Iced coffee…it’s a glorious drink! I didn’t discover coffee until AFTER I gave birth to three of my four daughters. I don’t know what rock I was living under but I never knew coffee could be delicious. I’ve found out that cold coffee, especially ice cold coffee is even more delicious than I could have imagined!
I’m not a huge fan of hot coffee though so most of the coffee I drink is either iced or room temp. Call me weird, that’s ok, but I like what I like.
After being so tired of the three older daughters always using up the regular coffee creamer in their milk I decided to just stop buying it and try my taste buds with half and half. I have to say I am SOOOOO glad I did! It is even better than any flavored creamer I’ve bought! Granted I add in a few things but even so it’s tasty!

The recipe is so easy to make too. You can buy everything from Aldi for a fraction of what it would cost you at the big name grocery store. Here’s what you’ll need
brewed coffee at room temp
half and half
Everyone is different when it comes to taste but I like to have a ratio of coffee:half and half 3:5….yes maybe a little heavy on the half and half but what can I say I’m living it up ;)! First, pour your coffee into your glass.
Then add in your sugar. I add 1.5 teaspoons to mine and it’s almost too sweet for me.
Don’t forget your vanilla. I usually eye ball this to be just a tiny bit but if you’re nervous you’ll pour too much use a measuring spoon. I don’t recommend putting in more than 1/2 teaspoon.
Then add in your half and half
Give it a good stir.
Add in some ice. I usually add a lot.
Then you’re done!
Such a simple and easy go to iced coffee recipe. No frills just the basics but it’s soooo good! I like to drink mine from my stainless steel straw. If you’ve never tried these you must! This is the only way I can get enough water every single day to stay hydrated.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
