I really liked the idea of adding honey to the ice coffee. I never had it this sweet so it was a real change for me, but it made the coffee lighter, as I'vr always found iced coffee too heavy when it is strong.
The honey is a great idea. Mixes easily into already cold coffee and changes up the taste just right. I made this vegan for ZWT9 and was not happy with the results. I used agave syrup, which I felt didn't add enough flavor, and almond milk. The almond milk was so thin, that if I was making it agiain I would just replace all the water used in making the coffee with almond milk.
I have to admit, I drank the first cup warm after tasting it this morning. It was just so cozy-tasting that I couldn't resist drinking it. Then this afternoon I made it the right way with ice. I like it equally both ways! I mixed the honey into the strong, hot coffee after brewing to ensure it would mix in all the way. Then I added mostly fat free half-and-half instead of all milk, because my milk is only 1%. (Just a personal preference.) It is creamy and not so awfully sweet, and very comforting! I will make this often. Thanks loof, for a keeper recipe! ZWT9
Gotta say I'm a bit surprised by this! It's such a simple little recipe, but it's sooooo good! I just threw all the ingredients into the magic bullet for a few seconds until it turned slushy. Sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top. Yum! The foam separated from the coffee in the pics, but it was still a nice looking drink! The honey is very subtle but enough to make a difference. Delish!
This is a great way for me to drink the leftover coffee my DH leaves me in the mornings :) The honey dissolves better than sugar and adds a nicer flavor. I really enjoyed this today and will be making it alot more often!
Oh, how I needed this today! !00 degrees here. Very good, easily could be sold at Starbucks! Made for ZWT9
The temperature was over 90 today and having left over coffee from breakfast this was a cooling way to use it. I made a double batch using almond milk and eyeballing the honey. The ingredients were placed in the Vita-Mix with a generous amount of ice cubes and given a whirl. The result was a Starbucks quality iced coffee without the price or the guilt. Made for ZWT9.
Iced coffee is called a 'frappe' here (there should be an accent on the 'e', but my keyboard won't do it!LOL). I think a very lightly-flavoured honey is more appropriate to allow the coffee to star. I used greek thyme honey, which did overpower the drink. I do love my iced coffee in summer, and I appreciated the little 'trick' of using honey instead of sugar.
This was a delicious iced coffee loof. I really enjoyed the flavor of this treat, it had a really nice balance. It was quick and really easy to make. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy often. Made for ZWT9. Update: Today, its so hot here that I was feeling lazy, so I threw all the ingredients into the blender and enjoyed this lovely coffee as a slushy. Wanted you to know that it was wonderful. Thanks again :lol:
This recipe couldn't have entered my life on a better day! It is meltingly hot outside and my kiddos were begging for a trip to the park, so I threw this together quickly in my individual sized blender and we hit the road. It was so cool and refreshing for a hot morning at the park :). I reduced the honey a bit because I don't like my coffee too sweet, but otherwise kept the recipe as is. Thanks, loof!
