If you brew coffee at home, do not dump any leftovers. Refrigerate for up to 2 days and make iced coffee. Of course, flavour of coffee matters, and better the coffee grounds, tastier the end result. We usually buy organic coffee beans and grind them once a week.

I can’t recommend you one particular brand  because there are just so many and selection varies by location. So, just use the coffee you normally drink.

4 ways to customize your healthy iced coffee:

1. Use any milk: dairy, almond, coconut, rice, soy or hemp milk. My latest obsession is Califia Farms, so tasty!

2. Add cinnamon, nutmeg or more (skip) vanilla extract.

3. Add maple syrup to taste if you are craving a tad of sweetness.

4. Change the ratio of coffee : milk. 50:50, 30:70 or whatever you want.

Enjoy this healthy iced coffee, and next hot summer day try my healthy frappuccino recipe or lime iced tea. You will love both of them!

    Your coffee shots look like they could be hanging inside of a Starbucks:)
    I love iced coffee! All year around.:) I usually use TJ’s almond milk too, but I never thought to add vanilla extract. Will try it tomorrow. 🙂

    I just started doing this. I use Caramel Macciato flavored coffee from Starbucks and Vanilla Almond Milk. It is so good on those sticky humid Southern mornings.

      Glad you like it, Suzanne! It’s so simple, cheap and tasty. You can vary this iced coffee as much as you like. Next time I will try it with whipped coconut cream on top. Stay cool.:)

    I looooove iced coffee! It’s actually the only way I’ll drink it. I came up with my own iced mocha recipe (which is posted on my blog) but I always feel guilty if I have it too often because I know it isn’t very healthy. I never even thought to use almond milk before. I think I’ll try your recipe next time and use a little chocolate syrup as the sweetener. Then it’ll be a bit healthier! I can’t wait to try it! 🙂

    So, I’m more of a hot coffee drinker…and I KNOW you also love your coffee. Do you make your own coffee creamer or what do you put in your hot coffee?

      You might be shocked right now but I quit coffee a month ago! LOL. Cold turkey. I LOVED my coffee, you are right. But funny I feel so much better now and it was the best decision next to quitting smoking. Anyways, before this nonsense happened, I was adding a few tbsp of unsweetened almond milk.:)

      Awesome! Don’t be sad, guys. Starbucks is full of cr@p and GMO ingredients. I buy only Americano with organic soy milk as a treat when I’m out.

          I like medium to medium dark roast coffee, preferably organic. My favourites are Ethical Bean, Kicking Horse, Seattle’s Best or when I’m out Starbucks Blonde or Pike Place Roast.

    Thank you, will surely try these since most coffee drinks are quite high in sugar/calories. : )
