Works For Me: Cold Coffee Recipe
Caution: This recipe is NOT for the calorie conscious!!
I love, love, love fancy cold coffees! But, at $4 each, I have to make it an occasional splurge. I have discovered this recipe that is inexpensive to make and so delicious. It may not be quite as good as Starbucks, but when I have a mad craving for a cold coffee, I can whip this up at home. And that definitely works for me!!
2 T. instant coffee (I use a little less)
3/4 cup warm water
1 can Fat Free Sweetened Condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups ice.
Dissolve coffee granules into warm water. Pour into blender. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Blend. Gradually add ice until you reach desired consistency.
You could also add other things to fancy it up a bit more: chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, etc... Make it your own!
