Creamy Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

An easy flavored coffee just as tasty as the expensive stuff from the coffee shop. Quantities are a little vague because I'm not sure how my favorite, huge mug scales down to smaller cups -- use your sense of smell to find proportions that are flavorful, but not too candy-sticky because this is coffee to go with dessert rather than to substitute for the dessert. :) Since I like flavored coffees in the evening I usually use decaf -- brewed strong. Most of the prep time is brewing the coffee.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put milk into the cup. Heat gently in the microwave about 30 seconds -- just to take the chill off so the coffee won't get cold too fast.
  2. Stir cinnamon and vanilla into the milk (cinnamon goes into the milk easier than into the coffee).
  3. Add coffee and sugar/Splenda. Stir well and enjoy.
  4. Note: You can use a chunk of cinnamon stick in the cup instead of the ground cinnamon if you prefer.

mmmmmm....perfect for a chilly Fall evening. I can't believe I never thought to heat the milk I use in my coffee before. That's a really great tip. Loved the vanilla and cinnamon combo. I used 1/3 C. of milk, since my coffee mugs are pretty big, and added 11/2 t. of sugar. So good! Thanks for posting.

Flavorful, easy and very satisfying! What with this tasting as good as what we get at the local barista, this recipe becomes both a money and time saver. Made as written and would not change a thing. Thanks for the post.

Made this for my teenage daughter one night as she was up late studying. I added a lot of milk, and also some French Vanilla Creamer as she likes her coffee less coffee-ish. She really enjoyed it and we'll be making this the next time she's up late studying too!
