 Coffee Sugar Scrub with Don Tomas Coffee

Our sponsor this week for Foodie Friends Friday is Don Tomas Coffee. They sent each of us a package of their coffee to review. Ryo loved the coffee! He was really impressed with the robust flavor and wonderful smell. 

I don’t drink coffee. {Gasp!} I just never developed a taste for it. I do love the way it smells! So, I decided to do something a little different with some of the coffee, compared to the other host of FFF. Let me tell you, I had to make this when Ryo was at work, so I wouldn’t get in trouble for using the Don Tomas coffee! Seriously, that is how much he liked it!

If you have a coffee lover on your Christmas list this would make a great gift for them! Of course, you should make it for yourself first, you know, to try it out and make sure you like it. 

I played around with this recipe until I came up with the perfect blend for me. If it is too strong of a coffee scent for you, just use less coffee grounds, or add more sugar to the final product to thin the coffee scent. Hopefully you won’t need to do that, but our noses are all different, so wanted you to know what to do just in case!

I normally don’t keep my sugar scrubs in the refrigerator between uses. Since this one uses coffee grounds, I am planning on keeping it in there, just to be safe.

Coffee Sugar Scrub

Coffee Sugar Scrub

Here is what you will need:
1 cup White Sugar
1/8 cup Coffee Grounds
1/4 cup Almond Oil
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Mix all of the ingredients together and place in a clean, dry jar. 
Keep in refrigerator between uses. 

To use scrub: Place a small amount in your wet hand, and rub into skin. Rinse, and pat dry. 

The coffee grounds and sugar make for a great exfoliant, and the almond oil helps your skin to feel nice and soft. The vanilla is optional, it just gives the scrub a little something extra.

Do you have a favorite sugar scrub that you make? Leave me a comment and tell me about it! I may give it a try!


Look here to see where I am partying at!

      I have pretty pale skin and I haven’t noticed it staining my skin. I plan on taking a jar of the scrub to work, so I will ask around and see if anyone else feels like it colors their skin or not. You could lower the amount of coffee grounds in the scrub. It would still have a great coffee scent. The next time I make a batch up I want to try using a flavored coffee. :o)

    if you add some vitamin e — or use a little coconut oil, which has vitamin e in it — it will act as a preservative and should allow it to be stable outside the fridge
