My Coffee Solution for Pregnancy

Morning coffee.  A former staple in my life that I swore I could never function without.  Funny how easily things in your routine start to change when you introduce a wee fetus into your life.  Giving up the morning caffeine has not been all that bad.  That doesn't mean I don't still envy the smell of coffee though and recently have been wanting a little taste for myself.  




We have a regular, full pot coffee maker in my house and I don't want to force anyone else into decaf, so I broke down and got myself a canister of instant coffee.  It was kind of gross.  I guess everyone has their own taste but this by no means was my preference.  But don't worry, I found the magical solution.  I started mixing a teaspoon of the instant coffee with a teaspoon of hot cocoa mix and hit the jackpot.  Not the whole pouch, just a teaspoon will do.  It ends up with this mocha like taste much like a rocky road coffee from Dunkin, and you know how I feel about those!  If I'm feeling adventurous I'll throw in a flavored creamer like hazelnut or vanilla caramel.  Pour it into your favorite coffee mug and voila!  Perfect pick me up to get the day started right!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!  After all, the cravings must be satisfied!  But before you do, don't forget to enter our $125 Paypal cash giveaway!  Everyone needs a little extra $$ right??
