Cheese Coffee

Yes, you read that title correctly. It seems that cheese coffee is a thing. In Finland, it is called kaffeost. They add cheese to their coffee made from reindeer milk. It’s also known as Finnish Squeaky Cheese or bread cheese. Now we have been putting dairy in our coffee for years, whether it be milk, half & half, or more recently butter.

The cheese is chopped into cubes and melts in the coffee becoming kind of like marshmallows in hot cocoa. The cheese can be made from goat or cow milk too. To get the right texture, the cheese will be curdled, baked, and dried.

This video shows the person cutting the cheese into cubes and making the coffee. You most likely won’t understand what she is saying.

Another Way to Have Green Tea

We LOVE green tea. An even more yummy and fun way to have it is to eat it. Now I’m sure there are a lot of recipes out there using green tea but we’ve discovered a really good Green Tea Ice Cream from Häagen-Dazs

Now we are very careful of what ice creams we eat because a lot of ice cream has unnecessary junk in it. The ingredients of this ice cream are cream, skim milk, sugar, egg yolks, and green tea. That’s it. The flavor isn’t overpowering. We like it with a little whipped cream on top.

Want to try to make your own? Here is an authentic green tea ice cream recipe. You will need an ice cream churn for this. This recipe does not contain eggs. It uses matcha green tea powder and not the kind of green tea you buy for making your green tea.
