blended iced coffee

I’ve been on an iced coffee kick lately.  I suppose I’m always on a coffee kick, but my newfound love of cold-brewed coffee has taken that kick to a new level. 🙂

I’ve been experimenting with different amounts of coffee to water ratios, different types of coffee, different coffee additions…you get the idea.  I recently tried a variation on this recipe for blended iced coffee from the Boulder Coffee Examiner.

Here’s my version of the recipe: (I’m sure the original is just as good, but I didn’t have all the ingredients at the time…)

  • 1 c. strong cold-brewed coffee
  • 1 T. sugar (I think I actually used approximately 2 tsp. sugar plus half a packet of Stevia)
  • 1/2 c. whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. ice cubes (I used coffee ice cubes I had made the day before)

Combine everything in a blender until creamy.  Yum.

The original says it serves two, but it’s a one-serving recipe in my book.  I used half as much ice as the original recipe since I wasn’t really wanting a frappe.  One cup of ice cubes was plenty.

Yep, that’s a boba straw.  We have like 4 packages of boba straws.  You can ask Eric about that. 🙂
