I love my morning cup of steaming, hot coffee, but when the weather turns hot, I switch it up with iced coffee. This is a super, simple recipe for making a delicious cup of joe without spending money at the coffee shop!
I love a good cup of coffee. I usually take my with a little cream. When I want to get fancy, I splurge on a “skinny” vanilla latte. Now, here’s the thing. When it’s hot outside, which living in the South mean sky high humidity, I can only drink something hot first thing in the morning. That’s why I had to some up with a way to get my caffeine fix in the afternoons. I did a little research and found out that I can make my own “cold brew” right at home. All I need is some good coffee, my french press or some cheese cloth and a bowl. Add in some cold water and a little time and you’ve got the makings of something great.
When the weather turns hot, switch up your morning with iced coffee.
- 1/2 cup ground coffee - Caribou Colombian
- 4 cups water
- Pour into a french press and let sit 16 hours or overnight.
- You can also use a container covered with a cheese cloth - add coffee and slowly pour water over to strain. May take several times pouring water but worth it!
- Once you have your "juice", store in fridge until ready to use.
It makes enough for about 3 large cups of iced coffee.
I mix mine with sugar free vanilla skim 1/2 & 1/2 and ice.
