Iced Coffee Concentrate

I just found the most amazing recipe for iced coffee!! This is the reason why I am sitting on my computer at midnight writing this blog post. I just drank an entire glass of this amazing iced coffee. Well, I had to try it right....anyway I got this recipe from Pioneer Woman Cooks and it is amazing. It takes a long time, but it's SO WORTH IT... First take a pound of ground coffee, the richer and darker the better, but any coffee will do. I used cheap price rite brand just because it's all I had in the house. Then you want to add 2 GALLONS of water to the coffee grounds, that's A LOT of water so be sure that you have a GINORMOUS bowl, pitcher or bucket to hold it all while the coffee steeps.

Then wait and wait and wait until the coffee steeps, at least 8 hours or overnight, after that strain it through a cheescloth into whatever you want to store it in and then refridgerate until frigid

Ok here comes the good part, grab a glass and FILL it with ice, as much as you can fit in there

Then fill the glass with coffee concentrate until about a half full. Then take 3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk, make sure it's not evaporated, it's not the same and will not work, and mix it into your coffee (YUM)

Then add half and half until it's as light as you want it, and sugar if you need it mix it all about

stick in a straw, or two, and enjoy!!!

NOW you don't have to spend all your money at this place.....

Or that place.......

Have a great, coffee filled summer!!

  1. Very cute! I posted my iced coffee recipe yesterday too...must be everyone is enjoying iced coffee on a budget. =) I'm too lazy to wait 8 hours, so I just made my coffee and refrigerated it. I also used flavored creamer instead of the sweetened milk....simply because that's what I have. =)

    Looks great!
