DIY Iced Coffee

sometimes the best things in life are a nice refreshing ice coffee–without getting in the car to pick it up! 😉 Here is a nice Iced Coffee Recipe that you can enjoy in the comfort of your home!

 

Iced Coffee Recipe 

6 c. brewed coffee
2 c. whole milk
½ c granulated sugar
¼ c packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Combine sugars to brewed coffee while it is still hot, stir to dissolve. Mix in milk and vanilla. Coffee mixture will keep for up to one week refrigerated in an airtight container.

For best results use a strong coffee like Bustelo, or another bold blend. You can substitute whole milk with; skim, almond, or soy. If you want a different flavor profile switch vanilla extract out for almond, mint, raspberry, or hazelnut extracts.

    You are my hero Josie! It’s like you read my mind! I LOVE the ID Iced coffee, however I will not spend over $4 at Ralphs to buy it when I use to get it for $1 & under when Albertsons had doublers. Last night when I was shopping I thought- I need to find an iced coffee recipe to try at home! Yea! TY!!!

    I love cold coffee!! I also do – 8oz or so brewed coffee (My fave is starbucks via blends) with 1 or 2 tablespoons of Coffeemate Italian sweet cream creamer. Yum!

    You can also try cold brewing, that’s what coffeehouses do! Just get coffee beans from vons or trader joe’s (they have coffee grinders in house so you can freshly grind up the beans). It is important that the coffee be freshly ground. Then put the freshly ground coffee in a cheese cloth and put in a pitcher of ice cold filtered water. Let the grounds seep into the water for about 22-25 hours. (great to make the day ahead especially if you have company coming over). Then life the cheesecloth out of the coffee and allow the remaining liquid to drip out, about another 30 min to an hour. Once the coffee is made it will give you that true coffee color and not taste watered down when you add the ice!!
