Tassimo Home Brewing System Review and Giveaway

I love going out for coffee but it gets to be expensive so I was excited when Tassimo asked me to review their T20 Home Brewing System.

I love that the Tassimo has accessory kits to personalize the brewer. The company sent me red but they have other color options as well.

Isn’t that fun? Adds a shot of color to my otherwise neutral colored kitchen. The Tassimo T20 brews over 40 varities of hot and cold beverages including coffee, chai latte, cappucino, tea and more. It’s compact in size and there is zero cleanup after making something to drink.

I tried the Starbucks® Cappuccino Primo and added some chocolate syrup and Truvia sweetener and it was a yummy afternoon treat. Searching their site I found some other drinks I’d like to try including the Gevalia Caramel Latte Macchiato and the Gevalia Sweet & Creamy Iced Coffee. They also have a recipe page on the website.

Making Mornings Better With Truvia #maptruvia

You all probably know that I love going out to get Iced Mochas (I even made them one of my top favorites of summer) so I’m sure it’s  no surprise that I jumped on the chance to make some coffeehouse-inspired drinks at home. I wanted to stick with something easy because as a mom if something is complicated I will not take the time to make it for myself. I chose two delicious mixes, one tea and one coffee, and show how in only a couple of minutes you can make something special for yourself. Check out the whrrl story below to find out how to make your mornings better with Truvia:

In addition to these two drinks I also created an Iced Vanilla Coffee using Truvia a few months ago and that recipe can be found here.

Iced Coffee At Home (Keurig/Truvia Giveaways)

I reviewed the Keurig last month and shared that, while I loved it, I wished it made cold drinks. Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Keurig about reviewing their “brew over ice” k-cups. Yes, brew over ice which means that I can use my Keurig to make iced drinks! I made one the other day and wanted to share with you all about the yummy iced coffee drink I made.

How to make an iced vanilla coffee drink at home:

Ingredients needed: ice, water, Keurig “brew over ice” k-cup (French Vanilla flavored), Truvia sweetener, and milk

Directions:

1) Use your Keurig machine to brew coffee like normal (use the manual for step-by-step directions). Make sure to choose the 6 or 8 oz. cup choice on your brewer.

2) Put ice in a travel coffee mug (it can be in any cup but I used a travel mug because it has a lid)

3) Pour milk over ice (fill 1/4 of the way up the cup)

4) Add hot coffee

5) Add 2 packets of Truvia sweetner (I love this because it is natural and calorie free. It’s also not gritty like plain sugar.)

6) Put lid on the mug and shake. Pour into a cup of your choice and enjoy! :)
