Every once in awhile I brew a pot of coffee that turns out too weak. I don’t like to just toss it down the sink so I’ve found a couple of ways to use the coffee that work for me.
I have a can of an instant cappuccino drink that I bought on sale and don’t really like by itself, but a spoonful in a cup of weak coffee transforms both into a delicious drink!
Make a coffee float with a little ice-cream and your weak coffee.
Make a blended drink with one or more of the following:
- peanut butter
- milk, cream or half and half
Use in place of water when baking a chocolate dessert.
Use the coffee in place of water when making gravy. The end result is a subtle smokiness that doesn’t taste like coffee at all.
