The heatwave last week made the thought of drinking hot coffee unpalatable to me, so I started buying iced-coffees in Starbucks, which is conveniently located near the office in Soho. That can turn into an expensive habit though, so I’ve turned to making my own.
In the morning I make a pot of coffee in a French press with a spoonful of Ghee (Ghee Easy make a great organic version), to turn it into bulletproof coffee, which provides a kick of energy and is (allegedly) good for concentration. Then I add a large splash of cold water, ice cubes and some cold almond milk. I then put this in a stainless steel keep cup and it stays cold for HOURS. It’s the best purchase I’ve ever made, and has definitely saved me money on iced-coffees in the long run. It’s also way better for the environment to have a reusable cup rather than buying a new throwaway plastic cup everyday.
Good for your purse and the planet, and delicious too!
