DIY Frozen Coffee Drink

Not sure if I have mentioned this before but one of the things I want to do this summer is figure out how to make really good iced coffee at home. I know it isn't really that much money to go out and get some but after a while it does add up. So in my search of ideas on how to achieve my ice coffee I came across a frozen type recipe as of course I had to try it out.

Frozen Coffee Drink

Savory Sweet Life

1.5 cups of crushed iced

2-1 ounce shots of espresso *read below using coffee as a substitute

3/4 cup of milk

3 tbl. of sugar (more or less depending on preference)

*If you don’t have an espresso machine, use 3/4 cup of double strength (strong) coffee mixed with 1/2 cup of milk and increased crushed iced amount by 1/4 cup.

Blend all the ingredients except the whipped cream in a blender for 30-45 seconds. Pour into a tall glass and top off with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate syrup. Best served with a straw. Enjoy!

Review: OH MY GOODNESS!!! I have been making some double strength coffee in the morning so I can have iced coffee in the afternoons (one thing I have learned from reading all the recipes for iced coffee). I decided that yesterday I would try this recipe out instead of just having iced coffee. It came out perfect the first time I made it which was a relief since I tried a different one a couple of weeks ago and it was horrible. I really think the success was due to having the ice crushed before you put it in the blender or before you add the rest of the stuff. I can't wait to try it flavored next time.
