Quick and Easy Iced Coffee is the cool and refreshing drink you need to give you a burst of flavorful energy. It’s a great way to start your day or enjoy it as an afternoon treat.
When we moved, I treated myself to an espresso machine that lets me make fancy cappuccinos each morning. I saw no sense in having a coffee maker and an espresso machine, so I got rid of our old coffee maker. But I didn’t account for one very important fact…That I love my iced coffees in the hot summer!
And since I don’t have a coffee maker, I can’t keep a big jug of double-strength coffee in the fridge anymore. So, when I had the chance to test the new Folgers Iced Café concentrates, I couldn’t pass it up – the timing was perfect since I was looking for a solution until the heat starts to die down.
🍽️ Why This Recipe Works
- Four flavors | Vanilla, Caramel Macchiato, Hazelnut, Original
- One bottle has 12 servings | Cost is approx. 42¢ per iced coffee (plus cost of milk)
- Tiny and portable, which means coffee on demand wherever!
- Already sweetened, so there’s no need to add additional sweetener.
- No sugar or preservatives and only four to five ingredients per bottle (and two of them are coffee!)
What attracted me the most is how fast I can make a cup. My husband and I have tried each flavor, and my favorites are vanilla and caramel macchiato and his go-to is hazelnut.
Folgers Iced Café – It’s so tasty and I am sure you will have a favorite as well.
Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer – I can’t get enough coconut milk coffee creamer. It’s great for people who are trying to minimize dairy in their diets.
Stevia – Sweeten the iced coffee with some stevia if needed.
Almond Milk – A little bit of almond milk keeps it nice and creamy, just the way we like it. YUM!
Step One: Add the coconut coffee creamer to a glass. Then add in the Folger’s Iced Cafe. Give it a quick stir.
Step Two: Add ice and drizzle almond milk on top. Give it a swirl to gently combine the ingredients. Top with your favorite whipped cream and a little dash of cinnamon.
📌 Expert Tips
And when I’m having a cup later on in the day, I’m prone to play pretend-barista and whip out my milk frother (best money I’ve spent!) to make them resemble coffee shop drinks. So far I’ve used whole milk, almond milk, half and half and coconut milk coffee creamer to coffee-shop-up my lattes.
Yep! You will save tons of money by making these at home. Ordering from fancy coffee shops can lead to spending $5 – $7 for just one drink at that adds up quickly.
Yes, you sure can. I recommend skipping the ice until you are ready to actually drink it. But the rest can be combined and stored in the fridge for 1-2 days. Give it a shake and add some ice and toppings before drinking.
If you’re an iced coffee drinker, I’d love to hear which flavor you like the most!
