Homemade Caramel Latte- Folgers Flavors

Folgers 6

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Mornings here can be described as many things. Sleepy. Busy. Lazy. Fun. Loud. Quiet. The list goes on. You never know what you’ll get during a morning at our house. 

One thing is for sure. Coffee is always involved. My husband enjoys his straight up, no frills, plain and simple- black. Me on the other hand, I like to change it up often. 

There was a time when I liked to add sweetener and milk. There was another time when I like to add sweetener and creamer. I get tired of things being the same sometimes so I like to find ways to create new coffee drinks.

The day I discovered milk frothers was a life-changing day (thanks to my mom!). Homemade lattes entered my life and it has never been the same.

These cool little bottles have also found a way to my heart! Folgers Flavors can be used at home or on-the-go and don’t require refrigeration. Because I don’t like to be a creature of habit, I’m thankful that Folgers Flavors come in 4 different flavors (Hazelnut, Mocha, Caramel, and Vanilla) to match any of my many moods. Most recently, it’s been a caramel mood.

In case you needed to know.

It’s easy to take your coffee and make it into a latte. Folgers Flavors make it even easier. You can use a little or use a lot, hot or iced, the choice is yours to create your own flavored coffee.

To make a Homemade Caramel Latte, here’s my steps. I started with plain black coffee. Not exactly espresso, but I’m not a straight black coffee drinker so it’s pretty strong for me.

Add a good squeeze of the Folgers Flavors Caramel Enhancer. I didn’t even add sweetener!

I frothed some of my favorite creamer and poured that on the coffee. Then topped it off with a little whipped cream and caramel sauce.

It doesn’t get much tastier than that for your morning! No matter what’s going on, I find peace when I’m drinking my lattes.

Simple Homemade Iced Coffee

There’s a definite time of day that if you were to come to my house and talk to me, I might just bite your head off. Don’t you just love these confessions? I’m sure that I’m not the only one with this issue. I’m talking about the moment in time before you’ve completely woken up and you have





It’s not because I’m an angry person. It’s not because I dislike you. It’s because I am just not a morning person. I never have been one and I don’t ever see myself becoming one. When I was in high school I can remember sleeping until 3 in the afternoon. Can I do that now? Absolutely not. Do I want to sleep that late now? Absolutely. Will it ever happen again? Absolutely not. Should I ask you another question and answer it for you again? Absolutely.

You’ve probably ordered some iced coffee at McDonald’s or Starbucks before. What did it cost you? An arm and a leg? Sounds about right. That’s such a rip-off considering what’s actually in it. Until recently I had always gotten mine at fast food places and thought wow this would be nice to have at home. Then one weekend my sister came up and stayed with us for a bit. (This is the part where I share with you how I slow I really am)

She walked up to my Keurig and made up a cup of coffee like normal. Then she grabbed her plastic wannabe fast food cup complete with straw and filled it up with ice. She poured the hot coffee over the ice and then poured a little creamer in it and stirred it all up. It’s almost as if a McDonald’s staff member appeared in my kitchen and created an iced coffee in front of me. I asked her if I could taste it and she handed it over. It tasted exactly like what you would pay $4 at the store. How did I never figure this out before? So insanely simple a concept that makes having your favorite coffee drink right from your very own kitchen.

And honestly, because this is such a simple recipe (not really even a recipe at all), I’m not going to even give this a box y’all. Here are the steps:

1) Make your coffee and pour it over ice.

2) Sweeten as usual.

3) Add creamer or milk.

4) Optional: Add a squirt of canned whipped cream and a few drops of chocolate sauce to make it fancy.


No need for a run to McDonald’s, Starbucks, or that fancy coffee shop around the corner.

From Spice Rack to K-Cup Holder {Before & After}

If you have a Keurig, then you are probably aware of the ungodly prices for accessories and extras that go along with it. Honestly, I’m just glad that the machines themselves have come down in price. If you don’t have a Keurig yet and have considered getting one, you might check out Amazon. They have decent prices on the machines and they also have a huge K-Cup sale on Fridays!

Chances are that you’ve seen the K-Cup carousels and the fancy little drawers for the Keurigs. Both range in price from around $25- $35 at most stores. Sure they are handy, but after the cost of all the K-cups you have to buy and the cost of the machine itself, who wants to shell out yet another $25 for that? Somebody who really needs a place to store their K-cups I guess.

I am just too cheap to pay for one of those, so I’ve made do with the box they come in.

Until now…

Goodwill is my hero. They have given me inspiration for a lot of things and now they have swooped in to save the day for my K-cup dilema! I found this empty spice rack at my local store for just $.99. To most, this would look like junk. One might think their spices wouldn’t fit its holes or think the color was all wrong. Or some might just have no idea what it is.

But I saw my new K-cup holder in this thrift store treasure. So I went home, cleaned it up a bit and then gave it a shiny new coat of spray paint to bring it into modern-day. Wow, what a difference!

The K-cups fit just perfectly and it’s not too big nor too small for my kitchen. Just goes to show that someone’s trash (or Goodwill donation) is someone else’ treasure!

Who needs a $25 K-cup carousel when you can repurpose a Goodwill spice rack for $.99?

Question of the Day: Do you have a K-cup holder? If so, what kind?
