{Clean Eating Iced Coffee}

I LOVE iced coffee in the summer!! I love coffee year around but in the summertime I like to have one hot cup of coffee and one iced cup of coffee a day! Iced coffees at Starbucks are SO delicious but not so great for me! My all time favorite, Iced Caramel Macchiato, has 230 calories, 6 grams of fat and 31 grams of sugar!! Although....it may be nice for a treat every now and then....definitely not something you want to drink often!! I make my own at home and they are SO much healthier but still delicious! Let me show you how I make mine!!




Clean Eating Iced Coffee

  • 1 cup strong coffee (cooled)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 5-10 drops of Vanilla Creme Stevia Drops
  • Ice
  • 1/2 tbsp. brown rice syrup (optional)
Brew 1 cup of strong coffee and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to cool. Fill a large cup with ice. Pour milk and coffee over ice. Add in stevia drops to taste. Drizzle with brown rice syrup if desired.

**If you don't have vanilla creme stevia drops....use regular stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract.

Nutrition facts: 42 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 4 grams of sugar! Big difference...huh??

ENJOY!!

  1. I will confess, too - I am a Starbucks addict. I can't wait to try this! We purchased a Toddy system that cold brews coffee and LOVE it! I think the cold brewing makes it less bitter, I only need to add milk and ice and my husband just adds water and ice.
