Easy peasy iced coffee recipe is here! I’ve always been a coffee lover, and always spent too much money on buying coffee at starbucks and other coffee shops. I decided to try some of my own, and maybe save money at least somewhere. It’s been tough trying to figure out which creamer is best, how much coffee I needed, and all of those little things.
I started out with a Dunkin Donuts creamer, it was the Extra Extra one. It seemed to work its wonders. I kept trying different ones, Irish Cream, Vanilla, all sorts of brands and then I hit the jackpot. Have you ever tried the Cold Stone Creamery one? Well I have, the Sweet Cream one is the one I fell in love with. I promise, it might seem like “how will a creamer brand change the taste of your coffee?” Well it REALLY does change the way your iced coffee will taste like. I started making iced coffee three times a day that;s how much I loved it. It wasn’t the best idea ever. My mom started scolding me that I was having too much of it, I started getting bad acne and she kept telling me that it’s from my iced coffee’s that I’m so addicted to. It was a phase, almost like falling in love. But then I started backing out of it because I noticed it wasn’t the greatest for my health. But on 85 degrees weather, trust me it’s tempting 🙂
I’m not using the Cold Stone one in this recipe, the store was all out and I bought this one instead. It’s actually not that bad either 😉 But I do recommend you try the Cold Stone one first.
Ingredients for iced coffee:
- 4 tbsp Favorite brand of coffee (I use Utica Coffee)
- 16 oz cold water
- Cold Stone Creamery, Sweet Cream Flavored (or whichever preferred)
- Take 4 tbsp of ground coffee and place into a small sauce pan with 16 oz of fresh cold water. (Or if you have a coffee maker, then life is easy for you) Put it on the stove on medium heat, and let it come almost to a boil, don’t let it boil, or if it does turn off right away.
- Let it cool. While coffee is cooling, take two glasses or wherever you want to have your coffee, and place ice cubes to almost full glass. I like to have a lot of ice, it makes it so much easier to make your coffee. Add caramel inside the glass, that’s if you prefer it.
- When your coffee is cooled off, pour about 3/4 of coffee into the glass. Leave room for the creamer. (In the picture I added creamer first, it’s all up to you)
- After adding the coffee, add in the creamer. I don’t have exact measurements for it, everyone is different with their coffee taste. So see for yourself how sweet you’d like it to be. Stir and enjoy!
– Also if you’d like to purchase these same exact dairy bottles you can buy them here . These are great for entertainment events and perfect for a hot summer day!
