Hey there, it’s me again! Becca, from The Driving Miss Macey blog. I’ve popped on here to share a few things I love with you guys before, and today I’m here to share one of the easiest summer drinks with you!
What’s better than an iced coffee on a blazing hot summer day? How about a BLENDED iced coffee!? Um, yes please. My coffee-loving husband and I recently took to the kitchen blender to make a simple blended coffee recipe that you can easily make at home! It’s so basic that there’s no recipe, just a few tips!
What you’ll need:
- your favorite blend of coffee, brewed (fresh or leftover)
- ice (optional if you use one of my tips below)
- your favorite creamer or sweetener (we love Chobani’s vanilla coffee creamer)
After you gather your ingredients, add desired ratios (we all have different sweetness preferences) and blend. Super simple, I know, but after making this a bunch - I have some tips to share!
Tip #1: My first tip is to freeze your leftover coffee from the day before in ice trays! We have saved SO MUCH coffee this way. I always felt bad about pouring the leftover coffee down the drain and now I look forward to a pot that wasn’t completely finished haha!
Tip #2: If you did freeze your coffee, try to take the tray out to “soften” the ice slightly prior to blending, maybe 8-10 minutes before you blend. This makes the blending process easier (you avoid those annoying ice chunks) and creates a nice creamy texture, especially when you add your creamer in!
Tip #3: Pour into something cute for maximum enjoyment. ☺️
And there ya have it! Cheers to caffeine and simplicity.
We all need a little of that, especially in the craziness of summertime!
