Happy February 1! Who is ready to start their New Years Resolutions today since January was basically a wash? Oh just me? Cool. Like most mothers, teachers, and students, my body is made up of about 70% coffee, 20% Diet Coke and 10% water. As much as I like fancy coffee from Starbucks, my husband doesn’t like me spending close to $50 a month on something I can drink at home. So if you’re looking for something to indulge in at home that doesn’t cost a ton, then I have the perfect (read easy) recipe for you!
I drink iced coffee all year long, even when it’s 20 degrees out. However, this recipe can be made using hot or iced coffee. It’s super easy and if you’re like me, you probably already have all the ingredients in your house. You’ve probably heard of Moose Munch and their delicious gourmet popcorn but you might not have known that they also sell delicious coffee. From whole beans to single pods, each cup has the rich and buttery Moose Munch flavor. For this recipe, I used my Vitamix to finely grind the coffee beans. [My house still smells amazing from the milk chocolate caramel coffee). Once the beans were smooth enough, I made a large pot of coffee in my Ninja on Rich Brew and then placed it in the fridge for a few hours. After the coffee was cooled, I poured one cup over ice and added 2 tablespoons Salted Caramel Syrup (I used Torani) and some non-fat milk to taste. Whipped cream is in our refrigerator at all times so I topped my glass with a heaping pile and drizzled with caramel sauce and a pinch of sea salt.
Your taste buds won’t even know what to do with themselves after a few sips of this coffee. The Milk Chocolate Caramel coffee mixed with the salted caramel syrup is to die for. If you’re looking for a fun twist on your morning coffee, then this recipe is for you. The best part is that you can enjoy a cafe style coffee at home! Do you have a favorite spin on iced coffee?
