I used to like coffee. Then, I loved coffee.
But after my third boy was born…
Now, I NEED COFFEE!!!!
I enjoy a hot cup of joe in the cold winter mornings in Michigan. But now that it is no longer -50˚, and getting warmer… I am not really in the mood for hot coffee. I was despondent and cranky. I needed coffee, and was becoming desperate for a caffeine replacement. (Diet Coke is not a good substitute for coffee in the morning)
When I discovered Pioneer Woman’s Iced Coffee recipe, my world changed! So simple. So yummy! So Perfect!
Here is my take on it.
Begin by grinding a cup of your favorite coffee. (I am obsessed with Starbucks coffees…)
Pour your grounds into a gallon size pitcher.
(Yikes! Can you tell that this pitcher has been used quite a bit for this coffee recipe? Look at all those stains!)
My sister got this awesome dispenser for under $5! It’s perfect to hold our addiction and keep it cold and ready to dispense!
I really love the insulated re-usable cups. This one came with re-freezable ice cubes! They are perfect to use with iced coffee because they won’t water it down.
I add a little whole milk. You can add a little flavored creamer, some half & half or skim milk. Whatever is your fancy.
I also add a little Truvia packet for some sweetness.
Store your coffee in the fridge. It last up to two weeks. That is if you don’t drink it all in THREE DAYS!
