This instant iced coffee recipe is a game changer! I have made this every day for years and I never tire of it. If you love to drink iced coffee, this will change your life! Learn how to make iced coffee in less than a minute!
When I first started my blog, the very first recipe that I shared was this iced coffee recipe.
I had only tried it for the first time a few months ago, and it was safe to say that I was head over heels in love.
This recipe quite literally changed my life.
I have drank this instant coffee multiple times a day for four years now and never get sick of it.
I’ll admit, before I tried this iced coffee recipe, I actually was not a regular coffee drinker.
I didn’t like hot coffee, didn’t want to pay for coffee at Starbucks, and had never found a way to make delicious cold coffee at home.
I’m convinced that 99% of people don’t know about this iced coffee hack that has changed my life.
I honestly prefer making this coffee to buying coffee anywhere out, as I can customize it to be as strong as I want and use healthier creamer options that don’t leave me feeling bad.
My personal favorites are almond and soy milk and almond milk creamers.
I am sitting here enjoying my first homemade iced coffee, thank you!! It’s as good as anything from Starbucks and so easy!! I thought it would take hot water and lots of ice, but nope!! Yay!!!! This is a game changer, thanks so much!!! – Lana
You can find them just about anywhere these days: walmart, target, kroger, etc.
They are sweet enough and taste yummy, but aren’t packed full of sugar and artificial flavor.
You’ll be surprised how simple this little trick is, but once I discovered it I’ve been making iced coffee a LOT more frequently because of how easy it is!
Thank you for this life changer! I have tried to make good iced coffee for years and it has always been hit or miss. Cold brew, hot brew over ice, etc. Stumbled across your recipe…had doubts…tried it anyway. Absolutely delicious! No more prepping in advance. Instant perfection. – Kathy
Make instant coffee without hot water
You know how you’ve always been told that instant coffee had to be made hot?
Well it also makes iced coffee! Just mix cold water with instant coffee grounds, add some creamer, and stir.
It can take a minute or two for the coffee to dissolve, but it does!
I usually stir mine up, go do something else for a minute or so, then come back and stir a little more and it is ready!
Add ice and you have an iced coffee recipe that’s not only cheap and convenient, but much less sugar and junk too!
