If you love Baileys Irish Cream but are looking to save a little money (or even carbs), you might want to try making your own at home. It’s not as difficult as you might think, and it’s definitely worth it. Baileys Irish Cream is such a versatile drink, whether you enjoy it straight on the rocks, mixed into your coffee, as a decadent fudge or even as part of a grownup milkshake. So why wouldn’t you want the lowdown on how to whip up your own whenever you have a craving?
Easy As Apple Pie lives up to its name with this quick and easy recipe for Baileys. If you have a blender and a few simple ingredients, including heavy cream, instant coffee and Irish Whiskey, you’ll be enjoying a drink before you know it!
Are you doing a low-carb diet such as Keto? Well, Low Carb Yum also developed a copycat Baileys Irish Cream recipe that tastes amazing but keeps the carb count down.
The secret to this recipe is allowing the mixture — made with ingredients such as instant espresso powder, heavy cream, almond and vanilla extracts, cocoa powder and Irish Whisky — to simmer and reduce down into a rich, creamy concoction. It may take a little extra time to make this version, but you’ll get a full flavor and not miss any of the carbs from the sugar you usually find in this drink.
The Brown Eyed Baker also has a recipe you can make and store in your refrigerator for up to two months, so you can continue to make those Irish drinks long after St. Patrick’s Day is over! This recipe uses chocolate syrup, sweetened condensed milk, instant coffee, vanilla extract, half and half and Irish Whiskey.
Any of these recipes will help you celebrate the Irish in you no matter what the calendar says!
