Amazing No Bake Coffee Cream Pie

I’m going to be making this amazing no bake coffee and cream pie and it’s going to be featuring coffee liqueur flavored syrup and it’s going to be so delicious and so easy. I know you’re going to want to make this for your next family dinner so let’s me tell you how this all comes together.

Alright i’m going to go over the ingredients that are going to go into this coffee and cream pie. This is a refrigerator pie, no bake and super delicious. We’re going to take some help from the grocery store and we’re going to get some pre made ingredients and some instant ingredients just because this is what makes the pie so easy and delicious. If you’re cooking for your next family meal it’s always nice to have a pie like this under your hat because you really don’t have to think about it too hard and you can just throw in the fridge.

So I’m going to start off with a 9 inch chocolate cookie crumb pie crust. This is just you know your standard, this is a Keebler chocolate pie crust and then we’re going to use two four serving size boxes of instant vanilla pudding mix. two cups of heavy cream (don’t substitute the heavy cream with half and half, it won’t have the same effect, we also need one cup of strong brewed coffee and a quarter of a cup or one shot of coffee liqueur flavored syrup and then I have one little packet of instant espresso powder right here that we’re going to put across the top as a decoration.

So this really couldn’t be any easier. I grab a large bowl and grab my hand mixer and I pour in the heavy cream, the coffee, and the coffee flavored liqueur syrup. This syrup tastes similar to Kahlua or other coffee liqueur syrup of some sort. I sprinkle my instant vanilla pudding across the top and then I have my hand mixer that’s fitted with the wire whips and I’m just gonna whip this up.

What you want is you want the filling to resemble a whipped filling. You don’t want to over beat it because if you do that you might run the risk of turning this into a butter pie and we don’t want that.

Pour the filling right into that pie shell. Now you can choose to put more whipped cream on the top of this pie, but I’m not going to because I really feel like there’s a lot going on in there. You can always serve whipped cream on the side if you want. Then what I’m going to do is take this little packet of instant espresso powder and sprinkle it generously on the top to give is that really pretty look.

There you go coffee and cream pie. Also, a big tip, you know when you get those store bought pie crusts and they have those little circle shields? Hopefully you don’t throw those away because I didn’t know this until I was an adult but those shields can be used to protect your pie!

I put this pie in the fridge for a couple of hours I’ll bring it back out right when it’s time to slice. That way it can get firmed up and delicious.

There you have it, a coffee and cream refrigerator pie no bake full of coffee liqueur and full of coffee goodness. Listen, if you don’t have the coffee liqueur flavored syrup don’t worry, make this anyway, it won’t even matter. The liqueur just boosts the coffee flavor. If you want to forgo the syrup you can just add a full espresso packet and mix it up with the cream and go from there. It’s all going to be fine.

So I want to thank you so much for reading today. I hope that you try this pie and I hope that you love it. I mean how could you not unless of course you don’t like coffee, but if you do like coffee you’re going to want to try this.

Five Unique Ways to Spice Up your Morning Coffee

As many of your probably know coffee is right at the top of my food pyramid. It is an absolute essential in my life. As the summer months are approaching it’s always great to cool things down with new tasty iced coffee recipes. This year I have five new iced coffee ideas that I think you guys are going to love.

We’re going to kick things off today with a vanilla bean iced coffee. As with any great iced coffee recipe this one starts with some coffee. Now I just made my coffee in advance and chilled it in the refrigerator overnight. It’s always nice to wake up and have the coffee already chilled, am I right? To that I add some milk. I’m adding dairy milk but of course almond, coconut, or soy milk would also taste great. I also add little bit of simple syrup for sweetness. Simple syrup is really easy to make you just combine some sugar and some water in a saucepan and heat it over medium low heat until the sugar dissolves completely. What you end up with is a liquid sweetner that is great added to iced drinks. So as I said I add a splash or two of simple syrup and then it’s time to add the vanilla. You always have the option to add vanilla extract, but in this case I want to make it extra delicious so I am going to be slicing a vanilla bean in half and removing the seeds. Vanilla beans can be on the expensive side so you may want to save this iced coffee for a special occasion. Vanilla extract is a much more affordable option if you want a similar flavor on a smaller budget. You have the option to stir this but I like to put it all in a mason jar, put on the lid tightly and shake it well. What you end up with is a vanilla bean iced coffee that will just make your morning go much better.

Next up I’m going to make a salted caramel iced coffee. Now in this case I’m going to be using a store bought caramel sauce, but if you want to go ahead and make your own it’s very easy. I pour the caramel into some hot coffee and then put in a sprinkle of salt. Then again I put everything in a mason jar, tighten the cap and shake it until it’s combined. Then just add ice and it’s a salted caramel iced coffee. I didn’t add any milk to this coffee. That is an option if you want, but I like this one without milk.

Now I’m going to tell you about a wickedly good coffee Nutella smoothie for breakfast. And yes it’s just what it sounds like and it’s going to be delicious. I get a blender full of ice and add the brewed coffee I chilled overnight, I then add some milk and a banana for creaminess and a few spoonfuls of delicious Nutella. Then put on your lid and give it a blend and what you get is a breakfast with a pretty serious kick.

Next is a great way to spice up your morning, it’s a cinnamon almond iced coffee. I start off with making some simple syrup and make it more delicious with a stick of cinnamon. It is great stuff, I recommend you make a little extra. I add some more coffee that I chilled overnight, add some almond milk and a splash of almond extract. You can usually find this in the baking aisle of your supermarket. Finally add a splash of two of the cinnamon simple syrup and once again shake it up until combined.

Finally for something a lot more decadent an incredible blended smore iced coffee. Of course this is what it sounds like. All the yumminess of smores in a frosty, blended coffee drink. What is not to like about that? I start with a blender full of ice and some chilled brewed coffee with milk. Now things are going to get exciting. I add some chocolate sauce, marshmallow fluff, and some broke pieces of graham crackers. Pop on the lid and blend this baby up and pour it in a glass. Don’t forget to top it with some more marshmallow fluff. Oh you’re going to want some more when you try this.

I really hope you will give these iced coffee recipes a try. If you are an iced coffee lover like me tell me how else you like to enjoy this great drink and let me know if you enjoyed these recipes!
