It's no secret that I love iced coffee, and judging by the popularity of my Homemade Iced Coffee tutorial, I'd venture to guess that you all might like it just a little bit, too.
But you know what I really hate? Watered down iced coffee -- blah... Nothing spoils a tall refreshing glass of iced coffee for me faster!
Perhaps you've seen this coffee ice cubes trick before, but even if you have, just play along with me. I have a few tips for how to make iced coffee cubes that will make the process much easier!
First, I'd encourage you to pick up a couple of these push out silicone ice cube trays. They are seriously amazing!
I've always hated silicone trays because they're so flimsy, but this hard plastic tray is very sturdy and has silicone bottoms that make pushing the cubes out super easy. Each cube holds about one tablespoon, making it perfect for freezing premeasured coffee, wine, herbs, etc. for use in recipes.
Second, I personally think that cold-brewed coffee tastes best for this purpose because it's less bitter. I don't often have spare homemade iced coffee mix, but when I do, I make a batch of these coffee ice cubes with what's left. Leftover hot-brewed coffee will work in a pinch too, though!
I transfer the frozen cubes to one of the Ball plastic freezer containers that I use for our favorite easy smoothie recipe. They keep in the freezer pretty much indefinitely.
When I'm in the mood for a tall glass of iced coffee, I just put about six of the coffee ice cubes in a glass, and continue with my favorite iced coffee. We've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to prepare my homemade iced coffee mix, so I've been crushing on this International Delight Coldstone Sweet Cream iced coffee. Poured over my coffee ice cubes, it's the perfect fun summer treat on a hot day!
