Be Your Own Barista: Sweet Iced Coffee

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

I adore iced coffee drinks in the summer, and I still crave them in the winter…as long as I’m safe inside my house and wrapped in a thick, heavy sweater. Smooth and creamy, they’re the perfect midday snack to get you through that 3:00 p.m. hour when the day seems to be dragging on forever.

Recently on a trip to Smucker’s headquarters in Orrville, Ohio, I had the pleasure of trying out a few of their test kitchen recipes. This was one of them, adapted to suit my personal preference a bit.

Sweet Iced Coffee for One

1 cup cold, brewed coffee poured into ice cube trays and frozen
1 cup hot, fresh brewed coffee (like Folgers Black Silk)
1 tablespoon vanilla syrup
2 tablespoons half and half

In a cup, add the coffee ice cubes. Pour the vanilla syrup over and add the hot coffee. Stir in the half and half and enjoy.

Makes 1 serving.

    An iced coffee has precisely two ingredients: coffee, and ice. This iced coffee recipe starts with strongly brewed coffee, so it’s a great way to use up cold coffee leftovers.
    This iced coffee is easy to make, and makes a great drink to have in the fridge on hot summer mornings or anytime you want an energy boost.
