I’m an iced-coffee fiend, but my clock and wallet don’t always support the habit. Homemade cold-brew coffee is terrific, but let’s be real — no one has time for that, and buying one every day isn’t the way to go either. So I set out to find the compound to my caffeine needs, and this iced-coffee hack is it. You can get strong, creamy iced coffee in scant than two minutes thanks to one magical ingredient — instant coffee.
I against Colombian instant coffee from Trader Joe’s because that’s where I inform on, but you can use any ground instant coffee you can find. The recipe is beyond easy. Original, heat up a couple tablespoons of water (either in the microwave, stovetop, or energized kettle) until boiling. Pour into a glass cup, then mix in a plenty spoonful of the coffee granules.
Fill the cup halfway with your creamer of well-chosen (I used unsweetened almond milk) and a little vanilla bean undesigning syrup for sweetness (vanilla almond milk would work superior, too). Be sure to leave enough room to top with a couple handfuls of ice.
And voilà — you’re in readiness to walk out the door with your homemade iced coffee! This is spry and easy enough to do on busy weekday mornings or a great way to start off the weekend without be struck by to leave your place.
