Did you know that if you bought a fancy coffee everyday for a year  you would spend over $1300?! 
I know-sometimes it is so worth it. There is something about the smell, the buzz, and the coolness of a coffee shop, isn’t there? In fact I often bring my work to a coffee shop and indulge in a few great lattes each week. Often, however, I am at my home office with my little ole’ Keurig yearning for a “fancy coffee”.  I came up with this Vanilla Cinnamon Cafe Au Lait as a super easy solution for the home coffee enthusiast!

Here’s What You Need:
2/3 cup ff half and half
1/2 tsp vanilla (or more to taste)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (plus more for topping)
1 cup freshly brewed coffee

Here’s What You Do:
Put all the ingredients into the blender and then pour onto your coffee. Swirl some extra cinnamon on the top. You could easily swap out the vanilla for another flavor too. It’s cheap, it’s skinny, what more can you ask for?!

Kid Tip:
I am not  a fan of coffee for kids for obvious reasons, but have you heard about this latest Babyccino craze? Frankly do we need to be creating mini coffee snobs already?! But seriously, if you are wanting to jump on this band wagon you can create a babyccino by swapping out the coffee for a cup of warm milk.

Won’t you be a fan of Skinny Mommy on Facebook?!

    This is something I truly need to do….I don’t know why I don’t make more coffee creations at home.

  2. I agree- there is something about a coffee shop, but I only get one once every week or two weeks. The rest is home brewed and very yummy as well. I never do anything fun with my coffee though- I would love this though!

  3. Mmmm this looks just wonderful! I can’t believe how much a year of drinking coffee out adds up to! I know I always need to be more budget conscious about these things.
