Super Easy Iced Coffee

 

Hello there beautiful people,

I have a confession to make.

I am a coffee junkie.

I love it. In every form. Cold, hot, blended with ice, over ice, in cookies, in cake, in frosting, in pancakes, I can’t get enough. Its just so freakin delicious!

Today is an amazingly gorgeous day, and what’s perfect on a beautiful, sunny day with a clear blue sky? ICED COFFEE PEOPLE. So here, dear readers, is my favourite way to make it myself, which results in delicious, cold, refreshing, relatively inexpensive, iced coffee that you can have in approximately 2 minutes, none of this cold-press-brewing-letting-it-sit-overnight business. I need instant gratification, there’s no time for that shit, I have things to do and places to go, you know?! :p 

 

Things you’ll need:

– a tumbler with a lid (if you don’t have a tupperware cup with a lid like I happen to, then feel free to use a container of some sort)
– a keurig-type coffee maker with pods (if you don’t have one, don’t worry, I’ll get to that)
– your favourite coffee pod (mine is Van Houtte French Vanilla Light)
– ice
– your favourite coffee creamer (mine is Coffeemate Fat Free French Vanilla)

Lets get started:
– Fill your tumbler with lid with ice, and add in your desired amount of coffee creamer (I like to fill my tupperware cup up until about the 1/3 mark
– If you have a keurig-style coffee maker, set it to brew at the setting 6 (NOT 4), on mine, this is the second lowest setting, not the very lowest, feel free to experiment to get your desired strength of coffee.
– If you don’t have a keurig-style coffee maker, a shot of strong brewed espresso, or very strong brewed coffee will work just fine as well.
– Brew your coffee in the container/cup with ice and creamer, put on the lid, take it over to the sink, and shake, shake, shake to your hearts content (this is my favourite part).
– Add a few (I usually put in 3-4) ice cubes to a glass, pour in your shaken up iced coffee, and drink up !

 

Mmmm…

Emergency Chocolate Cake

I know its been awhile, and I’m sorry, but I’m back babies ! Without further ado, enjoy my express post on emergency chocolate cake 🙂

Sometimes, you just really need some chocolate cake, not in 2 hours while you prepare the batter, bake it, wait for it to cool, and frost it before you can eat it, but one of those, ineeditrightthissecondorI’lldie kind of dealy. This is perfect. It takes two minutes (literally), you only dirty a mug, a tablespoon measure, and a fork, and SHAZAM, chocolate cake.

Here we go !

1. Grab a mug of your choice
2. Melt 2 tbsp of butter in said mug, then add 2 tbsp of water, 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt and whisk with a fork (or a small whisk if you want to be fancy about it)
3. Add 2 tbsp cocoa powder and whisk again.
4. It will probably look like this
5. Add 4 tbsp of sugar, whisk.
6. Add 4 tbsp of flour, whisk until combined, I also like to add a few semi-sweet chocolate chips for a little extra chocolate-y goodness, but you can leave those out if you want.
7. Now it will look more like cake batter…like this ! Microwave for 60-90 seconds (I microwave mine for 70 and it comes out perfect)
8. Enjoy with some peanut butter or ice cream (or both, if you’re like me ;))

Chocolate cake whenever I want? One word. Dangerous.

Have a great week !
