Especially in the summer time, it's great for when it's a hot Oklahoma morning and hot coffee just adds to the misery. I use to get a fantastic iced coffee syrup by Nestle but they stopped making it, or no one in my town sells it. I have always wanted to try to make my own but never did until Sunday morning.
I read a few recipes on the internet and then decided to just wing it.
OKIE'S ICED COFFEE MIX
Brew 4 cups of water with 12 scoops coffee
10 spoons of Sweet N Low (the spoon that comes with the package, or 10 packets)
4 Tablespoons of dark chocolate shavings
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Add the Sweet N Low, chocolate and vanilla after the coffee is finished brewing. Stir until ingredients are dissolved. Poor liquid in a container and once cooled place in fridge to chill. To serve use equal parts of milk and Ice Coffee Mix and add ice...ENJOY!
My daughter use to love the Nestle we use to get and when I let her try this one she said "that has too much of a coffee taste". I told her "well that is why it is called iced coffee!". She said she prefers it more "syrupy". I think she meant sweet! HA HA
I've never been an iced coffee fan but then I'm not a big coffee drinker, either. But this sounds refreshing on a hot day, for sure.ReplyDelete
The coffee syrup by Nestles is now only available in Canada. I used to love it, too! International Delight now makes a pre-made iced coffee (You can find it in the refrigerator section in the grocery store)that's pretty good!ReplyDelete
I miss the Nestle "Ice Java", too! International Delight has a pre-made iced coffee that's pretty good. You can find it in the refrigerator section at the grocery store.ReplyDelete
