Today’s the last day of November and we all know what that means; the holiday season is really about to heat up.
But along with all the joy and splendor that comes with December and winter, there’s one thing that we think makes the month even more magical— holiday flavored coffee. Tis the season for gingerbread lattes and peppermint chocolate-chip frappuccinos now.
However, we know that a good portion of the money people will spend during December will go towards holiday items for the house and gifts. And at then end of the day, that sugar cookie iced coffee may not be in the budget anymore.
But fear not, because where there is a secret recipe, there is a copy cat that taste just as good.
So for every one of your holiday coffee favorites, we’ve found their copy cats to save you a few nickels and dimes.
For all the Starbucks lovers: nothing should deter you from indulging in your seasonal peppermint mocha. However, when you’re on a budget, it can be kind of hard to satisfy that craving. But don’t fret, Food.com has a Starbucks peppermint mocha recipe that will do just the trick.
It’s not winter without the taste of gingerbread on your tongue. But if you’re not too keen on paying more than $3 for a cup, finding a copy cat recipe would be extremely beneficial. And luckily, we found one to help you out.
Of course we also understand that not everyone likes the standard flavors of the holidays. So for those who crave something a little more nutty and refined, here’s a hazelnut macchiato recipe to fulfill all your needs. It’s also a skinny recipe so it’s even healthier than the standard one. Can we say double threat here?
Eggnog anything is just a classic in December. So naturally, we had to put down an eggnog frappuccino recipe. It’s that one Frappe that’s on everyone’s holiday bucket list and it’s just not fair to leave it out.
And of course, there’s always someone who just likes a nice good cup of Christmas coffee. Rather than just peppermint or gingerbread, they want it all. So we found a recipe that has all the magic of the month incorporated into one cup of perfection.
Isn’t it a good feeling to say you’ve had your holiday coffee at the fraction of the price?
