Hello coffee lovers! I have a confession to make – I am slightly, just slightly, addicted to coffee.
I can go a day without it, but I rarely do.
I love having a hot cup in the morning, after lunch, and after dinner.
And let me tell you; it never fails to satisfy me.
Coffee has been my constant companion for as long as I can remember.
I love the taste, the aroma, and the flavors, and it goes so well with chocolate.
I don’t feel any negative side effects from caffeine. I enjoy it in all its forms.
But now that summer is here, I don’t want to give up my beloved coffee.
So I discovered the magic of iced coffee! It’s the perfect alternative to any sugary, cool summer shake.
I love regular iced coffee. It’s just a café latte with cold milk and ice cubes.
When I want to indulge, I crush the ice, cut the milk, and add a splash of maple syrup.
Because it’s mostly water with a little coffee, syrup, and milk, this summer drink is amazing.
That way, you stay hydrated and get that little sugar you need out in the sun.
Best of all?
You can use any sweetener, soy, rice, almond, oat, or cow’s milk and make it with decaf coffee.
There’s no excuse not to indulge in this delicious summer shake.
Whether you’re a coffee lover or not, give it a try!
