This is just a very basic iced coffee, but you could use a dark roasted or flavored coffee to make it something special. You could also turn it into a cocktail by adding a teaspoon or two of Kahlua with your cream and sugar.

  1. Make coffee in your coffee pot with coffee & water listed under Coffee Cubes (just double amounts for two people, triple for three, etc.), and allow to cool.
  2. Pour into an ice tray and freeze.
  3. Make additional coffee (I like medium to strong).
  4. Add milk and sugar to hot coffee, if desired.
  5. You can throw everything in the blender at this point if you like a smooth consistency like I do, or you can just put the cubes in a tall glass and pour in the freshly brewed coffee (hint: Place a long teaspoon in each glass to prevent it from cracking if adding hot coffee directly).

A wonderful morning staple for those mornings when it 75 degrease at 5:00 a.m. Have made iced coffee for years but putting it in the blender with coffee ice cubes makes it into a frothy treat. Thanks so much for the post.

This is wonderful. I love that it doesn't get watered down when you add the coffee 'ice'. A refreshing summer drink - it can almost be termed a dessert!
