I am like the tides. And I like my iced coffee, okay? Scratch that, I need my iced coffee. Daily.
However, that daily iced coffee routine was cutting into my summer fun (read: yard sales) budget in a big way, and I'm sure it wasn't helping my waistline either. This summer, in order to have both my daily iced coffee and money for yard sale purchases, I decided to make my own iced coffee rather than dropping $5.00 at Dunkin' Donuts each morning. Enter The Pioneer Woman's perfect iced coffee recipe.
I gave it a try, and I love love love it! It has saved my mornings and my budget. All you need to make it is coffee grounds and water, and then whatever accompaniments you demand of your caffeine serving. I like half-and-half along with a splash of caramel flavor in my iced coffee.
After I took the above picture, I realized that some of the ingredients are hard to see. So I rearranged everything on another countertop and took another picture:
You can see the ingredients and final product, but everything is blurry. When it comes to photography, I am certainly not The Pioneer Woman. Though it might help if I drank the iced coffee before I started snapping pictures in the morning.
Note to self: caffeine intake first, taking pictures second.
I am really happy with this iced coffee recipe. Not only does it taste exactly like what I used to buy at the drive-thru each morning, but it costs a LOT less. Seriously, the savings is amazing! Last summer, I spent $20-25 each week just on iced coffee. This year, I spent just $20 on ingredients to make iced coffee all summer long. You do the math!
Really, math isn't my thing. You do it.
And give PW's perfect iced coffee recipe a try. You'll be glad you did!
