Sometimes all you need to calm your frayed nerves and escape the frantic pace of a busy day is a nice hot cup of creamy cappuccino. Everything is so fast-paced these days, and sometimes we just need to just sit back, relax and smell the coffee – and of course, you’ve got to drink it too! We have a smooth, creamy cappuccino formula that is perfect for those stressful days and is just what you need to unwind.
This recipe calls for warmed heavy cream rather than the usual steamed milk used in ordinary cappuccino formulas. The thicker consistency of the heavy cream is what gives this recipe its creamy effect, while the added whipped cream serves as a decadent bonus that will bring a little more joy to your day.
Life is too short to not have great coffee, so grab your favorite mug and the ingredients below and lets get started with making your delicious cup of Creamy Cappuccino.
Ready in: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 serving
2 teaspoons instant coffee
½ cup boiling water
½ cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons whipped cream
Microwave-safe measuring cup
Mugs (for serving)
- Add the instant coffee to your mug and pour in the boiling water. Mix well until the coffee is fully dissolved.
- Microwave the heavy cream in a microwave-safe cup, uncovered, for one minute on high, or until the cream is just heated. Remove from the microwave and use your whisk to whip the cream until it starts to become frothy – about one minute of vigorous whipping. Be careful not to over whip the heavy cream, or it will start to become lumpy.
- Fold the whipped heavy cream into to the mug with the coffee mixture and sweeten with sugar. Top with the whipped cream, and there you have a creamy cappuccino!
- At this point, you could add a pinch of cinnamon for a spicy taste, or a pinch of nutmeg for a nice nutty flavor. If chocolate is your preference, dust with a little cocoa powder to zest up your creamy cappuccino. Some people might like their coffee a little sweeter, so feel free to add another teaspoonful of sugar if you’d like.
