Give this a try! All you've got to lose is standing in line and shelling out the bucks for your fave coffee drink! This is from Betty Crocker. Seriously, this is great. Feel free to change the flavors of the non-dairy liquid creamer, and try using nutmeg instead of the cinnamon. Or try both! Get inventive!

- 1 1⁄2 cups fat-free hazelnut-flavored nondairy liquid coffee creamer
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 8 cups milk

- ground cinnamon, if desired (optional)

Very good, easy and refreshing coffee beverage. Really hits the spot and would be great on a hot summers day. I reduced the measurements as I was only making it for one. I opted not to garnish with whip cream, however I did sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. I also used coffee from my press rather than instant. Thanks for posting!
