Iced Coffee

Coffee happens to be my favorite hot drink. I love drinking it during cold nights. Since you are in summer I can't enjoy it that much, only the heat that is. I googled a little about how I can still enjoy it in this heat and came across this cool recipe =)

Coffee doesn't have to be served as a hot drink all the time. This iced coffee recipe will cool you down on a warm day. This is a quick and easy iced coffee recipe using instant coffee. I make this often after I come home from a long day at work or at school to give me that little boost until it's time to go to bed. 

The proportions I proposed makes an average strength coffee drink. Feel free to change them to fit your desires. Please do not to make this drink too strong (too much coffee/sugar) or your heart will start racing. It's happened to me once or twice and it's not a nice feeling. 

Sometimes people will spice their iced coffees. I've listed some ideas for you to try if you wish. Start with 1/4 teaspoon and add more if you want it to smell stronger. A combination of spices/flavors could be interesting! ;) 


Total time: 15 min

Ingredients (1 serving)
1/2 cup water
1 - 1 and 1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 tablespoon white sugar
ice cubes

Spices and Flavors (optional):
Part 1 (15 min)
Fill a large glass with 1/2 cup of water (1). 
 Microwave it on high for 30 sec to warm it but do not boil the water (2). 
Add 1 tablespoon of instant coffee and mix (3). 
Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of white sugar (4). 
Add some spices/flavours while the mixture is still warm (optional). 
Mix it well (5). 
Cool it in the freezer for 5 min (or fridge for 10 min) (6). 
Add 1 cup of milk (7
and mix (8). 
Add some ice cubes (9).

iced coffee 
  • If you have brewed coffee: add 1/2 cup of brewed coffee for step 1 and skip step 2 and 3, then proceed as usual for the rest of the recipe.
  • If you're using cream instead of milk: add the cream (usually 1 or 2 tablespoons is enough) after you add the sugar in step 4. Then in step 7, add water
  • If you want a black iced coffee (with instant coffee): add water instead of the milk in step 7. Also add additional coffee/sugar if it's too dilute for you (no more than 1 tablespoon of each, otherwise it's just too strong and your heart will be racing all day).
