There are two kinds of coffee drinkers -- those who love nothing more than black coffee and those who prefer to add a little something to their brews. If you belong to the latter camp and have grown tired of plain old sugar, we've got a few sweet alternatives for you. Honey Though it usually accompanies tea, honey can be just as good in coffee. Try adding a teaspoon or two of this sweet stuff into your morning cup of Joe. Not only can honey soothe a scratchy throat, it has also been known to boost the immune system. Maple Syrup We've tried it in the office. A little splash of pure maple syrup can add a nice touch to "breakfast" coffee. It will round out the notes of a coffee and add a slight aroma, not a bad thing on a cold morning. Agave Nectar Often available in organic varieties, agave nectar offers a natural alternative to sugar. Since it's already in liquid form, agave nectar can easily be used to sweeten iced coffee. Flavored Syrup Not only will they add a hint of flavor and aroma to a drink, syrups, such as Monin Syrups, can also be used to sweeten your beverage. Best of all, Monin Syrups are available in organic and sugar-free options. Condensed Milk An essential ingredient in Vietnamese coffee, condensed milk acts as sweetener and creamer in one. Try it in an Americano or drip coffee but remember, a little bit goes a long way. We're curious to know, what do you take in your coffee? And, are you willing to give unconventional sweeteners a try?

If you remember back to when I posted a recipe for the Salted Caramel Espresso milkshake that used Monin’s new syrup, or if you watched the video, you probably noticed that there was another syrup that didn’t get quite as much attention, the all new French Vanilla. Well, we’re remedying that right now! This weekend, prepare yourself for the French Vanilla Iced Latte! Here’s what you’ll need: 2 Shots of Espresso Cold Milk Ice Cubes 1 1/4oz of Monin French Vanilla Syrup A 16oz Glass This recipe might go down as one of the easiest I’ve ever blogged about. Begin by filling your glass with ice, when that’s done, add your espresso and your syrup. Top off the rest of the glass with your milk and stir (or shake if you dig that sort of thing) to mix everything thoroughly. Garnish that bad boy with whipped cream and enjoy! Watch the recipe video.
