Basically, as the title suggests, I took the coffee left in the pot at the end of the afternoon, poured it into an ice cube tray, let em freeze, filled a glass with coffee cubes, filled the glass with almond milk, gave it a stir, and I was SO HAPPY. You see, I do love coffee, but I've really been on a tea kick lately. Ummm, not anymore. The coffee cubes melt into the almond milk and make this creamy, delicious, perfect little beverage. I am buying a butt-load of ice cube trays, filling them all with coffee, and drinking iced coffee like this every. single. day. It's better (and WAY cheaper) than the iced coffee drink I typically get at Starbuck's and it's probably wayyyyyyyy lower on the calories/sugar chart. The PERFECT afternoon pick-me-up or early morning treat. You need this. You really do. :-)
I've spoken before on my choice of almond milk- I don't drink dairy milk and try to avoid the majority of dairy products period. I miss ice cream, but when I had it last week it wreaked havoc on my tummy. So almond milk is my choice, and the vanilla flavor I used here tastes like a milkshake to me :-D A healthy milkshake. Can't beat that. You're welcome to use dairy milk if you so desire, but I do recommend you try almond milk or coconut milk too :) I don't really think I need to spell this "recipe" out in actual step-by-step directions (my readers are SMART yo) so I'll just show you the pictures...
