The best iced coffee, in the comfort of your own home.
♥ Stir, freeze, pour, and enjoy
This iced coffee trick is so simple, there’s no excuse not to try it!
Simply stir the ingredients right in the glass, and the result is a chilled coffee beverage that could very well be the best iced coffee you’ve ever had – no trip to Starbucks required. It allows you to sip your iced coffee leisurely, without worrying about the ice melting and diluting the rich coffee flavor.
I was standing in the kitchen of my apartment on Saturday morning, cleaning the breakfast dishes and trying to pawn the last cup of coffee off on a friend because I hate wasting food, when my friend looked at me and said ten simple-yet-brilliant words that forever changed the way I look at coffee:
Why don’t you freeze it in an ice cube tray?
So, having nothing to lose, I tried it…
So simple, and yet so brilliant.
The Best Iced Coffee – How To:
- Step One: Brew coffee as you normally would.
- Sep Two: Mix in sugar/sweetener of choice – Use the type and amount you’d normally stir into iced coffee.
- Step Three: Pour coffee into an ice cube tray, and freeze.
- Step Four: Place 5-8 coffee ice cubes into a glass (more = stronger), then pour a glass of milk (I like Silk cashewmilk) over the top. Watch as the two magically mix together for a delicious and non-watery homemade iced coffee!
*For a frozen twist, try blending the frozen coffee ice cubes with your milk of choice instead of simply stirring together. Hello instant Frappuccino!
