Ice Cubes.

It's getting warmer so i am making the most of it and drinking iced coffee!

I just made Vanilla ice cubes to blend with it. Almond milk + vanilla + sugar!

Does anyone else have some refreshing ice cube ideas?

Lucky you. I can have iced coffee or iced tea without even adding Ice.

Here's a handy recipe on how to make Ice for those who need the practice until it gets warmer. And check out the reader reviews/ comments too.

But you want to know for real, I've only used leftover juice, citrus or coffee or tea so the ice didn't dilute the drinks.

I didn't read all the comments but the ones I did were funny! "Free Range water"? Needed a laugh.

Like Whiska, I freeze extra coffee to use in iced coffee. My sister likes flavored hot and iced coffee so she stirs a little syrup into the coffee before she freezes it.

Are you looking for ice for coffee specifically or are you just looking for non-standard ice cubes in general?

For the coffee, a little milk (or equivalent) mixed with cinnamon and a little caramel syrup would probably be good. Chocolat syrup and vanilla mixed with leftover coffee or milk of some sort might be good. Chocolate syrup and almond milk are awesome together and might make good ice cubes. Hazelnut flavoring be good mixed into some kind of milk or leftover coffee. If you are looking for an adult beverage, would something like Bailey's freaze into ice cubes?

Ooo Bailey's ice cube sounds good. I also like the idea of adding syrup to frozen coffee and i like a hint of vanilla. Might try that tonight!

Tehe Whiskadoodle those reviews made me giggle!!
