The hot days of summer are here, and it’s perfect weather for those nice cold drinks. Sitting on the couch on a hot afternoon sipping an iced coffee is just amazing! I could easily spend a lot of money on Starbucks or McDonald’s, but I make my own quite often, for less money AND fewer ingredients! Get this, you really only need TWO ingredients. Yes, two.
Almond milk and frozen coffee cubes.
Why coffee cubes? Because I HATE it when I get an iced coffee that’s full of ice and it melts so quickly in the summer heat, making my once wonderful coffee all watery and gross. When the coffee cubes melt, they gently mix with the almond milk and create a great flavor! I used about a cup of almond milk and one full cup of coffee to make the cubes.
Now, you can add whatever you want to flavor your coffee. I used honey and vanilla extract, but you could easily add chocolate syrup to make it an iced mocha, or even pumpkin spice when it gets closer to Fall! The possibilities are endless, but that simple combination of almond milk and frozen coffee cubes gives you the base of a delicious iced coffee! Keep a few cups worth of coffee in the freezer at all times so you never have to go without.
