Raise your hands – how many coffee lovers are in the house? Picture me raising two hands, please. I always get excited when I’m about to enjoy a hot cup of coffee, don’t you?
I’m going to show you how I make my favorite easy homemade ice coffee beverage as well as 10 coffee lover gifts that you (and me) will want now!
Let’s start with how I get to enjoy one of my favorite ice coffee beverages – Dunkin Donuts makes a frozen ice coffee that’s out of this world – generally, it’s overly sweet so I have to ask them not to use their syrup in it which is OK and tastes just as good.
I figured I’d try to make one at home and I must say, I’ve come pretty close. Oh, and be sure to check out our other Amazon Coffee Lover Products too!
I start by crushing ice in my Ninja Blender and wow – that thing knows how to crush ice the right way! Aside from the array of delicious mixed drinks I’ve made with it, ice crushing is one of my favorite things to do in it. I make a mean Sugar Free Berry Slushie with it too.
You can’t get this with a regular blender – at least I never could.
I used my Ninja Coffee Maker (BTW: It’s best coffee maker I’ve ever owned!) with my settings on Cold Over Ice – and wow – super delicious. I add one packet of Truvia and bam! At times, I prefer it black – when I’m feeling frisky, I add a drop of half & half.
Try it sometime – I know you will love as much as I do. Call me crazy but, I love them in the winter months too.
Here are some of my favorite Coffee Lover Gifts – they all made my Amazon Wish List! I handpicked each one and, I hope you love them as much as I do. My kids inherited their love for coffee from me, and I know they will love them as stocking stuffers too.
