This was supposed to go out tomorrow. OOPS! Ever hit publish instead of schedule? Le sigh, oh well 😉
Any time I make a pot of coffee, I usually only drink one cup hot. I save the rest of the pot and use it the next two to three days to make iced coffee!
Fill a large cup about 8 oz (1 cup of coffee) full, then add milk. I like using Almond Milk, it goes well with the coffee.
Add a bit of organic maple syrup, honey, or simple syrup.
Stir well until mixed, add ice and a straw!
Unlike sugar, the sweeteners I listed will dissolve better in the cold liquid, so you don’t get the sugar chunks on the bottom.
For an even more natural alternative, I highly recommend using Stevia, but I have yet to teach myself to become a fan of the taste.
Looking for a healthy protein kick? Skip the sweet stuff and add a scoop or two of Cinch! You can see how I used the Cinch to loose my baby weight here. 🙂
Sip and enjoy your tasty drink that you made at home!
And it didn’t involve packing the kids in the car, and going through the guilt trip that is spending $3 for coffee with ice in it… I know I’ve been there. 😉
After going over a few of the blog posts on your blog,
I truly like your way of writing a blog.
I saved as a favorite it to my bookmark website
list and will be checking back in the near future. Take a look
at my website too and tell me how you feel.
Wow, fantastic blog structure! How long have you ever been blogging for?
you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is great,
let alone the content!

Elizabeth - I just started seeing commercials for the .99 promotion! Woohoo! Usually our DD and Starbucks sell them for 2 and some change, I make mine big at home, so I'd be spending closer to 3 for that size there. :)Glad you guys enjoyed the post!
Yes I have hit publish on accident! I screamed. That looks soo good. I don't drink coffee, but wow. It looks great. 😉
Great reminder that the good stuff can be made at home for cheap-cheap. Never thought of using my vanilla flavored stevia. Thank you.
http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=17576976I bought two of the above cups at bed bath and beyond. I LOVE homemade iced coffee. I used coupons for the cups. I just brew pots and stick them right in the fridge. Then I add ice and sugar free vanilla liquid creamer! 🙂 I am going to totally try the Cinch in my coffee! I am all for some protein shake for more Mommy energy!! 🙂
I love making my own iced coffee! I call it 'homemade frappuccino', because I add vanilla or chocolate syrup along with the milk, or sometimes a flavored creamer. I haven't bought coffee to make at home in a while, this makes me want to...But where do you get a $3 iced coffee? The most I've paid is maybe $1.50, they're all .99 at Dunkin right now! A blended ice drink like frappuccino, that can be $3, and worth it to my mind =)
