If you are addicted to coffee and need some new recipes for your favorite iced drink this summer, I found a few that are amazing. In the summer I love drinking cold coffee drinks. They give me enough caffeine to remain active all day while still being cold and refreshing during the hottest summer months.
Over the course of several summers I have learned a few ways to get that refreshing caffeine fix easily. All without spending loads of money hitting up the local gas station, Dunkin Donuts, or Starbucks. These days who can afford to hit up their local coffee joint on the daily?
I know I couldn’t. When we started saving all our money the first thing to go was my weekly Starbucks habit. Needing that sweet caffeine fix I learned how to create copycats of my favorite drinks. Surprisingly, I actually preferred the homemade ones instead.
You can make most of your favorite iced coffee drinks easily at home. I’m all about keeping things easy and saving loads of money while doing it. You may not even need any fancy equipment to do it.
Most of these recipes require nothing more than a decent blender or some ice cube trays to make coffee ice cubes. These smoothies are delicious, refreshing, and perfect for the busy mom’s needing that extra boost of caffeine.
Best Iced Coffee Drinks
Homemade Mocha Frappuccino
This mocha frapp is easy to make and takes very little time. If I know I’m going to want one of these on a hot afternoon I just take leftover coffee in my pot from the morning and stick it in the fridge. It’s a super easy way to not waste coffee too.
Coconut Cowgirl Coffee
I’m not a big fan of coconut flavors, though I love the smell. This ice coffee drink is chocolatey creamy goodness perfect to cure a mid day sweet tooth and cool down.
Iced Caramel Macchiato
I’m a sucker for Venti Iced Caramel Macchiato’s so this recipe was a life saver when I needed a quick drink. In a real pinch two 4 oz brews in a Keurig does the trick too.
