. They’re excellent milk substitutes with added health benefits!

Remember that there are infinite ways to customize this recipe to fit your liking, so don’t be afraid to experiment and explore the flavors that entice you. Enjoy, my good fellows!
