5 ways to use leftover coffee

with No Comments


1. Make ice cream.

Homemade ice cream is divine and surprisingly easy to make with an ice cream maker. Add leftover coffee to a vanilla custard base for a decadent dessert. Check out this in-depth guideline to making dairy-based coffee ice creams of all types or this recipe for vegan cashew-based chocolate-coffee ice cream.

2. Get baking.

Many recipes for baked goods call for strong coffee to add a jolt of flavor and some dark color. Try making these Perfect Chocolate Coffee Scones or these Caffeinated Coffee Brownies. Learn how coffee can “enhance that rich chocolate flavor” in brownies, according to Bon Appétit. Add it to cheesecake or replace any liqueur with some strong espresso.

3. Use the freezer.

I found this cool recipe on Food52 for latte freezer pops and can’t wait to try them when the weather warms up – homemade popsicles made from leftover coffee mixed with almond milk.

4. Cook with it.

Turn it into decadent, luscious coffee pudding, courtesy of Not Without Salt. Stir it into oatmeal (baked or boiled) or rice pudding. Make mocha syrup for weekend waffles or pancakes. Add it to stew or chili in the crockpot. Mark Bittman has a yummy recipe for vegan espresso black bean chili that has so much caffeine he recommends using decaf if you’re planning to go to bed early. Use it for a marinade, like this Coffee-Marinated Skirt Steak.

5. Reheat!

I personally do not recommend reheat. However if you want to know more, please feel free to visit the link below.
