I find myself giving up coffee once the warmer temperatures hit. Let my clarify. I find myself giving up HOT coffee. Last summer I purchased this great little pitcher that allows me to brew coffee and store it in the refrigerator for tasty iced coffee drinks. And Ill be honest. Im pretty obsessed with it.

Crafting your own iced coffee beverages at home can actually be quite simple and definitely more cost effective than running to your local coffee shop every time youre craving one of these chilled drinks. With just a couple of ingredients such as vanilla extract and sugar, you can mix up your own iced vanilla.

I prefer to use almond milk in my iced drinks. It offers a lighter flavor than regular milk and is more gentle on the stomach! I prefer to use the Original Almond Breeze, which allows me to mix in my own flavors but you can also try the vanilla or unsweetened varieties.

I recommend brewing your coffee ahead of time and making it a little bit stronger than usual. When it is poured over the ice and mixed with the almond milk it will weaken the flavor just a bit. Enjoy!
