Cold-Pressed Iced Coffee
This one is for the moms (and dads!) out there.
Last week, I shared a recipe for Frozen Hot Chocolate, which is the perfect after-school snack for upcoming hot and humid days. But what about us moms? I don’t know about you, but I’m usually desperate for a cup of caffeine around 3 pm every day. Only now, here in Toronto, it’s far too hot to indulge in a steaming cup of something, so I’ve switched out for my favourite teas in favour of some cold-pressed beverages.
Why cold-pressed? Experts state that while you could easily make a pot of coffee (or tea) and cool it over a glass of ice, the cold-brewed version (steeping coffee grounds in cold water for 12 hours) has lower acidity and less bitterness than warm-brewed coffee. Plus, it takes no special equipment to do it this way, making the process incredibly simple.
Oh, and last weekend when I hit up my local coffee shop for a large iced coffee and medium iced tea and I paid a whopping $7 for the two. The at-home version is pennies per glass and can be customized with your favourite flavours.
What are you drinking to stay cool these days?
