Make the Best Iced Coffee in 4 Easy Steps

I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but I seem to alternate between cold and hot. I’ll make a pot and drink it hot, then the next day will drink it cold. But regular ice waters it down and regular sugar clumps at the bottom.

Here are 4 easy steps to make your iced coffee better than what you’d get at the coffee shop.

Best Iced Coffee in 4 Easy Steps:

  1. add coffee cubes to your cup
  2. add your coffee
  3. add half & half, milk, or almond milk (skip this step if you like yours black)
  4. add grade b maple syrup. (skip this step if you don’t like it sweet).

Stir and drink – yes, that’s it!

 

Notes:

  • Coffee ice cubes can be made with a leftover pot of coffee. Just pour the coffee into the ice cube tray the night before and you’re ready to go by morning! Sure regular ice works, but why not use coffee?

  • I use natural maple syrup because unlike other sugars, it dissolves easily even when cold. Use Grade B Maple Syrup (I get mine at Trader Joe’s) and you’ll also score some great health benefits including fewer calories than other sweeteners and added minerals.
  • Cold brewing the coffee adds a mellow but delicious flavor to the iced coffee. Here’s a simple post on cold brewing coffee. I usually make a batch of this when the weather is warmer.

    Great to meet you guys, I am somewhat of a zombie enthusiast.
    So I ended up discovering this information and so I honestly liked
    it. It includes a number of significantly good ideas that I can absorb.
    I have got to express, I’ve ended up depressed in recent months as my bro is no longer with me. Browsing the on-line world gives me a little bit of piece of mind . I would personally choose to say thank you to you due to this notable web-based document which probably can help extend the word involving zombies even more! I personally was curious about if you have got rss listing so I can remember to keep up-to-date on this page.
