Today, I’m going to show you how to make iced coffee with Keurig coffee makers. Grab a k-cup and let’s dig into these easy recipes.
HOW TO MAKE ICED COFFEE WITH REGULAR KEURIG K-CUPS
If you’re like me and you love making drinks from scratch, then you’ll love this method. Here’s what you need:
1 regular k-cup of your choice
4 large ice cubes
3 – 4 ounces cold milk
sugar, creamers – optional
1. Brew one k-cup at 4 oz cup setting. Choose 6 oz setting if you have an old model and no 4 oz option.
2. Put 4 large ice cubes in a glass, and really really slowly pour coffee over ice cubes.
3. Add cold milk, stir and enjoy!!
That’s my basic recipe. If you want to make flavored iced coffee (iced vanilla latte, iced caramel latte, iced hazelnut latte…) you can try two things. You can use flavored coffee syrup/creamer or use a flavored k-cup.
If you decide to use a syrup, use the recipe above and just add 1-2 tbsp of syrup to your coffee. So, to make an iced vanilla latte with Keurig, you will need 1 regular k-cup, 4 ice cubes, 3-4 oz cold milk and 1 or 2 tbsp vanilla syrup. Of course, it’s even easier with flavored k-cups. No syrups or anything the recipe is the same, just choose one of popular flavored k-cups to brew.
Can’t you just brew coffee directly over ice? You can, but you’ll get a better result if you first finish up brewing and then use your hands. It’s important to pour coffee slowly to give it some time to cool. This will also save all the flavors. End result: lively, tasteful and fresh iced coffee.
