Hey, Boss Babes! Today’s recipe was inspired by the most important month-long celebration of the year…. National Coffee Month! We drink cold brew at the start of every morning as we post that day’s blog to social media, check our email, & plan out the day’s schedule. It’s awesome and you can buy it at your local grocery store in a variety of flavors and brands. We like Stok Coffee with almond milk & vanilla creamer. #winning However, there’s always a way to move up a level in life, and living in Florida where it’s hot as all get out pretty much all the time, the ice melts so quickly. So, we decided to try cold brew ice cubes! They’re easy to make, keep our coffee tasting like coffee instead of water, and it only calls for 3 ingredients: cold brew coffee, simple syrup, & the milk or creamer of your choice. Get your caffeine fix with this simple recipe & savor your day! OH. And did we mention the cubes are two-tone? ;)
This recipe will make 14 ice cubes, so depending on your favorite mug’s size, it’ll make approximately two cups of Ultimate Cold Brew. It works best if you make it the night before so it’s ready for the following morning.
1.5 cups of cold brew
2 tbsp simple syrup
2/3 cup almond milk
Step 1. Pour your one & a half cups of cold brew into a measuring cup and add 2 tablespoons of simple syrup. Stir until fully combined. Pour your cold brew mixture into an ice cube tray, but only fill each slot 2/3 of the way. Carefully place the filled tray in the freezer for two hours to solidify the cold brew.
Step 2. Remove the tray from the freezer. Pour your almond milk over the top of each partially frozen cold brew cube until you reach the top of the slot, but don’t let the milk run over into the other slots. Once you’re finished, place the cubes back in the freezer for two hours.
Step 3. Remove your finished cold brew ice cubes from the freezer. The best way to get them out of the tray is to hold each end of the tray and bend your wrists in opposite directions to loosen the cubes. Fill your mug or glass with cold brew ice cubes, pour almond milk up to the rim of the glass (or fill the glass half with more cold brew & half with creamer/milk), add a paper straw, & enjoy!
