Day 21 — A recipe

This one is a difficult post for me. I dont really have a recipe that I really love or know better than anyone else does.
My brothers AF recipe for jalapeño popcorn is pretty amazing but its not mine!
So this recipe is from one of those food channel hosts who makes terribly fatty food.
One of them being her iced coffee. I have yet to try it but its something that I could make without all the calories she packs in. I would switch sugar with a sugar substitute and the milk non-fat. Good coffee doesn't have to be calorie filled. :)

Iced coffee:
  • 1 pound Ground Coffee (good, Rich Roast)
  • 8 quarts Cold Water
  • Half-and-half (healthy Splash Per Serving)
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk (2-3 Tablespoons Per Serving)
  • Note: Can Use Skim Milk, 2% Milk, Whole Milk, Sugar, Artificial Sweeteners, Syrups...adapt To Your Liking!
Preparation Instructions (Adapted from Imbibe Magazine)

In a large container, mix ground coffee with water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.

Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and set over a pitcher or other container. Pour coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all liquid to run through. Discard grounds.

Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.

To make iced coffee, pack a glass full of ice cubes. Fill glass 2/3 full with coffee liquid. Add healthy splash of half-and-half. Add 2-3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (can use plain sugar instead) and stir to combine. Taste and adjust half-and-half and/or sweetened condensed milk as needed.
