Iced coffee is the perfect refresher on a hot afternoon. Make your coffee break into a little oasis of icy, creamy sweetness combined with spicy toasty goodness. Be your own barista as you try out these iced coffee recipes. You can keep it healthy with traditional vanilla and caramel flavors or go all out and keep it just this side of a coffee dessert.
Do you start every morning with coffee? How about lunch, afternoon break, dinner, after dinner… how many coffees do you like to drink in a day.
I usually have a coffee with my breakfast and my lunch. And I confess to sometimes even indulging in a few chocolate covered coffee beans if I need an extra boost of caffeine in the afternoon.
Since I work at home, I make most of my coffee myself… which definitely saves money.
But sometimes it can be nice to have an extra fancy coffee instead of my usual brew.
In the hot summer, I especially love having iced coffee. It’s amazing how refreshing a cold coffee can be when it’s hot outside. But I do make iced coffee recipes all year round.
