Whether you prefer traditional, slushy, or something in between, these simple steps will make preparing your dream iced coffee as easy as making a regular coffee. This recipe is more about the method and less about the ingredients; feel free to change it up based on your favorite flavors.
Combine first three ingredients and stir in just enough hot water to dissolve completely. (If clumps remain, you can pour the mixture through a sieve to get rid of them.)
Add additional water to the mixture for easy freezing.
Pour mixture into ice cube tray and freeze for at least two hours or overnight.
Remove ice cube tray from freezer and allow to thaw for 15 minutes.
In a two-pound container with a tight lid, combine six cubes with approximately three cups of milk. Shake vigorously for two minutes or until ice cubes are dissolved and the container is halfway filled with luxurious frothy yumminess!
Add more cubes or milk to taste and enjoy!
Combine dry ingredients and stir in just enough hot water to dissolve completely. (If clumps remain, you can pour the mixture through a sieve to get rid of them.) The mixture should be syrup-like.
Refrigerate until cool.
To assemble a classic iced coffee, fill the bottom of a cup with syrup, add regular ice cubes and milk, and stir to combine.
Bonus! The extras make a spectacular syrup that’s perfect for drizzling over your favorite desserts!
Adjust sugar or sweetener according to your preference: use 1/4 cup sugar per teaspoon of sugar you usually put in your coffee. For example, if you use three teaspoons of sugar, use a full 3/4 cup sugar here.
