My At Home Iced Coffee Routine

What makes iced coffee so special?

Did you know that every morning, rain or shine, sleet or snow, I drink iced coffee?! It’s my absolute favourite way to wake up. What makes iced coffee so special? there’s something so refreshing about a big tall glass of slightly sweetened iced coffee.

I have always been an iced coffee drinker, for as long as I can remember. I think the obsession started after I had my first Iced Cap from Caribou in middle east. But since then, I like to think that I’ve stepped my iced coffee game up a notch.

Another shameful confession, I spent WAY too much money at Starbucks… Pre-covid I was painfully unaware that I was spending $5+ for a black Cold Brew coffee that I could make right in my own kitchen.

Be your own barista and enjoy the best iced coffee at home (don’t forget to put out a tip jar!). We love having this iced coffee concentrate in the fridge; it’s so easy to make an amazing iced coffee on the go!

Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Coffee is so easy and refreshing. Loaded with cinnamon and hints of brown sugar, topped off with cool cinnamon and sugar coffee ice cubes, no fancy equipment needed.

Things You Will Need:

1 1/2 cup milk

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup espresso or strong brewed coffee (hot)

Start off by making coffee ice cubes in advance, I normally make them the night before so I can wake up and make this amazing coffee drink : Brew 3 cups of coffee and add 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Instructions:

Pour the milk into your coffee mug, add the sugar and cinnamon.

Heat the milk in the microwave for about 30 seconds in a coffee mug.

Pour coffee or espresso into a mug; pour the warm milk into the mug with the coffee. Spoon out any remaining foamy milk if left and set aside, let cool about 5 minutes.

Take ice cube tray out of the freezer and fill a tall glass with the coffee ice cubes you made the night before.

Pour coffee over ice cubes and add more cold milk if desired.

As an added treat you can also put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth if you prefer your ice crushed.

As an option, you can add whipped cream, chocolate syrup or chocolate shavings.

1 Tablespoon ground coffee beans (2 TBSP for a stronger coffee taste)
