Even if I'm out of fruit I have an iced coffee each morning. I really stink at making good, hot coffee so I use instant for my iced coffee.
Iced coffee recipe
- Instant coffee (your desired strength)
- 1 TBSP Brown sugar
- 12 Milk OR 4oz of half and half.
- H2O (if I use half and half)
Add the instant coffee and brown sugar to your glass. Pour the milk over it, but leave enough space to add ice. Let the coffee and milk sit for a minute or two so the instant coffee dissolves. Stir, add ice and stir again.
If you use half and half; add water to make up the difference in the glass.
It's simple, fresh and crisp.
Everyone's dairy options differ. Several years ago I changed my dairy options, and sweetener during contest prep. (Click here for the 100 Calorie chocolate iced coffee). However, these days I prefer to use milk and cream even when I compete. I fit the macro's into my program and this works for me. However. you may prefer these options instead.
- Almond milk
- Soy milk
- Rice milk
- Hemp drink
- Coconut drink
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Unsweetened soy milk
- Unsweetened rice milk
- Unsweetened coconut drink
It's all a matter of taste, but I found that most of the alternatives make a good iced coffee. The milk alternatives are also good for for those who are lactose intolerant, or for anyone who prefer not to drink cow's milk.
