Are you craving an Iced Coffee but don't want the calories that come with it? Then this drink is for you!
Many iced coffees from fast food places are delicious and great for a treat once a while, but sometimes it can be addicting to the consume and can lead you to consume a surplus of the popular high in calorie, caffeinated and addicting, sugary drinks. And, not to mention, it is pricey.
If you were to buy an iced coffee for $3 a day, that would make it $21 per week and approximately $90 a month and $1080 a year alone! And that is only if you were to buy one per day.
Summer is also coming up and many of you guys will be looking to hit your coffee cravings with a nice refreshing cup of iced coffee.
