Carolyn has been a fan of iced coffee for as long as I can remember and she has raved about it to me for years. Only in the last year or two did I really start to appreciate the wonder that is iced coffee! A couple weeks ago she wrote me and said she had tried a recipe she found online. She made a base pitcher of iced coffee and keeps it in the fridge. She thinks it’s just as good as Starbucks and cheaper! I made some this morning and I have to agree it’s mighty tasty. I thought I’d share with you guys!
Just-As-Good-As-Starbucks Iced Coffee
12 cups water
8 heaping tablespoons coffee
*Desired sweeteners and flavorings
Brew coffee with the amounts of coffee and water listed above. Fill a glass with ice and pour the hot coffee over it. Add any sweeteners and/or flavorings you’d like.
Carolyn’s Favorite: 1/2 cup skim or almond milk with either sugar free vanilla syrup or skinny caramel macchiato creamer
My Favorite: 1 tablespoon Fat Free Hazelnut Coffeemate, 1 packet Sweet N Low, drizzle of caramel syrup (available at Starbucks) *the best part about the caramel syrup is when it hardens in the icy liquid and you suck up bits of caramel through your straw!
I can already tell this is going to be a staple in my fridge!
