Low-carb iced coffee!

In an ongoing series devoted to keeping money in wallets during the impending recession while still enabling eyeballs to bulge from caffeinated sockets all over the world, following is a standard low-carb iced coffee recipe.

Quick tip: Using ice cubes made from brewed coffee helps keep coffee from becoming watered down in the actual beverage.

Low-carb iced coffee

1 Tbsp heavy cream
8 ounces cold coffee
1 cup ice cubes
1 packet sweetener (or davincis syrup)

Prepare coffee in advance and chill for 3-4 hours.
In a glass, combine chilled coffee, cream, sweetener and ice cubes. Cover glass and shake until frothy.
Tip: If adding granular sweetener, add to the coffee to dissolve while the coffee is still hot and prior to refrigerating. If adding Davincis or other low-carb syrup, add when the beverage is cold.

Makes 1 – 16 ounce iced coffee

  1. I use sugar free creams. They are sweet enough and you don’t have to wait till the granules dissolve.

  2. Brilliant! And yummy. I like to make this at night (the hot coffee), stick it in the frig, then it’s so easy to put in my reusable coffee mug and take to work. This is good on 2 levels – it tastes great, and I get the satisfaction when I see my co-workers come in with the $4 coffee drinks. That makes me smile on the inside 🙂

  3. This brings back fond memories from my childhood. My parents used to drink iced coffee in the summer.

  4. Lovely, I have been looking for a low carb coffee! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Hi I thought we could not have artificial sweeteners x
