Vanilla Iced Coffee -- Simple and Easy

Total Time
Prep 1 min
Cook 0 mins

It only takes a minute to make up a tall, cold glass of this refreshing, hot-weather drink. You've probably got all the ingredients on hand. While its best if you thought ahead to make some double-strong coffee, that last mugfull that got cold in the pot will do. ;) (I confess, I can't afford to use real vanilla all the time. The artificial kind works just fine in this for my tastes).

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
  • 1 (1 g) packet Splenda sugar substitute, to taste (or more, or equivalent in preferred sweetener)
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ice


  1. Fill a tall glass 2/3 full of ice.
  2. Add cream, Splenda, and vanilla.
  3. Add coffee and stir well.

What a nice simple ice coffee to put together, great if you don't have any flavoured syrup on hand. Thanks for posting!
