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 Recipes version 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. (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)
