Flavia / Alterra Indulgence Beverages - Sooo Tasty & Versatile!

One can make so many tasty & awesome drinks with the single cup Flavia / Alterra "Indulgence" flavors! You'll find yourself coming up with new recipes on the fly.

What are the "Indulgence" beverages? There are only 3, but once you know how to use them, they are sure to become a fave. These drinks are: Dove hot chocolate; Milky Way Swirl; Cappuccino Swirl. They are to be used with the 2 step setting on your Flavia coffee machine. After setting your machine correctly, put the Indulgence packet in, let it finish, and then put your other packet in. If you have an electronic Flavia machine, it will prompt you to change packets.

        On example of a simple indulgence recipe is your basic choco-coffee drink. That's a Dove packet plus any coffee flavor you like- but the Hazelnut & Vanilla are the most popular coffees to use with the Dove. You might also combine the Dove with Peppermint Herbal Bright Tea to make a Peppermint Patty type drink that can be served over ice. (Let it cool off a bit before icing.)

With your Cappuccino Latte Swirl packet, you can make many frothy drinks, cheaper and more tasty than a certain coffee chain that charges way too much. For instance, combine your Cappuccino Latte Swirl with Espresso or Barista's Blend for a simple classic. You can use *any* kind of coffee with this packet, but another interesting combo is the Chai Latte- use the Chai Spice tea with the Cappuccino and you'll have yourself a smooth yet spicy treat.

Milky Way Swirl- it's a delicious topper-offer for any coffee, but Vanilla in particular. It makes a smooth, velvety drink that will totally remind you of the Milky Way candy bars you know and love. Milky Way Swirl can also be combined with Dove chocolate. If you're feeling really crazy you can get a large mug and combine Dove, Milky Way, and Cappuccino.
