Sunday in the Kitchen - My Homemade Iced Coffee

I kind of feel like I'm flaking on posting a "real" recipe but it's getting late and I'm tired and not currently doing well with food or exercise or tracking so it is what it is.

This is very basic. I, personally, don't like strong coffee and once I actually added up how much I was spending on Dunkin Donuts iced coffee I decided to start making my own. The coffee would be stronger if I had a coffee maker that made more than 4 cups at a time to be mixed into a 32 oz glass but I don't so this is how I currently drink it.

1 tbsp ground coffee
4 cups water
2 tsp half & half
1/4 tsp white granulated sugar
as many ice cubes as you can fit into your cup

I usually take a full tablespoon of ground coffee to make 4 cups of coffee in the coffee maker. I like flavored coffee so I usually use French Vanilla or Caramel Cream or Southern Pecan or whatever I have on hand. Then I pour it into my 32 oz glass (it fills up about half the glass), add the half and half and sugar and add as many ice cubes as will fit into the glass and raise the level to the top of the glass. Drink and enjoy! Yes, the coffee gets majorly diluted by the end but I like it that way plus it gives me more water in my day.

I'd like to get to the point where I'm not suing any sugar at all but I'm just not there yet.

  1. I find that in the summer, a good foot scrub is of the essence. I tend to spend most of my days barefoot (I work from home, so it's totally OK), Go to my blog
