WFMW - iced coffee treat

Finally, summer is here! At my house, that means long trips to the pool, entire days spent outside, and lots of watermelon.

It also means that most days, I’m one tired Mama.

One afternoon, desperate for a caffeine fix, but needing to stay home with a napping child, I concocted the following:

Mama needs Caffeine Iced Vanilla Coffee Treat

Fill a tall glass with ice.

Pour leftover coffee from the morning into the glass, filling about halfway.

Fill the next quarter of the glass with vanilla creamer (can be sugar free, if you want).

Now fill the rest of the glass with milk.

It’s not Starbucks, but it sure hits the spot on a hot summer afternoon! (And, as a bonus, it doesn’t cost four dollars a pop.)

Now make yourself a coffee treat and head over to Rocks in my Dryer and peruse more great recipes, five ingredients or less!

I bet it tastes better and costs less than Starbucks too! Great tip!

This sounds great! Thanks for the tip. I personally love McDonald's iced coffees but I'm not always in the mood to drive for one. This is a great substitute!

mom I'm bored -- It's definitely NOT as good as Starbucks...but in a pinch, it tastes great!

Anything with coffee in it is not a bad thing and this sounds good enough to hit the spot on these warm summer days!

Aren't I lucky? I had leftover coffee and instead of pouring it on my geraniums (they are acid loving plants) I saved it. Must have been a God thing! I am going to make myself some of your yummy drink, hide in the laundry room and read some of my book. (I have boys too!)

even just "ice"
sounds good to me today.

my laundry is in the basement
which is
a very quiet place to hide.

Mmmm.. I love iced coffee. We don't have a Starbucks close by, but I like the Burger King mocha joes. They are pretty good.

I also like experimenting with making my own.. I'll have to try your way now. Thanks! :)

Awesome tip thanks!

Sounds SO GOOD! I think I'll make one now! ; )

That's not a bad idea. We keep cold pressed coffee in the fridge along side our iced tea. I have a simple recipe if you want it. Just let me know!

I tried this today and it's very good! I bet if I whipped it up in the blender it would be like a frappacino! Mmmmm....
