Guys, this iced instant coffee has been my lifesaver this summer!
The past two weeks have been EXTREMELY hot around here. That kind of hot that makes you do weird things.
Things like cooling yourself down in the frozen section of a supermarket while pretending you are checking out the products. Things like sitting right next to a fan in the hope that your body temperature will rapidly drop down. Using icebox cooling pads like you would use a hot water bottle in winter… Yes, I’ve done that all.
But can you blame me? The heat makes me super unproductive! I find it hard to stay focused. My whole body is exhausted. After 1 pm my eyes start closing. No wonder Spaniards need their siesta in such heat. Apparently, siesta is good for you.
Now because I rarely sleep during the day I look for other ways to help me stay sane this summer. This year I rely on this cinnamon iced instant coffee recipe! It cools my body down + boosts my energy and alertness which is exactly what I need.
By the way, if you are in a rush and need a quick caffeine fix try this 1-minute instant iced coffee. If you have like an extra minute to spare + want to impress your guests make this 3 color cinnamon flavored coffee.
Why should you make this cinnamon iced instant coffee?

How to make iced coffee with instant coffee?
Using instant (soluble) coffee is easy and saves us a lot of time. It’s perfect for making iced coffee because it’s ready in a few minutes. By that, I mean 2-3 maybe even less.
First start off with blending ice, instant coffee, cinnamon and sugar with a hand blender. This will only take a few seconds. Maybe 20-30 tops. Nice (quite thick) foam will form.
Prepare your glasses by pouring the milk in & adding some ice cubes. I fill about a third of my glass with milk because I like milky coffee. If you prefer less, then reduce the amount. Now it’s time to pour in the frothed iced coffee.
Trick: to get nice layers, hold a tablespoon inside the glass so it’s touching it. Pour the coffee slowly onto the spoon. Divide into 2 glasses and top with some extra foam (if some are left). Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar over and serve.
Just so you know the 3 color effect will not happen right away. Allow this instant iced coffee to sit for about a minute before serving.
