Iced coffee is one of my favorite things. Coffee on the rocks, I like to call it. I drink it year-round because (in my one year experience), there is apparently no such thing as winter in Houston. Plus, it’s one of the cheapest, least terrible-for-you drinks you can order at Starbucks. However, I have a rule that I only go to Starbucks on Friday mornings as a special treat. It keeps me from spending all of my money there. Maybe I should implement this policy in other areas of my life. But sometimes, I want iced coffee in the middle of the week! I’ve seen quite a few recipes on Pinterest, but they just seem really involved, and I am not here for that. So I made my own.
Remember my coffee smoothie I shared a few weeks back? Well, I had coffee ice cubes in my freezer just waiting to become a coffee smoothie, when one morning last week I had an epiphany. Coffee ice cubes plus milk equals ice coffee. It was even better than the time that I discovered that if you just light a candle people are more likely to think your house is clean. Just kidding, that was one of the best things I’ve ever taught myself.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-5-7 coffee ice cubes (I used vanilla coffee to make these and it was extra delicious! Just make an extra large pot of coffee one morning and pour the leftover into an ice tray and pop it in the freezer!)
-coffee creamer of your choice
Here’s what you do:
1.Put the ice cubes into your cup. Pour a little creamer in, then fill up the glass with soymilk (you could use regular milk if you wanted!) and voila! I also pour a little hot coffee over the top so the coffee cubes will melt quicker, and because it’s pretty!
This is a great option for days when you want something different from hot coffee, or you’re trying to cut back on how much you’re spending on coffee. Also it’s so easy that part of me can’t even believe I wrote a whole blog post about it.
If you try it, let me know what you think!
That’s all for meow!
