Make Your Own Iced Coffee + Recipe

Iced coffee is one of the most joyous drinks of summer, isn’t it? Icy cold caffeinated beverages help keep the hot summer temperatures at bay while soothing you with their tasty glory. Tasty, tasty glory.

Have you ever made your own iced coffee though? It’s the easiest thing in the whole amazing world. And I have a yummy recipe for you and you, and you in the corner. No need to spend upwards of $8 a cup at your local coffee shop when you can make it for around .50 cents a glass.

For realsies.

Below is the lowdown, (and the recipe!) for your very own tasty cold beverage. The main bummer about iced coffee is that the melting ice in the cup waters down the delicious flavor of the coffee, but don’t worry, I’ve got a way around that.


Step 1: Brew some coffee

Step 2: Cool coffee in refrigerator

Step 3: Add a dash of vanilla + stir

Step 4: Add ice cold creamer ice cubes

Step 5: Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar
