Beat the heat and satisfy your caffeine cravings with our delightful homemade iced coffee recipe.
2 cups brewed coffee 2 tablespoons of sugar (adjust to taste) 1/4 cup of milk 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract Ice cubes For garnish (optional): 6. Whipped cream Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder Caramel syrup Cinnamon powder
Start by brewing a strong cup of coffee using your preferred method. You can use a coffee maker, French press, or pour-over. Make sure the coffee is hot.
While the coffee is still hot, add the granulated sugar and stir until it completely dissolves. If you like a hint of vanilla, add the vanilla extract and mix well.
Allow the sweetened coffee to cool down to room temperature. You can speed up this process by placing it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Take a tall glass and fill it with ice cubes. The more ice, the colder and more refreshing your iced coffee will be.
Once the sweetened coffee has cooled, pour it over the ice in your glass. Leave some room at the top for milk.
Pour your preferred milk (or dairy-free alternative) into the glass. You can adjust the amount based on your taste preferences. Stir the coffee and milk together until well combined.
If you want to take your iced coffee to the next level, add a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Insert a straw or a long spoon, give it a final stir if needed, and savor your homemade iced coffee. Enjoy the cool, caffeinated goodness on a warm day!
