Homemade Iced Coffee & Caramel Creamer

Homemade Iced Coffee & Caramel Creamer

Fall is in the air. Fall decorations are being pulled out of closets. And I have seen all over Pinterest and many blogs some amazing fall recipes. While I love a good pumpkin spice latte, the 80+ degrees we are still having around here don’t make me feel very “fall-y”.

I’m still making iced coffee around here. I eagerly await the fall drinks, but in case any of you are struggling with transitioning into fall with all this heat, I wanted to share this recipe with you! And because the last time I shared a homemade vanilla coffee creamer recipe many of you asked for a Caramel Coffee Creamer recipe, I created one and thought I would share!

After many trials and errors, this is what I have found to be the best way to make iced coffee. I tried hot coffee on ice, but all I got was watered down coffee. Then I tried hot brewed coffee chilled in the fridge. Didn’t quite have the right taste. Then I discovered cold brewing coffee. Perfection! In my opinion, it tastes the closest to those amazing $4 coffee drinks you can buy at the coffee house.
