To My Little Coffee Addicts

Standard

Me included on that title!!

So a few weekends ago, the girls and I were talking coffee. We discussed how expensive our favorite drinks can be and worst yet how we suffer through camping and boating trips with gross gas station crap or nothing at all! And then I started thinking and doing a little research and I think I’ve created a versatile and yet cheap back up plan!!

Honey, I'm Home!

Nutella Ice Coffee Baby!!

So simple and inexpensive you are going to what to kick your own butt!! The one thing this takes to make is a little planning. But it isn’t like you don’t know if you are going to have that coffee in the morning or not so get over it!

For my coffee drinkers, who like to drink coffee but really don’t like the flavor of it.

You will need:

1/4 cup ground coffee

1 cup water

milk, soy milk, almond milk, whatever you like

Nutella

For people who like a stronger coffee flavor, just double the coffee/water above.

Part One:

So the night before you need to throw your coffee and water together in a container. I used an old cleaned glass jar. Refrigerate coffee/water in jar over night. From what I gather, cold brewing your coffee keeps it from tasting bitter.

Part Two:

The next morning, double your water in the jar (s0 if you added 1 cup the night before, add another cup). Take a coffee filter and position it over a separate glass. Strain your jar of coffee/water mixture through the filter into the new glass. You may need to run your coffee/water mix through a filter twice before pouring it into your “coffee cup.” Once you are satisfied that your coffee is ground free, top you coffee with milk. Obviously, my people who doubled their coffee/water above for a stronger taste will be adding less milk. Next spoon some Nutella into a microwave safe container and melt for about 15-30 seconds. Using a spoon, mix your coffee quickly as you pour in Nutella. Add ice. Fall in love!

But what if you are on a boat and don’t have access to a microwave? You could use flavored milk, flavored coffee or sweeten with sugar.  You would want to double or triple your recipe and have it strained before you take it with you, that way you can just pour what you want each day and you don’t have to mess with the part one stuff!

Either way you do it! Please let me know how it works for you!!
