Nestlé's Coffee-Mate, the non-dairy powdered or liquid creamer, is used as a substitute for milk in hot tea, coffee and cocoa. It comes in a wide range of flavours, including hazelnut, French vanilla and gingerbread. The Coffee-Mate powder can be added simply by stirring one teaspoon of powder into your drink. As Coffee-mate powder does not dissolve well in cold beverages, here's how to make the liquefied form for iced tea and coffee.

Things you need

  • Pot
  • Water
  • Stove
  • Tablespoon or measuring cup
  • Coffee-Mate powder
  • Spoon for stirring

  1. 1

    Bring a pot of water to the boil.

  2. 2

    Fill a cup with the boiling water.

  3. 3

    Add eight tablespoons (1/2 cup) of Coffee-Mate powder. Stir thoroughly, until the powder has dissolved. To make larger quantities of liquid creamer, just use one part Coffee-Mate powder to two parts boiling water.

  4. 4

    Add the liquid creamer to iced tea or coffee as a milk or half cream substitute.
