coffee talk…..

so anyone who knows me will know that i love The Pioneer Woman and her cookbooks/website

she recently posted and also added to her newest cookbook how to make the best ice coffee so what did i do? what do i always do? i made it vegan…

i brewed really strong (decaf) coffee and she cold brews it but i didn’t want to wait 12 hours so i just brewed it hot and placed it in the freezer to cool- then i keep it in the fridge in a mason jar.


the second step is the condensed milk… i take almond milk – about a cup and put it in a sauce pan with about 1/4 cup of sugar (i am doing my best to decrease my sugar and a lot of times i just use stevia for stuff like ice tea)… anyway… then i let it simmer for a few min then add a splash of vanilla extract and about 1/2 tsp of butter then i let it all cool and put it in another mason jar to get nice and cold in the fridge or freezer if i am in a hurry.


when everything is nice and cold, take a glass of ice, pour about 1/3 cup of coffee, 1/4 cup of fake condensed milk and however much more cold almond or rice milk to make it the right strength you like and it is wonderful!!
