Today’s post is one that is near & dear to my heart because it’s a topic near & dear to my heart… coffee.
I love coffee. I have 2-3 cups a day. It’s just a whole vibe & truly has the ability to make me happy when nothing else will. I wanted to share my homemade iced coffee recipe with you guys because now that it’s summertime, that’s all I’m drinking! It’s so expensive to buy an iced coffee everyday & making it at home also saves time! I am definitely that person that walks in late with a coffee in hand… ooopss.
Ingredients: coffee (duh)
dairy free creamer or flavored syrup
Prep time: 2 minutes
So for this recipe to work best, make coffee the night before & put it in the fridge overnight. Sometimes if I forget at night, I’ll wake up & make a quick cup & put it in the freezer for a couple of hours while I get ready & that works too. But having cold coffee is really the only way you’re going to get the true iced experience.
I add a few ice cubes to a reusable cup, pour in my cold coffee, add about 2 tablespoons of almond milk, & 2 tablespoons of dairy-free vanilla creamer (I like Califia Farms) or 2 tablespoons of vanilla syrup (Torani is good for this). You will get a thicker, sweeter flavor with the creamer, but a stronger coffee taste with syrup. The best way to describe it is Starbucks vs Dunkin’ iced coffee. One is sweet, one is more bitter, but both get the job done & make me feel like a new woman.
