Iced Coffee

Hot days like we’ve had recently call for some iced drinks….

….any iced drinks would work.  Just so the ice is packed in.

When it’s this hot out I’m all for iced drinks for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

And one that works great for all three is iced coffee.

You know it’s really hot outside when you….

… outside to get the mail real quick in your bare feet and the concrete is so hot that you have to intermittently hop on to the grass.

…..get out of the shower and you’re already starting to sweat.

…..have to stick your face in front of a fan before putting on your makeup because your face is so sweaty.

…..put ice in a glass and before you even start to pour water in it the ice is already melted.

…..walk into spider webs that weren’t there an hour before.

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice (and cool) week!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Brewed and chilled coffee, almond milk (or regular milk, half and half, or cream), sugar, a dash of cinnamon, cocoa powder (optional).

Here’s how to make it.

add the coffee…


…add the almond milk,

cinnamon, (and a hint of cocoa powder – optional)…

…and sugar.

Stir together and…

…add the ice.

    In the hot Carolina Summers we like our daily coffee iced. I make coffee each morning and if it is not completely used I pour it in ice trays and freeze it. I use the frozen coffee cubes instead of plain ice, keeps the iced coffee from being diluted and I am not pouring out unused coffee. Hint: slightly overfill the cube compartment and as it freezes the coffee cube will push up higher and be easier than ever to take out.

      Hi Karen, I love that idea! What a great way to put leftover coffee to good use. And perfect to prevent the ice cubes from diluting the iced coffee. Thank you for mentioning this and the tip about overfilling the ice tray too. I’m going to try this. Thank you again and have a wonderful weekend!
