Iced Coffee Cubes

I love coffee. Deep, dark, rich coffee topped with lots of cream...YUM! 

Boy that sounds good right now.....Unfortunately since I developed some heart issues a few years ago I've had to say goodbye to coffee with the exception of an occasional decaf. Lucky for me there are quite a few coffee houses that make really good decafs so I no longer have to suffer in silence. Even luckier is that I stumbled upon a recipe for iced coffee cubes from Kiran Tarun's blog which I slightly adapted and posted after the picture below. What a great way to get a little coffee, caffeinated or not, during those hot summer months. 

Here is my adapted recipe for Kiran's iced coffee cubes:

  • A pot of your favorite freshly brewed coffee (stronger coffee will not taste as diluted once combined with the milk or cream) cooled to room temperature. 
  • 1 tsp of your favorite flavoring such as organic pure vanilla extract or Kahlua. If you are making these for a dinner party you may want to add 1 tbsp or more of the Kahlua. Taste test the coffee before freezing. 
  • I don't like to add any sweetener but if you like your coffee sweet, add your favorite sweetener. 
  • Organic milk/cream or better yet, whipped cream. 

  • Add flavorings and sweetener to the cooled, freshly brewed pot of coffee. Stir to combine. 
  • Pour coffee into ice tray and freeze overnight. 
  • Add some iced coffee cubes to your favorite glasses and top with the organic milk, cream or whipped cream. 
  • Sit back and enjoy!
