21 Refreshing Iced Coffee Recipes

Sometimes you need coffee and dessert, simultaneously. And iced coffee is a perfect and delicious pick-me-up, especially on a hot afternoon. Maybe it’s the DIY in us, but we never really understood paying $4 for an iced coffee when we can make the same deliciousness in our own kitchen! So, it’s time to experiment with being your own barista. Check out these 21 iced coffee recipes that we’re super excited to try!

1. Condensed Milk Iced Coffee: It is tradition in Spain to drink hot shots of espresso with a generous scoop of condensed milk to add creamy sweetness, but obviously it’s extra delicious iced. (via Delicious Shots)
