Well, the coffee obsession continues. Much like Lorelai on Gilmore Girls I’m fairly certain that at some point I’m going to start requesting my favorite caffeinated beverage in IV form. 😉
Now, I love a good blended iced coffee as much as the next person. Unfortunately they don’t tend to be the healthiest thing in the world. And although I am the kind of person that wishes I could eat chocolate cake for breakfast, I have a sneaking suspicion that if I tried to do something like that my metabolism would chuckle, wave a magic wand over me, and instantly add five pounds to my waist. 😉
A lot of blended coffee drinks have about as much sugar as three cans of pop. And the calories of some are probably about the amount you should have in a day.
So what’s a person to do when you want a blended, icy coffee drink, but don’t want a sugar bomb? You make it yourself. And it’s so easy! Woohoo! 🙂
All this recipe requires are some of the coffee ice cubes I brought you a few posts ago, and your favorite milk or milk alternative. Blend it up in your high-powered blender of choice and voila! And if you want to add a touch of sugar, go ahead!
Another great part of this recipe is that you can customize the thickness. If you want a fake-out ice cream with WAY less fat, just add less milk and your concoction will be super thick. Perfect for a spoon. Or add more milk for a smoothie-like consistency.
Coffee for everyone, for all hours, forever! 😀
- 8 coffee ice cubes
- 1 cup milk or milk alternative (More or less, depending on thickness preference)
- Add both ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
