Cappuccino Mix

It's easy to make and a lot cheaper than store-bought. I love this stuff. To me it is not a cold weather drink only, I love to wind down at the end of the day with a cup and either a good movie or book.



  • 1 1/3 cups instant coffee, with or without caffeine
  • 1 1/2 cups plain powdered coffee creamer
  • 2 cups hot chocolate mix, reg. or sugar-free
  • 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg


Mix well and store in air-tight container.

To use, mix 3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water

I can hardly wait to try this. For Christmas I put homemade spiced tea mix and homemade hot chocolate mix in decorative jars (small canning jars or special holiday jars), add directions, and give them as gifts. They are great for teachers, co-workers, drop-by guests, etc. This Christmas you can bet I will give Cappuccino Mix!

This is the sort of "Gifts From the Kitchen" that we

enjoy making and giving too. There are so many

small kindnesses that we can do to make other

people's lives a little happier and better and to us,

that's what Christmas is all about.

Thank you for this wonderful addition to our list of

"gift goodies". All it needs is a pretty little card with

the instructions to go with it. Maybe a sweet red or

green ribbon and a baby pine cone.:-)

Thumbs Up!

What a great idea! I am diabetic and cannot find sugar-free flavored coffee. Thanks a lot.

Makes a great gift. I drink this when I am craving something sweet!


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups non-fat dry powdered milk
  • 16 oz. French vanilla non-dairy coffee creamer
  • 1 cup instant coffee
  • 2 cups hot chocolate mix


Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.

Put the ingredients in pint size jars (or whatever size you want). With a pretty ribbon, attach a recipe card listing all the ingredients. Also, state on the card: add 3 heaping teaspoon of mixture to a cup of boiling water. Stir and enjoy.

For a special treat, I also top with Cool Whip or whipped cream.

This gift of cappuccino,is often request by friends I have given it to before. So easy and really makes a great gift.

Hi Dorothy,

I was wondering approximately how many cups (8 oz cups) does this recipe make? It sounds great for Christmas gifts for those of us who love Cappuccino. I do. Ha!

Thank You

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day!

Hi, this makes a Big batch of cappuccino. It will make about 160 cups if you use 3 teaspoons in each cup. My husband likes it with more mix, so at that rate, we will get fewer cups, but it still is alot of cappuccino. I usually put mine in pint jars, so that each gift contains enough to last for quite some time. Hope you try it, it is always a request at Christmas time! Thanks for asking. Dorothy W
