Green Mountain Coffee Giveaway and How to Make Your Own Iced Coffee at Home ~CLOSED~









Coffee, Coffee, Coffee.

I have it running through my veins!

That and maple syrup.

 I Like to start my mornings off in true New England fashion, a breakfast slathered in pure Vermont Maple Syrup... and 1 maybe 2 or lets not joke around here... 3 cups of  Green Mountain Coffee to get me started.

Then there is the 2pm pick me up that is a definite must.... that's where the iced coffee comes in!




How To Make Iced Coffee At Home

To make your coffee you need to plan 24 hours ahead...

What I do is on a morning that I'm brewing hot coffee... I pour the left over coffee in the pot into my ice cube tray and freeze over night. Coffee iced cubes are a MUST it prevents you from having that watered down iced coffee that just doesn't do the trick!

After you have done that, brew up to 12 cups of your favorite   Green Mountain Coffee (Mine is their Breakfast Blend... we love the stuff!) I use 2 tbs of coffee for every cup of water.

Pour hot coffee into a heat proof jug of some sort.

For every cup of coffee you brew add 1-2 tbs of granulated sugar.  Give a good stir. By adding the sugar while it is hot you are insuring your sugar melts... Don't you hate when you take a big swig of coffee through your straw and get crunchy bits of sugar?... yeah no fun!

Cover and refrigerate over night.

Fill your large glass with coffee iced cubes. Pour cold sweetened coffee over the top, leave about 1-2 inches for your cream.

I always use Light Cream... did you know it's lower in calories than half and half?!?!? Good to know huh?

Pour your cream over the top give a light stir with your straw.

Sit back and enjoy!



NOW for the good stuff!

Green Mountain Coffee has so kindly offered to send one of my readers on pound of MY favorite Green Mountain Coffee.



One lucky winner will receive a pound of their Breakfast Blend Ground Coffee.

What you have to do to win is....

Tell me how many cups of coffee do you drink in a day?
