Shake Up Your Summer Caffeine Consumption With These Iced Coffee Recipes

If there’s one thing I love more than summer dressing it is iced coffee season. Quenches your thirst and provides a mid-morning, mid-afternoon, all day caffeine boost, gone are the days of anxiously waiting for your coffee to be cool enough to drink but hot enough to still enjoy.

If you’re anything like me, coffee has become a necessary part of your morning routine. We rely on it to get us going for the day and to continue on a streak of productivity through the entirety of the day but a daily trip to your local coffee shop to get your fix can eat away at your weekly budget. It’s a luxury and one ideal for a Friday treat but where possible, saving those pennies and making your own delicious version of iced coffee can be a real life-saver.

Your main concern may be that you won’t be able to make them quite so sensational as your favourite barista but the good news is that there are recipes out there that even you can replicate in your own kitchen and find yourself skipping out the door feeling smug and energised by your summer-friendly boost of caffeine. Whether a weekend indulgence iced latte or one for your morning commute, with these recipes you’ve got the skills to be your very own barista.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

One of the biggest misconceptions with switching to home cold coffee recipes is that you have to give up all of the bells and whistles of your usual coffee order at Starbucks. In reality, with free reign over the ingredients, you can probably make things, even more, OTT with your coffee recipes at home. We’ll never be able to walk away from an iced caramel macchiato completely so we’re determined to master this recipe at home.
