DIY Iced Coffee Latte
Make your own Iced Coffe Latte:
(As a side note: I did pick up some Sugar Free Pumpkin Syrup to add to to mine. Iced Pumpkin Latte Baby--- I noticed there were some Sugar Free Pumpkin Creamer in the Target refrigerated section as well, I am sure that would work instead of half and half).
Make these Latte's your own.
How I make Mine:
I use a cold brew coffee and just keep the syrup in the fridge.
1/3 Cup Cold Brew Coffee -- it is really strong.
1 cup Milk, when I am out of Milk, I will be trying Almond Milk.
Generous Splash of Half and Half.
Generous Splash to taste of Torani's Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup.
Add ice, stir and enjoy.
1 - Starbucks Via of your choice. (This is the Instant Packet that you add water to.)
The Italian Roast is good.
5 Ounces of Cold water
3 Ounces of Milk, any kind -- Almond Milk Ok too.
I use a dash of Half and Half -- ok a generous creamy dash.
I also use a dash -- to taste -- of the Torani's Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup for a sweet flavoring.
Mix the coffe and the water together, then the milk, half and half, flavoring, and pour over ice and enjoy.
The above is the quicky way if you don't have any coffee syrup/extract.
The best part about making your own is it is to taste, and you control the calories.
You control the sugar. Starbucks, makes an Iced Coffee, but the sugar and calorie content is
a bit high.
You could also use Espresso Shots like Starbucks does. Or, if you made coffee this morning, pop in an air tight container, and save for later.
Part of the fun, is tweaking it to your taste. Oh, and the saving money part is great too. As is the saving calories.
