Instant Iced Coffee With Milk

We love this recipe for a quick and refreshing cup of iced coffee anytime! You can totally dissolve instant coffee granules in cold water, it just takes a little more stirring. Once the coffee is blended, add your favorite creamer and/or artificial sweeteners.

And if you need more of a pick-me-up, just stir in more instant coffee. This will boost the caffeine content of the beverage. This recipe is great for making an individual serving because you can really tailor it to how you like your coffee!
