Combine the instant coffee, milk, vanilla, sugar, ice, and chocolate in a blender and blend until smooth.

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.

Source: Mother turned me on to iced coffee; this variation means no melting ice cubes and on hand all day.

Place all ingredients in blender. Cover and blend on high speed until ice is crushed.
Pour into glasses and enjoy.
This is a real nice pick me up when I need a little more caffeine.
Add enough ice cubes to 1/3 cup water to measure 3/4 cup. Add to blender with 1 Tbsp. French vanilla coffee. Cover and blend until slushy. Pour into glass with 1 Tbsp. Cool Whip.
Makes a nice, frothy pick-me-up for those hot summer days and you're not getting the fat content like you would from the ice cream in a regular float. Plus, if you use diet cola, then you've got a low-calorie treat as well as non-fat!

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 am looking for a recipe for really tasty iced coffee. I need to drink the caffeine in the morning. I love iced tea but it doesn't give me enough of a jump start. It is to hot to drink hot coffee. I have made a pot of it and chilled it and put powdered milk in and sugar, but is there anything else I can do? I also had some whipped cream which was very tasty but has too much fat.

I do still always drink my hot coffee in the morning but must admit in the hotter weather I probably drink less.
Also, you could take the leftover coffee and put straight away in the frig so that it is nice and chilled for later for your iced coffee. (07/12/2006)
I make a pot of coffee at night, place it in the fridge. In the morning, I add 1/4 cup of half & half to the pitcher. Add ice cubes to the glass and pour the coffee in.
Vanilla flavored soy milk added to cold coffee is delicious and need no sugar. (07/12/2006)

Combine coffee and sugar and chill. Add milk and pectin, shake together thoroughly and chill again. To serve, zap in a blender for 30 to 45 seconds, or shake mixture in ice, strain and serve. For vanilla add a capful of vanilla extract; for mocha, add a pinch of cocoa powder.
Make double-strength coffee by brewing with twice the coffee required by your coffee maker approximately 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per each cup of coffee. Chill before using. Like Starbuck's Frozen Frappuccino (2 large servings)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses, and serve with a straw.
For caramel, add 3 tablespoons of caramel topping; for mocha add 3 tablespoons of Hershey's syrup. If desired, top with whipped cream and drizzle additional sauce over top of cream. (07/12/2006)
I just make coffee and chill it in the fridge (or let it sit in the windowsill overnight), pour it into a tall glass and add milk (2% for creamier texture) and two or three teaspoons of sugar. If you have a Nalgene bottle or some such leak proof container, (they make wonderful coffee-bottles) you can just mix it all in the bottle and shake it up, otherwise just take an iced-tea spoon and stir until all the sugar dissolves. VERY good. PMZ
PS--If you are not counting calories, you can add a tablespoon of whipped cream to the top. (07/12/2006)
The best I've tasted, but high in calories. LH (11/22/2006)
An easier way to make 'mock' espresso is with an AeroPress coffee maker. It makes great shots of STRONG coffee that you can water down Americano style. Real easy to use and cleanup! (08/05/2007)
Stir instant coffee into cold water in a tall glass, add sugar and milk. Stir until well blended add ice cubes. Top with cool whip just before serving.

Put all ingredients in the blender and mix until all the ice is crushed. Serve immediately.
Decaf instant is great for an evening drink. You can add some chocolate syrup (1Tbsp.) or cocoa to make it mocha, or 1/2/ tsp. vanilla. I believe I got this from Kraftfoods.com a couple years ago. Works great, have made it many, many times. Tastes just like Tim Horton's Ice Cappuccino. (03/30/2009)
