This super easy and awesome Cold-Brewed Overnight Iced Coffee recipe made with Silk Coconut milk will get you going in the morning with a delicious drink.
Now that Spring is almost here, I’m officially making the switch over to Iced Coffee for my morning cuppa.
I love using my French Press to make Iced Coffee – it really couldn’t be any easier!
Here’s how I make it:
- Mix together coffee grounds, sugar, and water in the French press.
- Put it in the fridge and leave it overnight.
- Serve over ice with plenty of Silk Coconut Milk.
Sometimes if I know I’m going to be in need of extra, extra strong coffee I even freeze some leftovers in an ice cube tray and use them in place of regular ice cubes.
The ratio of coffee, sugar, and water is really based on your taste preferences and how strong you like your coffee. In general, you’ll want to use about twice the amount of coffee grounds you normally use for a hot brew.
For my French Press, which holds 34 ounces, I use 6 tablespoons coarse grounds hot coffee and 12 tablespoons coarse grounds for iced coffee. I like my coffee sweet, so I usually add about 4 or 5 tablespoons of sugar to the mix, too.
The second thing I want to share with you today is a story about my own experiences with Silk. Once upon a time, I was a HUGE milk drinker. I didn’t understand why someone would bother drinking soymilk or coconutmilk unless they were lactose-intolerant and simply couldn’t.
However, I did some research, and found that Silk Coconutmilk has fewer calories, more calcium, and more flavor than the traditional dairy milk I was drinking. I picked up a carton of Silk and swapped it out for dairy milk on my cereal and in my coffee and smoothies.
Cutting out these extra calories was so helpful, and the flavor helped me feel more satisfied by my meals.
Nowadays, I always have a gallon of Silk in my fridge. I switch it up quite a bit between the soymilk, almondmilk, and coconutmilk varieties, but I think my favorite is the coconutmilk. I know you guys totally saw that coming because I’m a complete sucker for anything coconut flavored.
Thanks so much for reading, friends. It means a lot to me that I can share my personal stories with you and tell you about products I use and love!
