Mix it up! Simple Summer Iced Coffee Drink Recipes

Amp up your Iced Coffee this summer… So by now, you all know that I am a full-fledged coffee junkie. Yep,it’s true. Without it, I’m just a floppy jellyfish, slithering out to the kitchen to get my first dose of caffeinated deliciousness. But with coffee, I’m able to transform from a mindless jellyfish into a total Super Mom….  “Faster than a speeding toddler, more powerful than those tough-to-reach dust bunnies, able to leap tall piles of laundry in a single bound….” Yep, coffee is what I’m all about. And, while I drink and love coffee in any form, from a basic home-brewed cup o’ joe, to a beautifully blended espresso drink at a coffee house – my favorite way to drink it is a homemade iced coffee drink. So I’m going to share a few of my favorite mixes with you ladies today!

 “A MORNING WITHOUT COFFEE IS LIKE…. SLEEP.” – AUTHOR UNKNOWN

There are a lot of tutorials out there on how to make cold-press iced coffee at home – but they are kind of complicated, and I didn’t always get perfect results each time. Plus – how I am supposed to follow so many steps in the morning BEFORE I’ve had any coffee, right? A muuuuuch easier solution for busy moms is to pick up a carton or two {or three…} of the new Iced Coffee by International Delight. Seriously – I have never been a fan of any type of pre-made iced coffees before, but this stuff is perfection in a carton. No lie. And while I could chug buckets of it straight any day, it’s also fun to Mix It Up – and make some fun flavor combos using International Delight’s line of creamers, plus a few other simple ingredients. My VERY favorite is my Candy Bar & Cookies Iced Coffee – the recipe is coming, just wait…

“BEHIND EVERY SUCCESSFUL WOMAN IS A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF COFFEE.” – STEPHANIE PIRO

First step – Head to your local grocery store to pick up a carton of this awesome iced coffee from International Delight. There are three flavors to choose from, Mocha, Original, and Vanilla. I love ’em all – and any of them will work just great in these recipes. So – I use Original. If you want it a little sweeter go with Vanilla, if you want it a little more chocolaty, then grab the Mocha. You’ll find these in the dairy section of the store – they’re usually in the cases next to the milk and coffee creamers. But – I LOVED this giant bay of iced coffee at Walmart last time I shopped – so many glorious cartons of coffee…. total #IcedDelight.

Next step is to grab some creamer… As you can see, there are a TON of awesome flavors of International Delight creamers to choose from. For the Candy Bar and Cookies recipe, I used the Peppermint Patty flavor – but there are a bunch of other super yummy candy bar flavored creamers that would work great too – Like Heath Bar or Almond Joy. So grab a few – and experiment with some mix’en and match’en.

“Coffee is the best thing to douse the sunrise with.” – Terri Guillemets

Like I said earlier – Don’t be afraid to Mix it Up, and amp up your summer with some cool iced coffee creations. With so many awesome flavors of iced coffee and new creamers from International Delight, it’s super easy to mix up great recipes to enjoy in those rare moments you can sneak away for a little “me time” on the patio- and they’re perfect for summer entertaining. Here are a few other ideas to help inspire your own iced coffee creativity:

  • Iced Coffee Milkshakes: Crushed Ice, Iced Coffee, Creamer, and 1/3 package {small size box} of instant pudding mix, blended up. Soooo good! Use any flavor combos: I like to use Original Flavor Iced Coffee, white chocolate pudding mix, and Caramel Macchiato creamer.
  • Cinammon Roll in a Glass: Vanilla iced coffee, Southern Butter Pecan creamer, and a dash of cinnamon mixed up over ice.
  • Coffee Ice Cream Soda: This rocks – Fill glasses 3/4 full with iced coffee. Pour your choice of creamer in – just a dash. Drop a spoonful of ice cream to your glass. Pour club soda over to fill and fizz. Then top with whip cream and a cherry.

See what I mean? Once you get into it, there are SO many combos you can come up with! If you experiment with these flavors, leave me a comment letting me know what recipes YOU come up with! I’ll share some favorites on my Facebook page – so let me know in the comment if it’s ok to use your name, and leave a blog link if you have one :)
