Iced Coffee Recipe

A while back I found a recipe for making iced coffee. The recipe is for a cold brewed coffee. I had never heard of such a thing! I had to try it right away because I  have always disliked how other coffee can have that burnt flavor. In fact I am VERY picky about what coffee I like. I have made my coffee cold brewed ever since but have changed the recipe along the way. I also found a good recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk that I use.

Cold Brewed Coffee
1/2 cup of your favorite course ground coffee bean (fine ground works too)
1 liter of water

1. Fill a pitcher with the water and then add the coffee beans. Stir until the beans are all wet. Let this set 12 or more hours. I usually just let mine sit over night one night.

2. Prepare a strainer by setting a coffee filter in it and then placing it on top of a large bowl. Pour some of your coffee mixture into the filter. Let it drain.  Repeat until all of the coffee mixture has been filtered. (This is how I do it but if you have a better way...go for it.)

*This mixture will stay good in your fridge for about a month.

Iced Coffee Recipe

1/2 cup Cold Brewed Coffee (above recipe)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

Mix the ingredients together add ice and ENJOY!

*When I make the Sweetened Condensed Milk I omit the butter. 
**You can use storebought Sweetened Condensed Milk but I much prefer the taste of the homemade. I also find that storebought is much more difficult to mix in.


  1. Yummy iced coffee, but i think crushed ice is much better for iced coffee.
