Here's one that I get requests for all of the time,
and that you won't yet find in
any book. This is a clone for Starbuck's "Lowfat
Creamy Blend of Coffee & Milk"
that you can now find in the all-too-puny 9
1/2-ounce bottles in most stores. Those
little bottles will set you back at least a buck,
but this Top Secret
costs a mere fraction of that. Plus, the recipe
actually makes enough that you can
get a pretty major caffeine buzz. Then, when you get
down to the "Tidbits" I'll tell
you how to clone espresso with a standard drip
machine and ground coffee. Cool!
1/2 cup fresh espresso
2 1/2 cups lowfat milk (2 percent)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dry pectin*
Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher or
covered container. Stir or shake until
sugar is dissolved. Chill and serve cold.
