HOW TO MAKE ICED COFFEE WITH KEURIG
You will need:
1 regular dark roasted k-cup of your choice
4 large ice cubes
4 ounces cold milk or half and half
1. Brew one dark roasted k-cup at 4-ounce cup setting. If you don’t have the 4 oz cup setting, you can use the 6 oz cup size.
2. Place 4 large ice cubes in a tall glass and pour the coffee over the ice cubes. Be sure you pour it slowly, it’s the best part.
3. Add 4 oz cold milk, or half and half, stir well, taste, and if needed, add sugar to sweeten. I tend to skip the sugar but if you like your coffee sweet, you can certainly add 1 or 2 teaspoons.
*For vegetarian or dairy-free: Substitute milk with almond or coconut milk.

how to make good iced coffee with keurig
Should I wait for the coffee to cool first: What makes this recipe great is that you don’t have to wait for the coffee to cool. You do want to pour the coffee slowly over ice and not just pour all at once. Do a little pour at the time.
Do I need to buy special k-cups: No, they don’t make special Keurig iced coffee pods to make cold coffee with Keurig. You can use any of your favorite regular k-cups. I do recommend to use bold, dark roasted k-cups for the best results.
Best k-cups for iced coffee: These are some of my favorite k-cups for iced coffee. They hold their flavor and don’t taste watered down when iced.
How much ice cubes is too much: I know that Starbucks does it differently (huge tumblers and a ton of ice), but too much ice isn’t good. Use only 4-5 ice cubes per serving. Obviously, if we use too many ice cubes, we’ll end up with a watery cup of coffee.
Make it even better: The only thing that makes this iced coffee even more delicious is sweetened condensed milk. To make Vietnamese coffee with your Keurig, first, brew the k-cup at smallest cup setting and slowly pour over ice cubes. Add 2 – 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk and stir. Splash in some half and half. Talk about yum!
