Easy Iced Coffee

Don’t you just love summertime? There is a particular day in late spring where when the trees are full of leaves, the flowers blooming, the sun warming us all that I realize it is time. Time to put away my morning mug of steaming coffee and trade it in for the cool, creamy taste of iced coffee. How to Make Iced Coffee

As you may know, I am a coffee girl. Love it. I have a French Press and grind my own beans from local roasters. Cause I’m a snob like that. And coffee tastes better that way.

Now iced coffee is a brilliant thing. When I first thought about making my own at home (because I’m too cheap for Starbucks and too lazy to drive to McDonalds) I did lots of research into all kinds of different recipes. Most were complicated and way more involved than what I had in mind.

So I came up with my own home brew. How to make iced coffee? It’s not complicated. It’s so easy it’s almost stupid. Stupid-good.

Easy Iced Coffee

Ingredients:

4 cups double strength coffee

2 cups milk of choice (I use vanilla almond milk; half and half would probably be mind-blowing)

1/4 cup liquid coffee creamer of choice

Directions:

Brew 4 cups of double-strength coffee. (So if you normally put 3 heaping teaspoons, but 6.) Refrigerate over night if possible. Combine coffee with 2 cups of milk of your choice. Add 1/4 cup of liquid coffee creamer of choice. Stir gently. Pour and enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.

    1. Yes!! I normally combine everything already chilled but there is nothing worse than watered down iced coffee.

    1. That is a looong time, girl! I didn’t drink any (except a cup of decap here and there) when I was pregnant, but it didn’t take me long to get back on the coffee train!

  1. Hi, found you at Inspire Me Mondays …pinned this! Definitely still need my coffee in the summer so I’m glad I saw this. I need to try this because it is way too hot here for a hot coffee. Following now on Instagram, have a great week!

  2. Love it! I started doing this a few months ago (I’m an iced year round kinda girl) and absolutely love my homemade iced MUCH better then the stores can do. It’s also way less sugar as well so better for me. Great post 🙂

  3. I’ve just started with cold brew coffee which is of course an excellent based for iced coffee.

  4. I have been trying different iced coffees lately. I’ll drink just about any of them, but Hubby is picky. Maybe I’ll try this one this weekend when the temps are up there.

    1. It is very customizable which is why I love it. I pretty much always have some in my fridge during the summer months. 🙂

  5. If I am using k-cup coffee how do I do the coffee part? I usually make an 8oz. Cup so I made a 4 oz. cup four different times and now I have one cup of double strength coffee. So do I add water to make 4 cups?

    1. Maxine! I am honestly not sure! I only have a drip pot and french press where you can control the strength based on the amount of coffee grounds. I would just begin mixing that extra strong cup of coffee with milk and taste and adjust from there! So maybe start with 1 cup of your coffee and add 1 cup of milk and keep mixing till you find a mixture that is pleasing to you!

  6. I haven’t had dairy products in my coffee for over 30 years, but I might try this based on the (very simple) recipes. Maybe I’ll like it in iced coffee. I’ll give it a shot, and if I hate it, I’ll go back to straight coffee.

    However, one thing I will try is something I’ve been doing with orange juice. Put the ice cubes along with the coffee into blender, and let ‘er rip. Because the cubes get broken up so much, there is a huge surface area of cold compared to the original cubes. The drink is much colder, but not so much that it hurts your mouth.
