Iced Coffee Additions

Today, we're going to step up your iced coffee game.

I'm an iced coffee addict in the summer and often have some in the afternoons as a quick pick-me-up between shifts at work, studying, or just working away at home. While there is certainly nothing wrong with some straight up iced coffee with a splash of heavy cream, sometimes, you just want something a bit more. Here are some of my favorite ways to amp up your cold caffeine:

Coffee ice cubes: Just pour some leftover coffee into your ice cube trays, freeze, and voila - your coffee is kept cold without getting diluted. Because really, we need all the caffeine around here.

Coconut milk ice cubes: These are the perfect things for that random half a can of leftover coconut milk. Simply make sure the coconut milk is well-mixed and pour into ice cube trays and freeze. I will add some vanilla extract and/or cinnamon to mine for even more flavor. You can use them as straight up ice cubes OR use them to make a delicious blended coffee treat.

Blend it up: Add some coffee ice cubes, coconut milk ice cubes, and a little bit of cold coffee concentrate (or cold brewed coffee) and blend for an icy and cold caffeine fix.

Protein powder: I often add some of my favorite custom mix Chocolate PB cup flavor protein powder (you can get 5% off with code "GGF") before blended for a blended protein mocha snack. You could also add cocoa powder for more chocolatey flavor.

And now, I really need some coffee. I'll try not to spill it everywhere this time.
