Coffee Ice Cubes

Hello, all!

Are you having a jumpin’, jivin’ weekend thus far?  Anything fun happening?  I’m making my own homemade ice cream.  Ive been on the kick lately, and I’m sharing the recipe soon.

Should I say that again?

HOMEMADE.

ICE CREAM.

Is there anything better?

Now you could be saying why exactly am I making homemade ice cream for the (I’ll block the amount of times to avoid embarrassment) in the last couple weeks?  And for that matter, why am I bringing you coffee ice cubes today?

Well, it’s going to be in the upper 50s/lower 60s this weekend in Minnesota, so break out the sunglasses, ya’ll.  🙂  That’s like telling someone in any other area of the country that it’s going to be 85.  😉

So I have to admit that I can be pretty persnickety when it comes to certain aspects of food.  But just sometimes.  For instance, cranberry sauce cannot run into my mashed potatoes during Thanksgiving.  No.  Nope.  It gives me chills just thinking about it.  😛

Next, I hate when you go to a restaurant and whatever food you get comes standard with a scoop of sour cream on top.  It’s not their fault.  It’s me.  All I have to do is say, “No sour cream.”  But I forget.  EVERY SINGLE TIME.  MY WHOLE LIFE.  And I just don’t dig sour cream.

And lastly, I just can’t abide a watered-down cold beverage.  I love having a big ol’ glass of lemonade (or even better, limeade!) during the summer.  But it’s kind of this unspoken thing where you know it’s only going to taste like lemonade halfway through drinking it.  Then it’s just going to taste like lemon water.  Then just water.

Bummer!  So let’s not let our delicious drinks lose their pep and joyousness.

I’m a huge fan of coffee, and when the weather starts warming up I really like to have iced coffee.  But when you’re outside on a warm day with your cold-brew coffee, it never seems to take long for it to warm up to the weird lukewarm coffee zone.  So let’s stay out of that zone with a non-recipe.

Basically you just take your favorite kind of coffee.  I used brownie batter flavored coffee because ME.  Then I let it cool down completely, poured it into ice trays, and froze it.  It’s just that easy.

Actually, getting the ice cube trays from the cupboard to the freezer wasn’t easy at all.  How come when you want to be steady of hand that’s the exact time when you are least graceful?  Every. Single. Time.  Haha.  🙂

    I don’t like coffee (I know, what is the matter with me??) but I’m thinking this will work for my beloved tea too! 🙂
