Refrigerator Iced Coffee

**Head on over to Fit for my Fork to check out my guest post in the Fit Body Fit Mind series on my favorite book on healthy living!**

Good morning!

I really enjoyed my overnight oats in a jar yesterday, so much that I craved it again this morning…luckily I had another jar of peanut butter with only the last little bits left on the bottom.  I topped the overnight oats with some delicious fresh strawberries.  Perfect fuel for my 6am spin class!

Last Night

Last night, I actually got done practicing Body Pump, packing my meals, and getting ready for today earlier than expected so I had some time to work on Brian and I’s budget.  We have been trying a new-to-us system…the envelope method, and last night I finally got around to making the envelopes.

These envelopes will be filled with an alotted amount of cash for the month for us to spend on various areas of our life (grocery, car, fitness, fun, wedding, etc) and when then cash is gone…it’s GONE!  I am excited to see how it will work for Brian and me.

Iced Coffee

With the hot hot weather here in Indiana, I have been LOVING the little treat of iced coffee.  It can get kind of pricey to always head out to a coffee shop when the craving strikes, so I figured out a way to make it at home.  Seriously, I think it tastes better than the coffee shop!


The Iced Coffee Method:

When you brew a pot of coffee, put the extra (or the whole pot) in a large glass or jar in the fridge at least for a couple of hours if not overnight.

When you are ready to make the coffee, fill up a large glass with ice to the brim and pour the cold coffee over the top.

I like to use almond milk, my mom likes to use coffee creamer…either works and tastes delicious!  I mix 1/4 cup almond milk with 1 packet of stevia and a little vanilla extract.  I then pour that into the iced coffee.

Stir to combine, and ENJOY!!

I hope you enjoy your tasty iced coffee and have a great 4th of July Eve!!

  1. I totally used to do the “envelope method”. My grandma had mentioned it to me when my husband and I first got married. I hope it works out for you. Have a wonderful 4th of July :)
