Cold Brew Iced Coffee

WELL! It officially really feels like Summer. 90 degrees all last week and I’m seriously at the point of retiring my morning hot coffee for ALL iced coffee. It’s August and it was bound to happen already. BUT, don’t give me hot coffee watered down with ice. I want some good, strong cold brew; and it’s EASY to make!

This week for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s make some COFFEE!


Let’s break this down into five steps!



Step 1: Pour 1 3/4 cup ground coffee into a pitcher.

Step 2: Pour 4 cups of water into the pitcher.

Step 3: STIR.

Step 4: Cover with plastic wrap and let steep for 12 hours.

Step 5: Remove plastic and place a cheese cloth over a beverage dispenser or an additional pitcher. Pour coffee over the cloth. 

Now simply add ice and serve as desired!


BOOM! Fresh, delicious cold brew. Ready for the heat wave.


Use it in my Coffee Fudge Chunk Ice Cream!

What’s your preference: Hot or Cold Coffee?
