starting to gravitate towards iced coffee now that the weather is warming up

Any suggestions on an easy yet flavorful home brew?

jeaniem-this is what i do, i brew a cup of starbucks columbian coffee, let it cool down, fill a tall glass with ice, add some hwc and some torani almond rocca sf flavoring. I think it's a really good ice coffee.

I like to put ice in the blender with some coffee, then add hwc and flavored syrups.

I wish I knew how to make a DD's imitation iced. I've tried dozens of ways, none taste as good as they make at Dunkie's.

I especially love the turbo iced mmmm.

Dissolve one tsp instant coffee in sm amt of hot water. Add dairy/non dairy product of choice, abt 8 oz, add sweetener of choice, and any SF syrups. Add ice or blend in blender. Closest thing to expensive drinks by SB and DD.

I like mine pretty doctored up! LOL!

Char's Mochaccino Frappe

8 oz. unsweetened chocolate almond milk or soy milk
1-2 oz. heavy cream
2-3 tsp. instant coffee powder (I use decaf Nescafe)
1 tsp. Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
1 scoop vanilla, chocolate, or plain whey protein powder (I used plain Designer's Whey)
2 tsp. Thicken Thin Not/Starch or Not/Sugar
Sweetener to taste - I used a packet each of SteviaPlus and Xylitol, and a splash of DaVinci's SF chocolate syrup
8 or so ice cubes

Blend all ingredients except ice cubes til all the powders are dissolved, then add the ice cubes and blend til smooth.

Made 2 12 oz. servings

I will often freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays and use that in my iced coffee. That way it doesn't get watered down by the ice cubes.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Charski-- Is there something I could use in place of the 2 tsp. Thicken Thin Not/Starch or Not/Sugar?

Jeanie, you could use 1/2 to 1 tsp. of guar or xanthan gum, or glucomannan powder. You may need to experiment with any of those to get the thickness you want without it getting slimy, as those things can be if too much is used!
