Skip the line at the coffee shop and be your own barista this summer. Blended iced coffee creations in your Vitamix machine are quick, easy, and can be tailored to create your own signature blends . Experiment with flavored syrups, cocoa, or added fruit like banana to customize your preferences. A splash of almond or soy milk adds a dairy-free calcium boost.
TIPS: Use espresso or darker blends of coffee as the ice will dilute the strength of the coffee flavor. Save leftover coffee from the morning pot and chill in a bottle in the refrigerator for handy use in iced coffee recipes.
Try these easy recipes for a morning boost without the wait.
- Cappuccino Smoothie: Coffee that doubles as dessert.
- Moco Coco Chilled Coffee: Try coffee and coconut for a sweet twist.
- Cappuccino Shake: Easy as instant coffee, but so much tastier.
- Frozen Irish Coffee: An iced coffee with whiskey and Irish Cream Liqueur. Simply omit the alcohol for a wakeful morning beverage.
