CHEF'S TIP

Chef’s Tips:

*If you have any leftover coffee, fill an ice cube tray with the coffee and freeze. Use the coffee ice cubes in place of regular ice cubes.

*The coffee and maple sugar mixture can be made a few days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to mix.

*Milk substitutes can be used in place of the milk (for example: almond, coconut, soy, cashew). Milk may also be replaced with half and half or cream for a richer version.
