Monthly Mingle Coffee and Tea Roundup

 MM TeaCoffee10-2008-550px roundup

No liquids! I had asked you to come up with innovative and unique ideas using coffee or tea. Send me anything using the two ingredients however, not in their liquid form. Of course you came up with a few delectable and creative ideas. I did not expect anything less!

Monthly Mingle - Low-Sugar Treats

MM low-sugar sweet treats Before we get into the roundup let me tell you a bit about our next mingle. This month I am extremely proud to announce that the Monthly Mingle will be hosted over at the Daily Tiffin. My lovely team mate Dee is going to be your gracious hostess for this session.

For those of you who know what the Daily Tiffin is about will know that we are a team of fabulous bloggers who believe in a healthy well balanced lifestyle. The next few weeks will be filled with festivities, food and sweets. Sweet treats that everyone loves to indulge in. Our theme is all about sweet treats - however, we are looking for low-sugar sweet treats. Sure we want to allow our kids to have a sweet treat extra at this time of year and we say yes to indulging. Life would be boring if we always lived by strict rules. But we want to indulge sensibly and with no guilt.

We would like you to help us this month create a plethora of sensible treats. Join us and share your low-sugar sweet treats.

For more details please join us at the Daily Tiffin for Low-Sugar Sweet Treats!

  1. Nice round up.Happy to be a part of it.Next theme is more challenging I think.

  2. As usual, food bloggers rise to your challenge and how!
    Thats a beautiful round up. I'm itching to try every single one of those recipes. The only thing better than the liquid coffee or tea would be baked good with coffee or tea in it, right?

  3. So many recipes. As usual a wonderful round up.

  4. Nice roundup.. Couldn't find matcha powder for my recipe so I couldn't participate :( But enough excuses.. Will make it for the next one :)

  5. You missed out mine! I'm definitely in for the next one as well.

  6. I have been looking forward to this roundup - coffee being a fave flavour with my son and I! And there is a lot to choose from here!

  7. lovely round up~~ also a well chosen theme for the next one!

  11. This was an unusual theme and I did want to send in something, but life keeps happening. :)

    I will try to be a part of the next one. Liked that theme very much.

  12. Wonderful Meeta and thanks for the fantastic round up.

  13. Great round up of intriguing sounding treats - I am sorry I didn't get to put in anything - I found a recipe just the other day with tea that looked great and now have forgotten it - life's a bit like that sometimes - but will have to trawl these ones - and will think about low sugar treats - sounds like a good theme!

  14. Wonderful Round-up it is! Meeta, Pls check out YAAT post at my blog!
    I have something for you...

  16. This is a great roundup. I always enjoy coffee/tea-based sweets, but for some reason, never seem to make any myself. Looks like I have a bunch of good looking reasons to work on that

  17. Hi Meeta,
