Aw! That morning brew!! Espresso, latte, black, mocha, or iced like I prefer. That quick cup of coffee or for some, that jug, to grab for our morning commute to get us focused and awake for the day.
Well,..have you ever just held it for a moment and breathed in the aroma of that joe? Mmmmmm what a time to just reflect on the day at hand! We are so hurried oftentimes that we miss out on some of the sweetest things….speaking of sweetness! Where’s my creamer!
Life can be just like a cup of coffee…dark, heated, even having bitterness to it. But to have sweetness like the creamer we add….well it brings it to life!! ….At least for me it does! I find my sweetness in the love of my husband, the joy of my kids…and usually always in my friendships!
Think about it…the next time you reach for your cup, inhale the aroma….relax in the moment. Think of a few of your sweet ones…or memories! You’ll find that cup of joe really can get you through your morning! But hey, don’t leave it sit too long…or you might look down and see there’s a fly in your coffee!
Be blessed! Be a blessing!
My Iced Coffee
I know there are other ways to fix and prepare an iced coffee, but this one works for me and my family.
You will need:
- regular brewed coffee
- flavored creamer
- ice cubes
Brew your coffee. ( I do mine right before bedtime) After the brew is done place in a mason jar or other storing source, then put in fridge to chill.
In the morning pour desired amount in a tall glass (leave room for other ingredients) add your flavored creamer, then top off with a handful of ice cubes.
Watch the creamer marble through the coffee! Pretty sight! Now enjoy!!
PS_ Save back a cup of that cold coffee to add to my delicious cake. Recipe coming soon!
