Pero: The Best Coffee Substitute.
When I get up in the morning, I want two things: for nobody to talk to me and my favorite morning drink, Pero, to be in my hand. I am so not a morning person. All I need are snuggles from my kitty (and sometimes my husband) and to be left alone.
SO what is this mysterious drink I am speaking of? Let me start by saying, I know that I have a lot of coffee addicts that read my blog. And trust me…I used to be one of you. Coffee is delicious. But for those of us who don’t drink coffee, or are simply looking for another tasty & amazing drink to spice up their mornings, I have something pretty fantastic for you. Read on for my favorite recipe for Pero Frappuccinos!
Pero Frappes: My Favorite Morning (also afternoon and evening) Drink
Soooo. What even is Pero?! It is a mix of malted barley, barley, chicory and rye. That is it. It is the best coffee substitute I’ve ever found. I used to drink coffee all the time. But the last few years, I stopped drinking coffee all together so I needed something to replace it, obviously. I searched far and wide and then my best friend introduced me to this glorious drink. It looks like coffee….it tastes like coffee…by science standards, it should be coffee. But it’s not. *mind blown*
Pero Drink Mix
Pour 5 tbs heavy whipping cream into a shakeable cup or small blender.
Add 3.5 tsp Pero mix.
Add 3.5 tsp sugar.
Add 2 tsp vanilla.
Add 1/4 cup of water.
I use a little mason jar that had a sealable lid! I put all the ingredients in and then I shake until blended.
Ok. There you have it, ladies! My FAVORITE morning wake-me-up drink. I love Pero, and I love that it is a coffee substitute that doesn’t disappoint. It is easy to make and takes about two seconds. It is pretty, makes a yummy foam at the top and doesn’t have a bitter after-taste. It is also kitty-approved. Felix constantly wants to “share”.
