Saving Time and Money with Homemade Iced Coffee

Here is an easy homemade iced coffee recipe
Course Beverage


  • Coffee
  • Creamer of your Choosing
  • Sweetener of your Choosing
  • LOTS of Ice (Your cup should be completely full)


  • Brew the Coffee in which you will be using for your Iced Coffee. 
    (You can use cold-brewed coffee which isn't hard to do but must be made in advance, think of 8-12 hours in advance so the night before. I will be using hot coffee as I usually always forget to make cold brew well enough in advance to use it in the morning when I am searching for coffee).

  • Fill the mug, tumbler, glass, whatever item you will be using for your coffee to the brim with Ice. 
    (I like to use Ice from the gas station because it is smaller so I can fill more space in my tumbler with ice BUT regular ice from the refrigerator or an ice tray works fine too. Make sure the ice is solid and not partially already melted, or it will melt quickly when it comes time to pour in your coffee.)

  • Add your desired amount of creamer to the ice.
    (This needs to be done BEFORE you add the coffee. The coldness helps prevent as much of the ice melting. I like A LOT of cream in my coffee but you can always add more creamer after you have put the coffee in, so put an ample amount in and then if need be add more afterward.)

  • With this step you can pour your coffee into a regular mug and mix in your sugar or sweetener of your choice and then pour the coffee from the mug to the cup holding your ice/creamer OR you can go ahead and add your coffee to the mug, tumbler, or cup of your choosing and use a liquid sweetener such as agave or this awesome sweetener I have found called Trala which is an organic coffee sweetener.

  • Once you have added the coffee to the container holding your ice, stir stir stir! Once you have stirred and mixed adequately, ENJOY! 
    As you can see in the image, even though I used hot coffee, I still have plenty of ice left behind.
