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.
Bring a pot of water to the boil.
Fill a cup with the boiling water.
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.
Add the liquid creamer to iced tea or coffee as a milk or half cream substitute.
Typical brewing temperature for coffee is 92 to 96 degrees C (197.6 to 204.8 degrees F;) for tea it is 87.8 to 100 degrees C (190 to 212 F.)
