I love fancy mocha coffee like you can get at those coffee places, but really can't afford it. I also have to take a fiber supplement daily for my health. I was getting the plain flavored powdered kind so I could hide it in my juice or something, but one day my husband brought home orange-flavored fiber supplement by mistake. I opened it without my glasses on so I couldn't exchange it.
I was sad, but then I got a strange idea. I remembered those chocolate "orange slice" candies my mom had bought me every Christmas. So I poured my teaspoon of fiber at the bottom of my coffee cup, added a spoonful of chocolate drink mix (generic), and then the regular amount of instant coffee, sugar and creamer; then hot water and stirred vigorously. I was worried it would taste strange, but it was so delicious!
Now I have a great frugal way to "take my medicine" while waking up in the morning, and I'll never have to pay $4 or more for a fancy cup of coffee again! They also have chocolate flavor, I guess, so you could just go chocolate flavored coffee with your fiber hidden in it too. What a delicious way to save money and help your digestive health at the same time!
