DIY Wednesday--Greek Iced Coffee



So leave it to me to find a tasty drink that is perfect for hot summer days as soon as the weather has dropped a good 20 degrees from its 90+ days, but nonetheless. I found one. Seriously, I am never buying iced coffee from Mcdonald's again.

I figure, since I'm Greek (only 1/8, but I'm proud of it!) it would be appropriate to share a little Greek treat with everyone--to be honest though, I'm not quite sure what makes this treat Greek, BUT its good and its Greek, so does it matter?

This is a little spin on your average iced coffee, and the best part is that I have now found a use for the instant coffee I have hanging out in my cupboards!
                                                                                    
 Ingredients:
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1-2 teaspoons sugar
ice cubes
1/4 cup cold water
1/3 cup chilled milk
Optional: Whipped cream
Optional: Flavored creamer





To prepare:

Place instant coffee, sugar, ice cubes and water in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; shake vigorously for 30 seconds, or until frothy (the more froth the better!).

FROTH!

Stir in milk (and creamer if you desire), and top with a dollop of good 'ol whipped cream!

That's all!

Now if you are a little naughty you can add a flavored creamer to this already delicious treat.  I was REAL naughty because I added "Italian Cream"-----the Italians and Greeks get a long right?  So my Greek Iced coffee has a little Italian mixed in, but just color me multicultural because it was yummy!

(Oh, and it is only 57 calories! ---that is before all the naughty stuff!)


It's suggested to enjoy by using a straw.....
But then you can't sport a sweet 'stache like this!    

Thanks ahead of time for not judging me for my no make-up morning bed head look :)


Opa!
