Do you love Iced Coffee? I am a HUGE fan of Iced, Hot, and Frozen coffee! Give me anything coffee related and I’m one happy girl! Every once in a while I will buy iced coffee – but it’s definitely not frugal so I have learned to make my own. Below is the recipe I use:Ingredients Needed:
Strong Ground Coffee
Creamer – Flavored, Half & Half, or Milk
Sweetener- Carmel, Butterscotch, Chocolate Syrup, Sugar
To get started, brew a strong pot of coffee. I usually let the coffee cool a while and then poor it into a pitcher which I keep in our refrigerator to have on hand. However if you are planning to drink it right away, you will want to add in about 1/2 – 3/4 more coffee grounds to your brew, as you will need a lot of ice to cool it down which will dilute the coffee. On the off chance you make your coffee too strong, just add in some cold water a little at a time. I have also found that crushed ice is very appealing in Iced Coffee!
I absolutely love Smucker’s Sundae Syrup! If you are looking for an Iced Latte taste, this is the way to go! Add in a few table spoons of Carmel Smuckers Sundae Syrup and some Half & Half and you have yourself the tastyiest Iced Coffee ever! To change it up a bit, Ill use The Smuckers Butterscotch syrup and if you like Moca Latte’s, give the Chocolate syrup a try.
Since there are so many great deals on coffee creamer, Ill add one of the flavored kinds to the Iced Coffee and its great too! I personally don’t think it needs any extra sugar but a little syrup or sugar can be added.
You can also follow all the steps above with some extra ice and add it to a blender for a Frozen Coffee. It always tastes better with a little whipped cream! ;o)
