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

Brew the Coffee

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.

Sweeten and Flavor:

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.

Cool the Coffee: 

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.

Prepare Your Glass: 

Take a tall glass and fill it with ice cubes. The more ice, the colder and more refreshing your iced coffee will be.

Pour the Coffee: 

Once the sweetened coffee has cooled, pour it over the ice in your glass. Leave some room at the top for milk.

Add 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.

Garnish (Optional): 

If you want to take your iced coffee to the next level, add a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Serve and Enjoy:

 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!
