I love coffee. Period. I can't really pinpoint when I started my coffee dependency, but once I learned about those magic beans, I was hooked for sure! Roaming the halls of most schools, you will come across teachers with coffee mugs, travel cups, Starbucks cups, bowls, sippy cups - basically, anything that will hold liquid - filled with our magical juice of the coffee gods!
Easy summer iced coffee *or* summertime teacher fuel
1/2 cup of your favorite ground coffee
3 cups water cold water (divided)
1/2 cup sugar/sugar substitute (I like my Splenda, but use whatever you like!)
1/2 cup half & half OR your favorite flavored coffee creamer, chilled
Whipped topping (optional)
1. Brew the coffee with 1 & 1/2 cups of the water
2. Combine the hot coffee with the sugar in a carafe or pitcher; stir until the sugar is completely dissolved
3. Stir in the remaining 1 & 1/2 cups of water and the chilled half and half / creamer; refrigerate until ready to serve
4. Pour chilled coffee mixture over ice into the glass or mug of your choice. Top with whipped topping if you like.
As I mentioned before, this probably serves 4 regular cups, but there is NO judgement on you if you drink more. Sometimes I do...because...COFFEE.
Pair your iced coffee with my apple for the teacher cake because...#Treatyourself
