What Coffee Beans to Use?

If you brew coffee at home, do not discard any leftovers. Refrigerate for up to 2 days and make iced coffee recipe. Of course, quality of coffee beans matters and better the coffee grounds, the 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.

  1. This recipe seems so simple to be so amazing, but it is literally amazing! So easy to make at home and so delicious!

    Would definitely recommend trying it! I’m going to make it everyday now haha

  2. I have been searching the internet for good healthy iced coffee recipes. Yours is the first that I actually like. It was amazing and I look forward to making it every morning.

        1. 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.

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 🙂
