Iced Blended

Coffee Iced Blended

Are you a coffee lover? I do not consider myself a coffee lover, because I don’t drink hot coffee. I do enjoy the flavor of coffee cold like in ice cream and iced coffee drinks. My coffee drink of choice is a Starbucks Coffee Frappuccino. Since they carry a hefty price tag, I rarely have them. So, I have developed my own home recipes for blended coffees. If I have my coffee in the morning, I make it using Starbucks Via instant coffee. If I have it in the afternoon, I make it using Folger’s decaf instant coffee. Here is the basic recipe that I came up with:

  • 1 cup nonfat milk or whatever milk you prefer
  • 1 kitchen teaspoon of instant coffee (not a measuring teaspoon, but the spoon you eat cereal with.)
  • 1 teaspoon Nesquik (optional)
  • 1 kitchen teaspoon of sugar or whatever sweetener you prefer. I mix it up using turbinado, white sugar, or even molasses occasionally.
  • 12 ice cubes if you have an automatic ice cube maker, or 6 cubes if you have trays in your freezer. The photo shows the size of my ice cubes.

Place all ingredients into your blender and mix until you no longer hear little ticks of ice grinding. My blender is a Bosch. It is amazing. The ice blended is thoroughly mixed in about 20-30 seconds with a Bosch.

You might also try adding other flavors like mint or caramel.  My daughter uses Hershey’s in the brown bottle.  I can’t use it because I cannot have corn and it is sweetened with corn syrup.  Find a mix you like and you’ll be enjoying iced coffees from home anytime you like!
