French Vanilla Iced Coffee

July 15, 2019

I absolutely love a refreshing glass of cold iced coffee to perk me up in the middle of a tough day. My homemade french vanilla iced coffee recipe hits the spot every time!

Especially since I am in the middle of trying to potty train a 22 month of stubborn little girl! All those blog posts that claim you can potty train your toddler in 3 days flat are just flat out lying!! Or I am just an idiot and can't figure out the miracle method they are using...but that's another post for another day!!

I am an iced coffee fiend!! I hit up Starbucks every time I head into the city, which isn't often and it's a treat for me and the teens. I have tried many homemade recipes just to pour them down the drain because they are just to bitter.

I finally tried this recipe and fell in love! It can be somewhat time consuming and patience is needed just to warn you. It is so worth the wait.

Go and snag you a dark roast or espresso blend. The darker the better!! The Cafe Espresso brand is the best for this recipe.

Dump the entire package into a gallon tea pitcher. Fill it up with water covering all the grounds. Make sure you kinda push the grounds back down into the water because they sometimes wanna rise to the top. Cover the top with a little clear wrap and place it in the fridge overnight.

The next morning strain your grounds through a cheesecloth. Now your iced coffee is ready to use!

My next tip is what can make or break your iced coffee. 

Use coffee ice cubes. Fill up ice cube trays with your leftover coffee and freeze it! No one likes watered down iced coffee, and using these coffee cubes will keep that from happening!

Now for the fun part! There are endless possibilities in making the magic creations! I love French vanilla but you can use any flavored creamer that you like.

1-Fill glass with your ice made with frozen coffee.

2- Fill glass half full of coffee concentrate.

3- Then splash in some milk until 2/3 full.

4- Top off with French Vanilla coffee creamer or creamer of choice

5- Place 2-3 Tablespoons of sweet condensed milk into your cup!

Stir and ENJOY!!

What are your favorite iced coffee combinations??
