Iced Coffee

This summer, I've been trying to drink less of this...

And more of this...

But then I discovered this...

The summer months here at Love and Life at Leadora are hot, and even in the morning a cup of hot coffee isn't too appetizing.  So when  I saw this recipe for iced coffee on the Pioneer Woman's blog, I knew I wanted to give it a try!  

A recipe for iced coffee?... I thought iced coffee was leftover coffee with ice in it, but, boy, was I wrong.   There is quite a method to it, which is easy but takes awhile.  Also, don't be daunted by the amount of coffee and water used in the recipe.  I made only a quarter of the recipe, and my iced coffee turned out delicious! 


  1. Thank you, I'll go check it out! Yesterday, in honor Father's Day (my daddy is in heaven), my mom gave me a frappe machine from Costco. That's a little ironic, considering that my dad hated coffee, but I only drink things with a hint of coffee in them. I like blended iced drinks because for me, they last longer.

    I hope you are having a beautiful week!

  3. Heather,
    That coffee looks delish! My daughter and I are both BIG coffee lovers and I can't wait to try it!
    She loves all the cold coffee drinks at SB so I think she will really like this, I know I will!
    P.S. Read your "summer of you" list, sounds fabulous to me!

  4. I love iced coffee,i discovered it in Greece.Hope your mother and daughter enjoy their holiday in France. You may enter my giveaway, i am sending anywhere.I will put your name if you like.

  5. I really do feel better when I lay off the Coke and drink more water. I'll have to check out her recipe for the coffee.

  6. Hi Heather,
    I don't think I've ever had iced coffee before...Hmmm, I wonder why? I love coffee! I should definitely give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  7. I understand but...I LOVE diet coke!! I try to only drink 1 a day and the rest of the time just water. I have thought of trying to give it up just makes me sooo happy! :) The first 3 sips of my DC are heaven! Yum..I want one now! I know this post is really about Iced coffee but Diet Coke IS my coffee! And I do like it with ice so I guess it's sort of my iced coffee! I think my love of DC makes me sound a little crazy...Oh well..Enjoy whatever you are drinking!

  8. I'm off to check that out! I have SUCH a weakness for iced coffee in the summmer :D

  9. Hmmm...sounds good! Maybe I'll give it a try when it gets a little warmer around in late August! LOL!
    BTW, I still can't comment as signed into my google acct. But, at least I can comment!

  10. I got my mom off of diet drinks and onto water. She's doing a lot better. I find so many people have tons of health problems from those diet drinks. I wish more people were aware of all the problems diet drinks cause.
