Eats // A short-cut recipe for iced coffee.

a simple iced coffee recipe in less than 5 minutes

Can I confide in you a little secret? I actually go to sleep excited for breakfast the next morning, particularly coffee. My beloved morning coffee is hands down my addiction of choice, but sometimes I get tired of hot coffee (especially living in Houston). On the flip-side, I’m not a exactly a morning person either, sooo to make a long story short(er) I’ve fallen in love with this simple iced-coffee recipe… fair warning, though, this post may not be for the coffee-snobs out there.

a simple iced coffee recipe in less than 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 tsp. instant coffee
  • 1 cup of milk (or use cream, your choice)
  • 2 tsp. flavored syrup (I used sugar-free vanilla)
  • 3 tsbp. warm water
  • Ice

Combine the warm water and instant coffee in your cup, and stir really well. I like my coffee strong so I use 3 teaspoons of the coffee grounds, but two will work. Add in your flavored syrup, milk, and ice and stir once more, than you’re good to go!

    Totally feel ya on the excitement for breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day and I can never understand when people say they skip it. I would be so grumpy.

    I’ve done this – it’s fantastic! (only I’m bad and don’t use the sugar-free syrup – hazelnut for me)

    • Ashley said:

      Kari, you don’t need sugar-free anything ;)

      Also, are you coming to the Ikea event Saturday? If not, I’m doing a Valentine’s event at Langford again the first week of Feb, so maybe you, Avni, and I can grab something to eat before or after :)
