1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons creme de cacao OR chocolate syrup

Super Easy Iced Coffee

If you’re short on time or just need a quick coffee fix, this super easy iced coffee might be your go-to drink this summer! Similar to an iced cappuccino, this yummy java has few ingredients and plenty of caffeine to perk you up. You will need a sealable jar or container of some kind for this drink. 


2 teaspoons of your favorite instant coffee

1 teaspoon sugar

3 tablespoons of warm water

6 ounces of cold milk

Directions: In a sealable jar you will combine the coffee, warm water, and sugar. Cover your jar and give it a good shake until it’s nice and foamy. Pour the coffee into a glass full of ice. Add in the milk. We recommend experimenting with the amount of milk you use to find the perfect balance.
