Sometimes when I’m in bed, early in the morning, I think, “I could go back to sleep, or I could get up early, sneak downstairs, and have coffee all by myself.” Can I let you in on a little secret? Coffee and “me time” always wins! Most mornings around here are so rushed and hectic that I end up reheating my coffee two or three times. Usually I can tell the type of day this Mamma will have by the number of times I need to reheat my coffee. By mid-morning, I usually find my coffee cup in bizarre places like yesterday’s cup on the bathroom sink, sadly sitting on the dresser in one of my kids’ rooms, or my personal favorite, still hanging out in the microwave from one of my many reheats.Sigh. So in order to get a little “me time” and to drink my coffee while it’s still hot, it’s early mornings for this lady.
I really don’t mind the early mornings, and now that summer is upon us,the warmer weather makes drinking hot coffee all day a little difficult for me. So I’m getting really creative and making some of my favorite iced coffee drinks at home. But the key to a great iced coffee is the same as hot coffee: you have to start with a really delicious brand of coffee. So for this recipe and all of my daily hot and reheated coffee, I’m loving McCafé coffee pods. Have you tried them yet? I’m sort of in love with them and they worked perfectly in my iced carmel macchiato recipe!
- McCafé Premium Roast coffee pod
- 1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1-2 tbs Vanilla Coffee Syrup
- Squeezable caramel sauce (I grabbed mine in the ice cream topping isle)
- 1/2 Cup Ice
Step 1: Brew one McCafé coffee pod on the 8 or 10 oz setting.
Step 2: In a separate cup, pour 1-2 tbs vanilla coffee syrup.
Step 3: Add 1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk.
Step 4: Add 1/2 cup ice to cup.
Step 5: Pour the brewed coffee over all ingredients.
Step 6: Drizzle caramel sauce on top of coffee. (I usually repeat this step 3 or 4 times. It’s just so good)

There was even a McCafé demo happening at Walmart the day I was there so I had the chance to sample a few of the flavors. They were all are really yummy, but the hazelnut was my favorite.
So whatever way you brew your coffee, you can grab McCafé in bags in coffee pods. The coffee also comes in lots of options with 8 flavors to choose from, and is made with 100% Arabica Beans which means you are getting premium quality coffee.
