Homemade Iced Coffee - Easy Peasy!

I don't know about you, but when when the warm weather comes, I instantly become addicted to Tim Horton's Iced Coffee.  Now, shelling out money every day for an ice coffee really adds up fast.  Having to budget my love of Timmy's into my monthly financial plan made me realize I was spending WAY to much money on this chilled-caffeine-infused goodness.  I decided to try and find a way to make my own.  The only problem is, if it's too much work, I won't stick to it.  Coffee to me, should be a grab and go item, so I honestly don't like to put much effort into it.  I played around with a few different ingredients, and then I finally mastered it!  It's simple, cheap and delicious!!  Are you ready?  It's just so easy I don't want you to miss it.  Here it is:

1 part brewed coffee (I put the left overs from my morning brewed coffee in the fridge, then use that)
1 part Vanilla Almond Milk (I use Silk brand)
Ice cubes

Directions: Pour all ingredients in glass, stir & enjoy!

THAT'S IT!  No need to add sugar or cream, or anything!  It's so beautifully simple!

A variation of this could be to freeze left over coffee in ice cube trays.  Place a glass full of frozen coffee cubes in a cup and add vanilla almond milk.  However, I find you have to let the coffee ice cubes melt in the almond milk a bit to get the full flavor, so I prefer keeping the coffee a liquid.

Let me know how it works for you!  :)
