I’m not going to try to make you do anything complicated with this Iced Coffee Recipe. I want things to be EASY and SIMPLE, especially in the morning. I am NOT a morning person, and coffee is something I need right away to even be pleasant to those around me.

Even though we aren’t going to be doing anything super stressful, I’m also not going to let you use chilled brewed coffee. We are better than that, come on!

Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

This Cold Brew Coffee Recipe is as simple as letting your favorite coffee grounds soak in water overnight, straining in the morning, and then mixing with our favorite perfect homemade creamer. You can use as little or as much as you want, to make this Iced Coffee exactly how you like it. You can keep the creamer and cold brew separate in the fridge and enjoy every morning. Sounds awesome, right?

Easy Iced Coffee Recipe

You can pour over ice or make coffee ice cubes (just freeze brewed coffee in cute ice cube trays and you’re in business!) and you’re ready to rock any day. Our creamer is an amazing mixture of half and half (milk and cream) and sweetened condensed milk. SHHHHHH! Don’t tell anyone. It can be our little secret.

It’s SO GOOD, creamy, and just the right touch of sweetness. Apart from the sweetened creamer, we aren’t going to add any extra sugar or sweetener to this coffee. Awesome, right?
