Homemade Frozen coffee drinks
When I can't get out to get coffee, or just do not want to spend the money on a frozen blended coffee high, I make them at home.
1/2 cup of strong black coffee
1/2 cup of ice cubes
1/2 cup of Milk
2 tsp of sugar
Mix together in a blender at full power for 1 minute. Pour into tall glass and drink with a straw.
Now, I hate ice chips in my frozen drink. So, when I make a pot of coffee I freeze the left over coffee in an ice cube trays. I use these instead of plain ice for almost every frozen coffee recipe. I substitute in almond milk for regular milk at times. I sometimes use a bit of flavored creamer. I can adjust recipes to my liking. I may add whipped cream, or skip it. This goes for chocolate or caramel drizzle. I also get drink flavorings and make whatever I desire that day. Today I added chocolate syrup and a splash of vanilla. Very yummy! Have fun! It is a fraction of the cost when you make these at home!
