Recipe: Iced Coffee Cubes

iced coffee cubes

If loving coffee is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Coffee is an essential part of my day and it makes me feel happy. I’m always thinking of unique ways to incorporate coffee into my meals. For example, the other day I had a delicious a coffee cupcake from one of my favorite bakeries and it tasted like heaven because the coffee aroma was strong and each bite was so sweet and flavorful.

I love that there are countless varieties of flavors and ways to make it. Now that spring has sprung, I’ve been drinking more ice coffee and each drink hasn’t always been a pleasant experience. Sometimes the coffee is weak and the one thing I hate most is diluted coffee. Surprisingly, I found an awesome recipe using iced coffee cubes on Kiran Turan which to me is a super easy solution to weak coffee.


  • a pot of your favorite brewed coffee, cooled at room temperature
  • 1 tsp of your favorite flavoring: vanilla extract/coffee liquor etc.
  • a few tablespoons of your favorite sweetener
  • favorite milk/creamer

Head over to Kiran Tarun for the full instructions and more delicious recipes!
