I LOVE coffee. In every way. I like it black, or with cream, I like it hot and I like it cold. I’ll pretty much take it anyway it comes. I generally drink it hot when I’m home, but with Spring here and Summer fast approaching, I was looking for some delicious iced coffee recipes to make at home. It makes a yummy and refreshing drink, and I don’t end up reheating it 4 times. Plus it really helps keep my visits to the local Starbucks to a minimum when I’m craving a coffee treat.
1. Iced Vanilla Bean Latte
This vanilla bean latte recipe calls for coconut milk but could easily be exchange for any milk of your choice. Vanilla lattes are my usual go to iced drink at Starbucks, but I find myself finishing a Tall in less than 5 minutes and am less than satisfied considering how much the charge. Make yourself one by following this simple recipe and indulge as often as you like for a fraction of the cost.
2. Cinnamon Dolce Iced Coffee
I love to add all kinds of flavored syrups to my coffee, so I was thrilled when I found this recipe for home made cinnamon dolce simple syrup. It’s so easy to make you will be dreaming up what other flavors to try next.

3. Caramel Iced Coffee Frappe
When you cannot decide if you want dessert or coffee, then this homemade caramel frappe is for you. I know there is nothing I love more on a hot day than a ice cold Starbucks frappuccino, but they are not easy on the pocket book after a while, and its nice not having to leave the house just for a coffee fix. Give this one a go, you will not be disappointed.

4.Horchata Iced Coffee
If you are a fan of Horchata then you will love this iced coffee. You CAN make a your own horchata, but if it is sold locally like it is here in California, I just keep a stash in fridge ready to make this delicious iced coffee. All you need is some brewed coffee and horchata, then mix to your desired taste. Super easy and SO good!

5. Vietnamese Iced Coffee
This delicious strong and sweet coffee is one of my most favorites. First you need a simple cold brew which you can make by brewing some coarsely ground coffee beans in water over night. Just make sure you strain your brew through cheese cloth or a coffee filter before you make your iced drink. Then to make this vietnamese coffee all you need is ice cubes and some sweetened condensed milk. Stir and serve, or should I say indulge.

6. Blended Iced Cappuccino
I have never been to Canada, but I have heard of Tim Hortons coffee. It would definitely be one of my first stops if I ever have the chance to visit. When I saw this blended iced cappuccino I knew I had to try it. Sweet, frothy and delicious – you gotta make one.
