I refuse to pay for ice coffees that are filled with ice and you are only getting 1/4 of coffee in your cup. Call me "frugal". Yes, I am frugal! :)

I make a pot of coffee in the morning. I drink 1 hot cup, then fill my ice cube tray with the rest of my coffee. Then I put on a little more coffee for later and put it away in the fridge. When I want a large flavored coffee, I simply take out my cold coffee pour it in my tall iced coffee cup, add some vanilla or almond (whatever extract or spice like cinnamon), add your sugar or sweetener, stir it very well. Then I add my coffee cubes. And my iced coffee stays like coffee all afternoon. It never gets that watered down taste half way through!

Frugal Iced CoffeeMake a half pot of coffee, allow it to cool a bit. Then pour it in a quart jar and add a tsp. of sweetener (or to your taste). I use Agave syrup, which is low-Glycemic and you use less than you would sugar, you can always add more later. Shake well to dissolve sweetener and put in fridge until cool.

When ready to drink, pour into glass making it 1/2 to 2/3 full (depending on how strong you like it, (I'm a 2/3 full person) and fill the rest with milk and then ice if needed. I leave mine in the fridge until the next day so I don't always need ice.

I make extra coffee every day or so and pour the extra (after my morning hot coffee) into the quart jar with a little sweetener. I am a coffee lover and when I'm out and about, I love to stop for an Iced Coffee but the prices always make me cringe. I can't really break down the price for you but I guarantee it's very little compared to store bought.

If you are a person who would normally pour that coffee down the drain after you've had your fill, think about just putting it in the fridge. It will be yummy latter when you're wishing you had an Iced Coffee. For that matter, you could pop it in the microwave too.

BTW, this is in a recycled Spaghetti sauce jar, no special materials needed.

Much cheaper than the ones you get at the drive through, and easy to make in the blender.

Homemade Coffee Frappè

I only drink one cup in the morning because I love my iced coffees. I will not stop and pay $3.50 for a medium iced coffee. I pour it into a pitcher, add my sweetner and what ever spice I feel like having.

I had never heard of this unusual take on punch, and although I don't like coffee, this is a refreshing change from the usual icky sweet punches that are usually served. It's simple and delicious.

Brew your favorite brand of coffee stronger than you normally would for hot coffee. If you want sugar in your iced coffee, add it while it is still hot - this will allow the sugar to dissolve. Pour the hot (sugared) coffee into a pitcher and store in the refrigerator. To serve, pour a glass of the chilled coffee over ice and add creamer or milk if desired. This will last several days in the refrigerator. When I purchase an occasional iced coffee, I save the plastic cup with lid to reuse for my own iced coffee-to-go at home.

I fill a cup halfway with water and 2 Tbsp. instant coffee and pop that in the microwave for 40 seconds. Then I add maybe 2 to 3 spoonfuls of chocolate ice cream, stir, then add milk to fill cup and enjoy!

Florida has lots of hot days and I'm a coffee lover, so I combine the two. Leftover coffee goes into the refrigerator for the next day, at which time I add Hazelnut CoffeeMate, return it to the fridge, and sip on it throughout the day.

When I have left over coffee, I add one tablespoon of hot chocolate to one cup of coffee then I keep it in the refrigerator until I am ready to drink it. It is much cheaper than Starbucks.

Anyone got a good recipe for Iced Coffee? I love the Rockstar roasted, but it's kind of expensive.

I have tried many, many things and ways to come up with a good tasting cold coffee. The one I think I like the most is: using a single serving envelope of "hot chocolate mix" you can choose your favorite flavor.

I don't like my coffee too sweet so I use two envelopes per coffee pot (8 cups) and a bit of milk or half and half and store the remaining in the fridge for later. hope this helps.

I don't drink a whole lot of coffee at one time, so when I am done with the pot I have made, I pour the remainder in an old, cleaned out flavored creamer container.

Cold coffee and chocolate milk can make a delightful quick treat. Top with a pile of whipped cream, shaved chocolate and a cherry.

In a large glass (30 oz. if possible), put in about crushed ice and coffee. Fill the remainder of the cup with your favorite cola and stir well. You need the tall glass because it will really foam up!
