Easy 2 Minute Iced Coffee

Introduction: Easy 2 Minute Iced Coffee

About: Female rider and JeepHer. Cat and bun mom. I love beer and coffee equally. Marvel fan; I stan both Captains America and Marvel. Proud Hufflepuff.

Iced coffee is just as good, if not better, than hot coffee. But, lets face it, who wants to pay at least $4 for one at a coffee shop and who has time to brew a pot of coffee, especially when a craving hits.

So, for the busy, budget wise iced coffee craver I give you easy 2 minute iced coffee.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: 1. Making the Coffee

To make the coffee you will need:
- 1 cup of water
- 2 heaping tsp of instant coffee grounds

1. Boil water.
2. Put water in your favorite cup or mug, add coffee grounds, and stir.

Done with that!

Step 2: Cooling It Down

To cool things down you will need:

- 1 cup of ice cold milk or water
- 4or 5 ice cubes
- Sugar to taste

1. Add milk/water to coffee and stir.
2. Add ice cubes.
3. Add sugar to taste, I find 3 packets of Sweet N' Low work well.

Add whipped cream, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, etc for a better coffee shop look.

Enjoy your quick and delicious iced coffee, but be warned. The combination of ease and deliciousness makes it extremely addictive. You may find yourself chugging at least 2 of these.

     If you make it without milk, it even faster ;)

    That is true. However, you must use hot water to make the instant coffee properly so using cold milk (or water) cools the drink down a lot quicker. The milk also helps to adjust the strength of the drink since twice as many granules of coffee are being used.

    If you use half hot water to dissolve the instant coffee, and then add ice water, it will cool it down. For those of us who don't usually add cream/sugar/other flavorings to our coffee, from here we would just add ice. It may be a little strong at first, but not for long. Melting ice waters it down. Adjust the instant coffee for taste. I also might add that I don't think of instant coffee as "grounds". Those are usually regular coffee. I think instant is either a powder or granules. I could be wrong though.

     in the truth ain't that hard... you just have to memorize the root of words... not much... I think portuguese harder than english (accentuation and stuff).... My school's teacher keep yeling english is the easier foreign language to learn...

    in fact, I learned all I know alone, with games and internet! \o/ (of course google translator give a hand when you need... but that's history for other our :-P)

    but.... if you don't are pretty good, most people just shoot you out it's messeger... hehehe

    I want to learn english for busines, interchange and after that, busines... anyway, I'll be programer, so, I will need to learn either way, wishing or not....
