As a coffee lover, I always got a little sad when summer rolled around, because hot coffee on a hot morning just doesn't mix. I could go to a coffee place and buy something, but I've always found it to be a waste of money when I have great coffee at home. Putting ice cubes in my coffee was about as creative as I had gotten at that point, which is gross, but now I have evolved and found some fun ways to make great iced coffee at home!
Why didn't I think of this before? If I want my coffee cold, I should add ice, right?
Take fresh coffee and pour into an ice cube tray.
Pour over milk and voila! Perfect iced coffee that is NOT watery!
So What if I Don't Have Time to Freeze it?
Freezing coffee has to be something pre-meditated, but often I am so incredibly busy that I just don't remember to make it, and then in the morning I'm back at square one....UNTIL the other day when I bought one of those water bottles that comes with its own chill stick.
Keep the stick chilled in the freezer. (I bought several)
And in the morning, pour your coffee and let the chilling commence!
For When I Have Too Much Time
This last chilly beverage is simple. All you need is a blender, some ice, your favorite coffee and creamer/sugar how you like it.
Can you say frappaccino?
I love this! It's just as good as starbucks, and so very simple!
