I know it’s not leprechaun day anymore, but that does not stop me from drinking my favorite kind of coffee of all time — irish creme! And it couldn’t be easier to make 😀

Thanks to a friend of mine, I have a recipe for it! She used this recipe:

homemade irish creme

{from taste of home, by marcia severson}

about 5 servings

*can be iced or hot*

ingredients

— 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk

— 1 cup heavy whipping cream

— 1/2 cup milk

— 1/8 to 1/4 cup granulated sugar (to taste)

— 2 tbsp chocolate syrup

— 1 tbsp instant coffee granules

— 2 tsp vanilla

— 1/4 tsp almond extract

— 1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee

directions

1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients except the freshly brewed coffee. Blend until smooth. (And, remember, this won’t be a liquid-y creamer. It’ll be cream!) If you want to save it for later, you can store in the fridge.

2. For each serving, place brewed coffee in your favorite mug. Stir in 1/3 cup irish cream mixture. (Heat it up in a microwave, if needed.)

3. Voila!

  1. Ah, this sounds good! Unfortunately, I am not yet a coffee drinker (YET! I really hope to be) but my dad is a very big coffee-guy so maybe I can surprise him and make this! 😀
