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!

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! Made for ZWT 9, for the Gourmet Goddesses.
