I love iced coffee in hot weather. But I do NOT care for sweet things in the morning so the vanilla-infused version that is my favorite doesn't suit that time of day. It took some experimentation, but I've come up with a tasty version of iced coffee that works properly as a morning, wake-me-up drink. The minimal amount of Splenda mellows the flavor without making the drink taste sweet. Prep time does not include brewing the coffee. Best to do that the night before.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 -10 ounces double strong coffee, cold (I prefer half-caf or half decaf and half dark roast)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon milk or 1 -2 tablespoon cream, to taste
  • 0.5 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute (or equivalent in preferred sweetener)
  • 1 pinch cinnamon or 1 pinch cocoa powder
  • ice

Directions

  1. Fill a tall glass 2/3 full of ice.
  2. Add cream and Splenda.
  3. Dust ice with cinnamon or cocoa powder.
  4. Fill with coffee and stir well.
