Whether it be a cup of coffee first thing after waking up, with breakfast, snacks, or basically any time of the day – Coffee lovers just can’t get enough of this caffeinated beverage.

This popularity of coffee is further aided by the fact that there is no scarcity of options and variety when it comes to a cup of coffee. People can treat themselves to regular black coffee, healthful espresso shots, lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, americanos, mochas, frappuccinos, the list goes on and on…

All these delectable coffee drinks can be enjoyed either steaming hot or in iced form depending on one’s taste. Coffee can also come from different places in the world, Arabian coffee for instance, is known for having great health benefits.

When it comes to coffee enthusiasts, a large section of people prefer to prepare their coffee at home rather than spend obscene amounts of money at high-end coffee shops. 

And considering the large number of resources that are available on the internet, all these mouthwatering espresso drinks can not just be consumed in a modern coffee shop but can also be prepared at home.

Keeping that in mind, here is an easy and basic instant iced coffee recipe that you can modify according to your liking to prepare a highly enjoyable cup of coffee.

Instant Iced Coffee Recipe

This instant iced coffee recipe just requires a trio of ingredients and will hardly take more than 2-3 minutes of your time to come up with a yummy glassful of iced coffee.

This makes it a great alternative for your regular hot brewed coffee in the morning especially if you are short n time and need to rush to the office.

It can also be a great option on a lazy Sunday wherein you don’t want to spend the effort required to prepare a cup of your usual hot brewed coffee.

Furthermore, the taste and feel of this iced coffee is mouthwateringly similar to the ones found in premium coffee shops albeit you won’t have to pay the big bucks that these shops charge for a glassful of iced coffee.


So let’s not squander any more time and delve straight into the recipe for a cup of delightful instant iced coffee.


  • Ground instant coffee
  • 4 tablespoons of water
  • Milk or creamer of your choice (in a cold state)


To begin with, you will need to heat up 4 tablespoons of water in a stovetop, microwave or through any other means.

Then pour the hot water into a large glass cup and follow that up by mixing in a large spoonful of ground instant coffee in the hot water.

You can use any of the ground instant coffee available in the market, just ensure that you keep stirring until all the coffee granules have completely dissolved in the hot water.

Now fill the majority of the glass cup with your preferred choice of milk or creamer, leaving some space at the top for the addition of ice cubes.

Keep in mind that the milk or creamer you use should have been kept in the refrigerator before so that it is in a cold state when you add it to the dissolved coffee.

You can opt for any of the milks, ranging from regular milk (whole/half-and-half/non-fat) to soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk depending on your taste.

However, you need to ensure that you add sugar or any other sweetener like honey, agave, stevia, etc. if you use plain unsweetened milk.

Also, if you want a specific type of coffee that is found in coffee shops, then you can buy the various types of creamers available in stores these days although it is recommended that you prepare your own homemade creamer using natural healthy ingredients, as the creamers available in the market contain a whole lot of harmful artificial ingredients.

Coming back to the procedure – Once you have filled the cup with the milk/creamer, it’s time to finish things off by adding a couple of ice cubes on the top.

That’s it, your own homemade iced coffee is ready to be enjoyed.



The simple pleasures in life like watching a beautiful sunset, making someone smile, sleeping under a cozy blanket on a freezing winter morning and more are the ones that truly make life worth living.

Sipping in a glassful of delicious iced coffee is also one such pleasure that can help you forget all the stress in your life and make you live in the moment.

Furthermore, this iced coffee recipe is also a great example of the fact that not all the good things in life require a lot of effort/money.

So just follow the simple steps mentioned above and sit back & enjoy the delicacy, that is iced coffee!
