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!

Head on over to Rocks In My Dryer for lots more ideas!!

I used to make something similar to this and Holy Cow is it gooooood. I'm going to have to make it again, soon! Thanks!

I'm a sucker for Frapps at any given time, thanks for the recipe I'm trying it out ASAP! =)

Ohhh - this looks so good! I don't have any sweetened condensed milk on hand, but I'll have to pick some up next time I'm at the store and give it a try. Thanks!

I'm not sure if I should thank you profusely for saving me money at Starbuck's or curse you for adding pounds to my weight... this sounds so easy & addicting! ;o)

Yum, sounds good! Thanks for sharing.

That sounds DELICIOUS - and I was all geared up to make some right away but realized we're out of vanilla. I would definitely add some chocolate syrup - because, well, chocolate makes everything better. :-) My hubby will love it!

Yummy. I'll have to try this one. $4 a pop is just too much to drink one from Starbucks that often.

I'm more apt to just pour my coffee over some vanilla ice cream... ;)

YUM! Can't wait to try! I love coffee, but agree, that I can't spend $4.00 each time I need a coffee fix! ;)
