♫ ▬▬►Boadicea's Coffee Flavoring / Creamer ◄▬▬ ♫

My favorite flavoring for coffee is "Strudel", a type of sweet layered pastry with a fruit filling inside (appel, peach, pear, etc) and often served with cream. It became popular in the 18th century through the Habsburg Empire and is most often associated with Austrian cuisine, but it's the flavor and the aroma of the strudel that go really well with coffee.

I mix 1 tbsp of vanilla extract with 1 tbsp of almond extract, 1 tsp of lemon extract and 1 tbsp of orange peel, 1 tbsp of allspice and 1 fl oz of water. This is my base mix (about 3 fl oz).
I store it in a little glass 4 fl oz canning jar (actually a salt jar) that screws shut and put it in my fridge and let it marinate for a couple of days.

To make the creamer, I get a can of fat-free evaporated milk (12 fl oz) and mix with 8 fl oz of 2% milk for some cream coloring. The fat-free milk, even evaporated, is so watery you can't tell you add it to your coffee. This yields a total of 20 fl oz / 40 tbsp. Fill it in glass canning jars. Add about 1 fl oz / 2 tbsp of the flavoring to 8 fl oz of milk, or if you drink your coffee black add it to 8 fl oz of filtered water.

This is A LOT cheaper than the coffee flavorings you buy in the store, and it brings the full flavor and aroma experience to your coffee.

    Boy, it's hard to find any specific info on the diet. I googled and all I got was general info and then an ad directing me to the book. There is a Digest Diet group on FaceBook. Bet you could get info from one of them.
    Good luck!
