“After realizing the amount of calories in one of those delightful drinks and how much of my paycheck I was handing over to Starbucks, I set out to create the perfect iced coffee drink. The secret is not what ingredients you use but how you use them.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a strongly brewed pot of your favourite coffee (plain or flavoured.
  2. Let the coffee cool down, pour 1.5 cup into an ice cube tray and freeze.
  3. To make 2 servings:
  4. Blend together 1 cup of skim milk, 4tsp sugar or sugar substitute and 1 tray of the coffee cubes until smooth.
  5. By using frozen coffee cubes instead of ice cubes you will get a much smoother consistency and stronger coffee taste.
  6. To jazz it up add a tablespoon or 2 of caramel, chocolate syrup or cream liqueur.
  7. Pour drink into glasses and top off with 3 tbs whipped cream on each.
