Let Me Help You With That Iced Coffee

That’s my poison.

Drive up. Straight out the window, I drop my six dollar tithe to St. Arbucks.

Yeah…you know what I’m talking about. You know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.

It’s the over-priced-can’t-do-without-gimme-gimme-gimme coffee drinks that we’re all so familiar with. The ones we wish someone would deliver to us because we don’t feel like getting dressed¬† or leaving the house or dealing with cranky kids every morning. Our cherished Starbucks. Oh, how we love thee. *insert angels singing*

So, it’s understood that we all love Starbucks, including myself. Fortunately for me, I don’t’ have one nearby. Therefore, I usually only get it as a “treat” when I’m on the road to somewhere. That’s not to say that I don’t buy whole bean Starbucks coffee to use at home. Though, for those of you who are frequenters, have you ever stopped to consider how often you frequent? Three times a week? 5 times a week? $30 a week? $120 a month? *yikes* Let’s say you average three drinks a week at six dollars per drink. That’s NINE HUNDRED THIRTY SIX dollars per year…on coffee drinks.

What else could you do with that money? Take a vacation? Invest? Pay an extra house payment? Buy organic food? Oh…wait…organic food is too expensive.


Anyway…I’m about to save you a few bucks. Here’s how to make delicious iced coffee without getting dressed, leaving the house or dealing with bratty kids. Mix a 12 cup pot of hot brewed coffee with one can of sweetened condensed milk*. Let it sit on the counter until it cools off a bit. Refrigerate overnight and serve over ice (the viscosity changes overnight so don’t skip the refrigeration part.)¬† Voila. I’m not even kidding. It’s amazing. You can even top it with whipped cream and caramel if that’s what you like. For about 2 quarts of iced coffee, it’ll probably cost you around $1.50.

It’s better than the venti quad low-fat iced vanilla latte.

Yes. There. I said it.

*Sweetened condensed milk contains only milk and sugar. I’m on the hunt for an organic brand to avoid the GMO sugar.

    Fit Clubs are events where people meet in-person to work out together to Beachbody fitness programs.

    I personally prefer exercise bands, not only because of
    the more affordable pricetag, but simply because
    they are easily transportable, convenient and much more flexible than a set of dumbbells.
    Be familiar with the causes of tinnitus in adults will be helpful
    for treating this problem.
