More Than Just Coffee: 5 Delicious Non-Coffee Options for Your Single Serve Brewer

The single serve brewer
is a marvel of modern science. Ok… so
maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it certainly simplifies the
coffee-making process. Using a single
serve brewer is more convenient and easier to clean and you can experiment to
create new drinks anytime you want.
Single serve brewers are versatile, too. In fact, you can make drinks that aren’t even coffee-based for a change of pace or to satisfy any non-coffee drinkers in the house or at the office. Here are five options for you to try:
It seems like the selection and variety of hot teas is always growing, which is great news for people who love to drink tea. This is great news for those that like to focus their attention on mastering one cup at a time, too.
1) Hot Teas
Some of the different teas that work wonderfully with a single cup brewer include:
- Black tea
- Green tea
- Early Grey
- Chai tea
- Peppermint tea
- African Rooibos
- White tea
- Lemon tea
- Blueberry tea
Whether your thing is herbal, spiced or more traditional, single serve brewers have you covered.
2) Iced Teas
And there’s no reason that your tea must be hot, either. Iced tea is about as refreshing a drink as you’ll find, and it’s definitely more than just some basic tea with a bunch of sugar dumped into it. You can certainly do it that way, but you can also make iced tea with a green tea base or that’s flavoured with lemon, peach, acai berry or other fruits.
3) Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate is a drink that you can make in a single cup brewer that takes the comfort factor to a whole new level. Not only is it hot and soothing, but it is also rich and chocolaty, giving it a double dose of what you need on a cold day.
Standard hot cocoa is a great drink on its own, but you can also try milk hot chocolate, dark hot chocolate, white hot chocolate or some combination of the three. White hot chocolate is an interesting choice, and you can always throw in some cinnamon or put a dollop of whipped cream on top to up the ante just a bit.
4) Healthy Fruit Drinks
The K-cup phenomenon has produced quite a few tasty drinks, among them are some healthy fruit drinks that are worth a try. You can choose from drinks that feature strawberries and pomegranates or blackberries and green tea or even blood oranges and star fruit. Each one also has a good dose of antioxidants and vitamins to help keep you going throughout the day.
5) Hot Apple Cider
Another hot fruit drink that you can create with a single cup brewer is hot apple cider. Apple cider is a traditional holiday drink, but it tastes great and makes for a comforting drink all year around. Add a cinnamon stick to your mug to enhance the flavor!
