Peppermint Vanilla Iced Coffee Recipe (Tasty Tuesday)

Iced Coffee Recipe

Affordable Iced Coffee Recipe

Many days I am so busy during the morning and early afternoon I don’t even realize if I’m getting tired or not. I guess it’s just what I like to call “mommy mode.” You might know what I’m talking about.  As a parent, sometimes you just have so many things running through your head that you can’t shut it off to sleep!

so what happens when you hit a wall in the middle of the afternoon? In the winter I brew a pot of coffee and treat myself to a hot cup. Usually it works like a charm. I get my 2nd wind and I’m ready to go again!

When the thermometer climbs over 100 degrees, coffee is the last thing on my mind. But iced coffee is a different story! Same concept, just cold and refreshing. Make it at home and save yourself some money with this Peppermint Iced Coffee Recipe!
