This easy iced coffee is for those who want to save some money. You know you can make great iced coffee at home.
As it warms up outside, hot coffee just seems silly. It seems like everywhere sells you cold iced coffee: gas stations, convenience stores, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts …
Don’t buy them!! Make your own and save yourself some money, calories and the environment. Look at you, everyone is eco-friendly with your Mason Jar!
Iced coffee is easy to make and I’ve been talking about homemade iced mochas for years, check out how to make an iced mocha at home and how to make a Starbucks iced mocha .
All you have to do is make coffee. I use a french press because I don’t have room on my kitchen counter for another appliance, but you can use your drip coffee maker and carafe.
Then you fill a 1.5 cup Mason jar (or whatever you want to use) about 1/2 full with coffee.
Store it in the fridge for when you’re ready for a treat. Mason jars will stare at you when you open the fridge, waiting for action. If you have a partner or child who might steal them, hide them in the back.
When you’re ready, take it out of the fridge, add ice and whatever else you like in your coffee. I like mine with a little milk. If you add sugar, it’s best to use a sugar syrup like agave syrup because it takes a while for the sugar to dissolve in the iced coffee.
If you like flavors, add vanilla or chocolate syrup and enjoy.
Remember, your drink is also portable, so there’s no need to transfer more dollars to Starbucks or Dunkin’.
