I am a total ice coffee snob! I have tried a lot of "easy" ways to try and make my own ice coffee at home and I always fail... until now! I am a mom of two (2 year old and 4 month old) I need simple and this is not just simple, but is really good. I no longer crave the coffee shop ice coffee, I crave my DIY coffee!
Step 1: Gather the Goods
Items You Will Need:
- Trader Joe's Coffee Concentrate (Secret Ingredient)
- Half and Half
- Sweetener ( I use vanilla syrup)
Step 2: Mix the Goods
The way the Coffee Concentrate works is you mix it with 1 Part Coffee to 2 Parts Water. This will take a few trials to get the right mixture you like. I use a 20oz Mason Jar Tumbler that has markings on it to mix my ice coffee. Here is one on Amazon similar to mine.
I then use four pumps vanilla syrup and top it off with half and half.
Lastly, what is ice coffee with out LOTS of ice!
Tip: I make my ice coffee about an hour to thirty minutes before I leave in the morning and once its all mixed I let it sit in the fridge to get colder and I feel it tastes even better!
