Last fall, I fell in love with Chic Fil A’s Frosted Caramel Coffee. That beverage disappeared off of their menu and was replaced with their Frosted Coffee. Yay! Don’t worry, I will tell you how to make both.
Vanilla Ice Cream (preferred but frozen yogurt could be used) You will want a 3 to 1 ice cream ratio over your cold brew coffee
3/4 cup Cold Brew Coffee, unsweet
Blend to incorporate in your blender. Pour in a glass and enjoy!
To make Caramel Coffee Frosted, add a pump or two of caramel coffee syrup. I love both flavors.
I was given Barleans Greens Chocolate Silk Powder to create a recipe #Choctoberfest2017. Barleans makes healthy and nutritious products that are delicious. This Perk Me Up Smoothie has antioxidants from fruits and vegetables from the Barleans and protein from the Greek yogurt I used. This is one healthy coffee smoothie.
Coffee Ice Cubes, I froze one cup of coffee in an ice cube tray the night before
1 8 ounce plain or vanilla Greek or regular yogurt
1 scoop of Barleans Green Chocolate Silk Powder
1/4 – 1/2 cup whole, low fat, almond, soy, coffee creamer, whatever you prefer
Strawberry for garnish, optional
Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. You may add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick. This is my new replacement meal in the morning. It has everything, coffee, antioxidants from fruit and vegetables, chocolate and protein. It was my pleasure to work with Barleans again.
Just in time for National Coffee Month (August), I am giving you the best iced coffee recipe on the planet. Don’t like ice coffee? I wasn’t too fond of it myself until my friend Doreen turned me on to them. Now, I am hooked. This recipe is better than any you can order at a coffee shop or drive through window. You can even flavor it if you wish. I have some tips and suggestions in this recipe that will make it the best.
Coffee to make coffee ice cubes
Coffee creamer Dunkin Donuts Extra Creamy*
Additional coffee for your cup/glass
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional**
Bailey’s Irish Cream Liquour, optional***
I use coffee in some of my recipes. When I need coffee for a recipe, I make it in a cream pitcher or gravy boat. Why? Because it has a spout and makes pouring so much easier, especially in your ice cube tray.
Fill your glass, mug or beverage container with the coffee ice cubes you have made. I did 60-40 ratio of cream and coffee. I knew as the ice melted, my drink would not water down. It’s totally up to you how much cream or coffee you put in your glass. Insert straw and enjoy the deliciousness!
*I am not a paid spokesperson for Dunkin Donuts Creamer but I am telling you it’s the best to use in ice coffee.
**No need to buy syrups for flavored vanilla coffee. I added vanilla extract and it was delicious.
**Not a paid spokesperson for Baileys either but it sure is tasty in coffee.
