DIY – Cheap, Quick and Healthy Iced Coffee

Published by Donna Coppack on

It is too hot out there at the moment, but I need coffee to wake me up, and I am currently trying to be more healthy so no trips to Starbucks for me.

1.  Fill cute glass 1/3rd full with ice
2. Put a spoon of instant coffee and your sweetener/sugar of choice in a small cup/glass
3.  Pour about 2-3tbsps of boiling water on and stir thoroughly.
4. Fill glass with cold milk – I used about 200ml of skimmed
5. Pour on coffee mixture
6. Add straw

That's a really good tip. I spend far too much money in Starbucks. Not sure why I never think to try making my own – I'm going to try this recipe now! Thanks for sharing 🙂 x

I have Iced Coffee every morning….a small addiction.
I sometimes buy the Starbucks packets…just add water, ice, and milk. Often I will make my own by brewing a pot of double strength coffee (this can be kept in a pitcher in the fridge), sweetening while still hot, then pour over ice with a splash of milk…delicious and cheap!
