No need to go to your local coffee shop for a good Iced Coffee. Now you can make Iced Coffee Four Ways at home with a few minutes and some simple ingredients – Traditional Iced Coffee, Dirty Chai Iced Coffee, Salted Caramel Iced Coffee, and Mocha Iced Coffee.
A few weeks ago I was grocery shopping at our local health foods store. I was craving an iced coffee like mad and headed straight for the cold drinks section.
I found about six different brands of iced coffee. Most of them were loaded with sugar and unhealthy ingredients, with a select few that were actually made with clean ingredients.
You’d think that an iced coffee would be coffee and a milk or dairy-free milk. I was surprised to learn that some brands add a bunch of extra stuff. Also, only two brands had a dairy-free version of iced coffee.
I opted for one of the dairy-free versions and ended up paying $3 a bottle (and that was on sale). It was quite the treat, but paying that much for a iced coffee stung.
I decided to make my own iced coffees four ways at home.
I like a variety of flavors. I start with brewed coffee and add in my “flavors” while the coffee is hot.
That way the ingredients will dissolve and distribute throughout my coffee evenly.
You could start with a cold brew if you wanted, just note that the coconut sugar (and other ingredients) may not dissolve all the way.
After I brewed my coffee, I added it to jars and stirred in the ingredients that gave each iced coffee it’s unique but tasty flavor.
I put a lid on the jar and set it in the refrigerator until it was cold (that way the ice didn’t melt when I poured the coffee over ice).
I’ve left the coffee in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Making iced coffee four ways has saved me time from going to the coffee shop, money, and I can make it exactly the way I like it.
I hope one of these iced coffee recipes works for you.
If you can have dairy, feel free to use your dairy of choice.
