This cinnamon vanilla dolce iced coffee is made with a slightly sweet (but not too sweet) homemade coffee creamer and coffee made using an iCoffee machine. The coffee creamer and coffee combine to make the most delicious coffee for on-the go, or for enjoying on a warm summers morning.
One week ago today, my husband and I went to go see a late night comedy show. They had added a showing because the 7:30pm showing had sold out in something like 5 minutes. The late night show was scheduled to start at 10:30pm. Want to know what happened last time we went to a late night comedy show? Guesses anyone? If you thought to yourself ‘she fell asleep’ that would be correct! How embarrassing, I know. Two minutes in, I was out cold. I remember nothing, like not a single thing. This time, I was determined not to let that happen, so I knew I wanted some coffee.
But I didn’t want any ‘ole cup of coffee. I wanted something with a little pizzazz.
I love latte’s at coffee shops with a hint of syrup and cream. But I hate when the sweetness of the syrups is overpowering, and frankly, they taste fake. Same thing happens when I buy store bought coffee creamers, they just have an odd flavor to them. I don’t know what it is…could it perhaps be the insanely long shelf life achieved only by crazy additives, perhaps? Whatever the case, I knew I wanted to make my own coffee creamer, like when I made vanilla bean cream coffee creamer. Also, like when I made vanilla bean cream coffee creamer the coffee machine I used was an iCoffee machine. This time though, I used an iCoffee Express.
I love the iCoffee brewing systems because they use the patent pending SpinBrew™ Technology with a spinning needle to spin, steam and stir coffee inside the single serve k-type cup (all competitors use a stationary needle.) SpinBrew creates a rich mini-French Press-like effect to brew coffee with no bitter or acidic aftertaste. Also, coffee is made in a about a minute, it’s super quick and perfect for on the go! The iCoffee machines are sold nationwide at Bed Bath and Beyond®.
And I’m happy to report that I stayed awake and enjoyed the entire comedy show!
To show you how the cinnamon vanilla dolce iced coffee gets made, I made a recipe video to show you how it all works:
Hope you enjoy!
