DIY Chef: Iced Coffee

One of my favorite summer time indulgences is iced coffee. It's so easy to make and is a refreshing pick-me-up on hot days. Here is how I do it:

instant coffee (I like Starbucks Via individual packets)
1 Tbsp cocoa powder (gives your iced coffee a mocha flavor)
2 Tbsp non-dairy creamer (I use Coffee Mate lactose/gluten free non-dairy powder)
1 Tbsp honey (optional)
ground cinnamon
tall drinking cup
coffee cup 

Step 1:  In a coffee cup, combine instant coffee packet (or follow directions on instant coffee label for 1 cup of coffee), dash of ground cinnamon, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 2 Tbsp non-dairy creamer powder (you can substitute liquid non-dairy creamer), 1 Tbsp honey (for sweetness).  Add hot water to cup and stir ingredients.

Step 2: Allow brewed coffee to cool for 10 minutes. Pour cooled coffee into a tall drinking cup filled with ice. Stir and enjoy!

Happy Summer,
