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!!!

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?

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?

Ingredients
For the Iced Coffee:
  • 8 ounces dark roast coffee grounds
  • 4 quarts filtered water or tap water
For the Sweetened Homemade Creamer:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Optional addins
  • coffee syrups
  • sugar
  • caramel
  • chocolate syrup
  • cinnamon
Instructions
For the Coffee:
  1. Pour half the water in two half-gallon pitchers. Sprinkle 4 ounces ground coffee over the water in both pitchers. Cover and let sit 30 minutes; after 30 minutes, stir.
  2. Cover again and let sit at room temperature overnight.
  3. Line a fine mesh strainer with a double layer of fine cheesecloth or a coffee filter set over a large bowl or pitcher. Pour the coffee mixture through the strainer and allow the liquid to run through. The coffee mixture will take several minutes to strain, and will need to be done about 2 cups at a time. When finished, discard the coffee grounds.
  4. Pour the strained coffee in a covered container in the fridge until cooled.
For the Homemade Sweetened Creamer:
  1. In a pitcher or bowl whisk together the heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk. Store in the fridge in an airtight container until ready for use.
To assemble your iced coffee:
  1. Fill a glass with ice (or better yet, coffee ice!). Pour 3/4 full with coffee. Fill the remaining 1/4 with the creamer mixture. If you prefer a sweeter and creamier iced coffee you can do equal parts instead.
  2. Add in optional add-ins if desired.
  3. Enjoy!

Where is the video to this besides on YouTube? I need some videos on cold brew and ice coffee alone with the recipes to post on FB. Other recipes I see on FB doesn't come from YT and it gives a link to this site.

Want to try this recipe but am confused. Your directions call for coffee grounds but the video looks like you are using coffee beans. Is it grounds or beans? Thanks for the directions....can't wait to try.
    Becky Hardin
    Hey! I'm so sorry...that's an error in the video that I'm actually having redone. You use GROUNDS, not beans. SO sorry for the confusion! Thanks for saying something :)

      Also, dark roast has WAY less caffeine than light roast. FYI! =)
