“Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. ” – You’ve Got Mail
Doesn’t school starting mean it should be fall like? We’ve hit 100 degrees here in Kansas City the past couple days and school has already been in session for 2 weeks! I’m ready to break out the long sleeved tee’s and jeans, but as Kansas would have it, I am still sitting here simmering and sweating in sundresses.
I’m one of those people who can drink hot coffee in the mornings no matter what the temperature is outside, but once the afternoon rolls around, I want something cold and refreshing. It never fails that around 3pm, right before the kids get home from school, I start to hit a slump and need a cool pick me up. I love iced coffee but always forget to plan ahead by brewing some to have ready in the fridge. I am so glad my friends at International Delight do all the work for me! With the International Delight Iced Coffee, all I have to do for a refreshing afternoon pick me up is put some ice in a glass, open up the carton and pour. Simple as can be.
When I want more than just an iced coffee… when I want something a little more indulgent… I turn my International Delight Iced Coffee into a milkshake! My favorite combination is 1 cup of International Delight Iced Coffee in Vanilla flavor with 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream and a handful of strawberries. Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour in a tumbler and top with whipped cream and strawberries if you are feeling extra indulgent!
So it looks like summer is here to stay, for at least a few weeks longer… as long as I get to continue to cool off with my favorite iced coffee beverages, I guess I can deal!
How do you enjoy your iced coffee? I’d love it if you’d share any of your iced coffee tips below so I can switch things up in the afternoon!
