Iced Coffee + Iced Tea on a budget

So this year I have been big on trying not to go to Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts everyday. Most days, they mess up my order and I get upset. I started to think, it's probably better if I make it at home because I can control what goes in it + I know I can be happy with the outcome. I have a couple different iced coffees I like at home, and I'll share a few with you as well as ice tea.

For a regular iced coffee, 

1. Brew a batch of coffee ( I prefer a darker roast, something stronger because it will get watered down)
2. Leave it in fridge for 24 hours
3. Pour over ice and add almond milk creamer (this is the best one and I've tried EVERY one on the market)
4. If you want extra potent coffee and don't want it to be watered down, pour coffee into ice cube tray as well and use those in your iced coffee.
4. Mix + enjoy!

Regular hot coffee,

For the record, I never liked hot coffee until I started using it with this creamer. Game changer. I buy 2 bottles every time I walk into a Target, I'm addicted!

I use dunking donuts brew and this creamer and it's so delicious!

For more of an espresso over ice,

This one takes like a greek frappe or a Starbucks double shot espresso! 

1. Takes two tablespoons of Nescafe, Two tablespoons of milk of your choice, I use almond, and a packet of sugar + shake in a jar for about 30 seconds.
2. It will be like a foam consistency. Put it over ice + then pour over more milk of your choice to your liking.

These are the best ways I have found to make ice coffee at home.

For Iced Tea 

I'll preface this by saying that this is like Peach Green Tea Lemonade from Starbucks. 

1. Buy this from Target
2. Pour half the amount of water, or lemonade, I prefer water! 
3. Squeeze half a lemon
4. Add sugar/stevia
5. ADDED STEP: I do this step because this is the only way I can drink apple cider vinegar. I put a cap full in this drink + I don't taste it! 
6. Mix all together, put ice over + enjoy.

You can pin all these images to try and save for later! I would love if you could pin them and try them & let me know if you try it!
