It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of iced coffee. Caffeine is basically what causes me to function on a daily basis, especially when I’ve got a lot going on. And while I’ll always remain partial to my standard coffee order (ice, vanilla, splash of skim milk), I do find it fun to mix it up every once and a while, which is why I’m bringing you this easy recipe for an iced coffee slushie.
What I absolutely love about this recipe is that it can be a refreshing to whatever caffeinated beverage you drink in the morning. The recipe is very versatile, so it’s a fantastic way to experiment with different flavors. Not to mention it’s also a super quick and simple process.
What You’ll Need:
- Coffee syrup (optional)
- ice cube tray
- Fill an ice cube tray with a cup of black coffee. If you don’t have an ice cube tray available to you, which I didn’t at the time, you can use pretty much any container. I used a circular Tupperware for this recipe and it worked out perfectly fine. However, I think it’s easiest with an ice cube tray.
- Allow coffee to sit in freezer until frozen solid. I recommend doing this overnight, but mine was frozen solid after a couple of hours.
- Once your coffee is frozen, remove it from the freezer and dump the cubes into a blender. If you used a Tupperware container, it may be need to sit for a few minutes to loosen up around the edges before it becomes transferable.
- This is the fun part! Add in your choice of milk, cream, or coffee syrup. I decided to put in about a tablespoon of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla syrup, but there are plenty of different options you can choose from. Chocolate syrup, for example, is a fun and sweet alternative.
- Blend your drink thoroughly and pour into a cup for drinking. If you’re having this as more of a dessert, you can place a dollop of whipped cream on top for a little touch of sweetness. The options for these last two steps are virtually limitless.
Thank you so much for reading. I haven’t done any recipe posts in a while, so let me know if this is something you’d like to see more often.
