Ask Miserly Moms: Homemade Cappuccino

by Jonni McCoy


"I was wondering if you would mind passing on your recipe for homemade cappuccino to me. Thanks so much, Dawn "

Having homemade coffees on hand is nice for a quick hot drink, and makes a great gift for others, too. Put some in a Mason jar and tie a decorative ribbon around the neck. Tie on a card with the name of the contents and how to mix it.

Here is the cappuccino recipe that you asked for, as well as some other recipes for instant coffees:

Instant Cappuccino Mix

  • 1/2 cup instant coffee
  • 1/2 to 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 c. instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1 tsp. dried grated orange peel
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together in the blender. Wait for the dust to settle after turning it off. Store in an airtight container. Use 2 T. per cup of hot water.

Cafe Au Lait Mix

  • 2 c. instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c. instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Blend together in a blender. Store in an airtight container. Use 1/4 c. mix to 2/3 cup hot water.

Swiss Mocha

  • 1/2 c. instant coffee
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. instant nonfat dry milk
  • 2 T. cocoa

Mix together in a blender. Store in an airtight container. Use 1 T. to 6 oz. hot water
