Cinnamon Coffee Syrup

14 C (60 ml) water
½ C (125 ml) brown/caramel sugar
½ tsp (2.5 ml) cinnamon
2 Tbsp (30 ml) instant coffee granules


2 double shot espressos, completely cooled
12 C (125 ml) milk
6 generous scoops of frozen yoghurt or ice cream

ground cinnamon to garnish
cinnamon coffee syrup to drizzle

Cinnamon Coffee Syrup

Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until the sugar dissolves and the mixture bubbles. Cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes until the mixture reduces and is syrupy. Remove from the stove and allow to cool completely before storing. Tip: Store in a squeezy bottle with a nib that allows for easy drizzling.


Blitz the espresso and frozen yoghurt/ice cream together until smooth. Drizzle the serving glass with the coffee syrup, pour in the smoothie mix, top with ground cinnamon, add a drizzle of syrup and enjoy.

Variations: Add a frozen banana for extra oomph. Replace the ice cream with ice blocks and a splash of milk for a frappé style drink.
