All You Need To Know About Iced Coffee πŸ₯€ // may contain a certain novel reveal! βœ¨

Hey popcorns 🍿

Is it just me who feels so uninspired to post lately?! As soon as I sit down to draft this post the words just don’t come out right and then something else needs doing and online school is piling up, gosh life is so darn stressful lately! πŸ˜‚

It all started on the Tuesday when my 4 year old cat went missing, I was devastated and honestly I have no idea how I kept it together. We didn’t find him for 12 hours, thank gosh our other cat Smudge didn’t escape too! Worst 12 hours of my whole existence 😒 When we found him I was so happy I nearly started crying, just the thought of him all alone at night was breaking my heart into a gazillion pieces πŸ’”

Also online school has finished up and now I have a week off, so hoping to be online a lot more and hopefully starting the novel chapters and posting more! πŸ’•

Now enough of my extremely stressful and emotional week, let’s get on with all things iced coffee! *slurps iced coffee*

Small tiny disclaimer to keep you reading: the short story from my 15 DWC I will be continuing with will be revealed at the end of this post!

Now as the famous trilogy once said, let the games (review and recipe) begin! πŸ˜‚

Iced coffee is the perfect summer, autumn, winter and spring drink! You can literally drink it any time, and it’s such a fast drink to make. I’m not going to lie to you, it isn’t the healthiest of drinks but it is important to treat yourself, and when I’m looking for a pick-me up I always make a cup of this delicious drink!

Just wanted to say I use decaf coffee because I’m caffeine intolerant but it tastes so good! Caffeine is honestly pretty bad for your body and brain, so I recommend using decaf, but it is totally up to you! πŸ₯€

Now first of all I’d like to clarify the difference between whipped and iced coffee, it drives me crazy when people in them up because they’re so different! Iced coffee is when you mix all the ingredients into a foam-textured syrup, whipped coffee is when you mix the ingredients into a yoghurt texture and pour on top of the milk! As you can see I’m very passionate about all things iced coffee…

Nw follow below the ingredients you’ll need to make Amber’s Iced Coffee I totally didn’t just name my iced coffee after myself and the recipe to make your own heaven in a cup!

✰ I N G R E D I E N T S ✰

– THIS RECIPE SERVES ONE –

– 1 tablespoon of coffee (granules or powdered)

– 1 tablespoon of sugar

– Pinch of cinnamon powder (optional but worth it!)

– 2 tablespoons of water

– Glass of milk

✰ R E C I P E ✰

1. Add coffee, sugar and the cinnamon powder (if you’re including it) to a medium sized bowl.

2. Pour the measurement of water into the dry ingredients, if it looks already too much after adding 1 tablespoon then don’t add a second.

3. Electric whisk or manual whisk into a foamy syrup, if you’re aiming for whipped coffee (see above) then carry on whisking into a yoghurt texture. If it isn’t thickening, add more water!

4. Now take out your glass and pour the syrup into the bottom of it, then pour the milk on top of the syrup to fill the glass until you are happy it’s the contents.

5. Grab a spoon and stir the syrup in until the milk has turned a creamy brown type of colour, froth on the top is totally normal! I tend to serve with ice and drink with a straw, but it’s totally up to you! If you want to keep it aesthetic you could even sprinkle some cinnamon on top.

This was my finished product, my iced coffees always look different each time, but taste just as good! πŸ˜‹

The novel I will continuing with is *drumroll please* EMPOWERING KNOWLEDGE (fiction in fiction) which will be called Knowledge Is Power and I honestly want to create a cover for the book so if anyone knows someone who knows someone who could create me a book cover, I would be so thankful if you could let me know!

A chapter of KIP will be released every Friday, I’m going to work my ass off to stick to this schedule so do stay tuned every Friday for my post! I will also post one extra post each week that isn’t related to novel chapters so that’s AWESOME and honestly so exciting!! πŸ˜†

Hopefully you enjoyed earning all about my special iced NOT WHIPPED coffee, and I hope you are all inspired to make yourself a cup of iced coffee, I totally recommend it and please let me know in the comments if you have any questions or plan on making a cup πŸ’•

Have you made iced/ whipped coffee before? Are you interested in making a cup? Do you like caffeine?

That’s a wrap ☺️

  1. Im glad you found your cat, it’s so scary when they disappear. I couldn’t find mine one day then I spotted her whilst looking out the window – she was pacing back and forth in someone’s shed as she’d got shut in there. She actually goes there so often that they’ve put a bed in there for her πŸ˜‚
    Anyway I really look forward to reading KIP and think your iced coffee recipe sounds lovely. I don’t drink much coffee tbh as I find it too strong but I have decided I like iced ones lately and also mocha πŸ˜‚

    1. Thank you so much, it is and it’s honestly so upsetting 😭 Oh that’s so lucky, the cat of min that went missing was a house cat so he’s not even meant to be outside! Your neighbours sound lovely and awh lucky cat!! πŸ’•
      Thank you so much, KIP is a… work in progress!! Thank you so much, coffee is strong but I just love the flavour of it, I love like really strong flavours that are kinda tart!! Mochas are the best drink, they are delicious, I made an iced (I’m obsessed) mocha the other day an it was amazing!! πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading lovely 😊

      1. Aww that’s awful, I’m so glad you got him back πŸ’• and yes she’s spoilt. She’s the only cat that they like using it πŸ˜‚
        Well good luck with it ☺️
        That’s great, I always feel like the odd one out for not being more into coffee πŸ™ˆ but like I said I like it more than I used to. Ooh sounds lovely 😍

        1. Yes, me too! Aww πŸ’“ Thank you! Don’t worry I’m pretty sure coffee is quite an American thing (I have no idea if your American) but I am more of a tea sorta gal myself ☺️ Thanks!

          1. That’s true, you do see it in American books & shows a lot. And I’m English ☺️ and yeah same, I love tea. I literally don’t think I could go a day without it πŸ˜‚

            1. True that! Aw that’s amazing, me too πŸ₯° Haha me neither, tea is so good and honestly so calming πŸ™‚ I don’t know if it’s making the tea that calms me down too though πŸ˜‚

  2. Awww, I’m so sorry you lost your cat (but glad you found him)! I can imagine what that feels like because my dog is also the love of my life. I’m sure it was quite stressful but, maybe he learned his lesson not leave πŸ˜‰

  3. WOW this recipe is really cool! I don’t have coffee much at all haha but if I do I’ll try this πŸ˜‰
    Okay am I the only one who thought that you would write Iced Coffee? Didn’t you have a story called that??? AM I GOING INSANE WHAT. Because….. you know….. it would be SUPER cool and punny hahaha. But I still lurve “Knowledge is Power”!

    1. Thank you so much! Yes I 100% recommend it ✨
      Yes I had a story called Iced Mochas!! Honestly if KIP doesn’t work out it will either be the dystopian story or Iced Mochas :)) YOU ARE NOT GOING INSANE!! Haha gotta love a good pun πŸ˜‚

  4. Awww Amber I’m so sorry about your cat but I’m so glad you found them otherwise that would have been awful 😣
    Can’t wait to hear your writing again! πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. Tell me about it, it was so upsetting but I’m so happy to have him back πŸ’• Thank you so much for commenting El! Ooo yay hope you are doing okay, over your recent post!! πŸ™‚

  5. Thank God you found your cat!πŸ’•β™₯️ and wow your coffee watered my mouth, but given the fact that I rarely give kitchen a visit, I’ll have to please myself by just looking at it πŸ˜‚
    P.S YAYYYY I’M SUPER EXCITED FOR YOUR NOVEL β™‘

    1. I know right, super scary! ☹️ Aw I’m glad you thought it looked good πŸ’• Haha! Don’t worry it’s pretty quick and easy to make and I think it will make entering the kitchen worth it πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
      AWW YAYY! πŸ’• Thank you so much Penny!!

  6. So happy that you found your cat!! 🐈 Sounds like he went on an adventure πŸŒπŸ˜‚ Bet he will be staying put at home now as he’s got the wanderlust bug out of his system.

    Hmmm I wonder if I could try this by really using a lot of soya milk (which will hopefully allow it to come out the same πŸ™Œ) alongside a small amount of decaf as I really want to try it! πŸ€” I might be able to make it work and not end up with a migraine as I’m craving coffee 😭 probably not worth the risk (as much as that craving is trying to convince me otherwise πŸ˜‚) but a girl can dream!

    Sooo excited about your novel!! I remember reading it and thinking fiction within fiction is such an interesting concept and then I lost a couple of days reimagining my favourite books in that style πŸ˜‚βœ¨ actually that would make a good blog post or fanfiction!? 😲 Great post as always! Take care πŸ’•

    1. Me too!! It was so stressful and just brought an onslaught of emotions that I’ve not had to deal with so much in quarantine!! Haha yes, he’s a little adventurer 🌎

      I know a lot of people who use organic milks like soya milk, almond milk etc. And I think it works out pretty good! I use decaf and it works, and tastes just as good (I think) πŸ˜‚ Oh no I hope you don’t get a migraine if you drink it, ah this sure does knock a coffee craving right on the head! πŸ˜‹

      Eee me too!! πŸ’• That is so awesome, I’m glad your happy with the results and oh my gosh yes you should go about that!! I’d love to read that 😊 Great idea, thank you so much and take care too x

  7. Ahhh, that iced coffee looks so good, and considering that I actually really hate the taste of coffee (yes, please don’t hurt me), that’s saying a lot! Literally the only time I like coffee is when I put the tiniest pinch of it into like a full glass of milk, and that’s basically just milk hahahaha!
    And I’m so excited for all the chapters of Knowledge is Power! It’s so cool that the one you’re writing about is the most unique concept of all, and I’m really interested to see how this pans out!! All the best! Also really glad to hear that you’re going to be blogging more, because I definitely missed reading your posts!
    Love to you! ❀

    1. It tastes better than it looks haha πŸ˜‚ Don’t worry, I preach non-violence so no hurt coming from me, coffee really is a love it or hate it sorta thing! Slightly coffee-tainted milk: I love it πŸ’• I’m pretty sure my mum enjoys putting coffee in hot milk haha! I’m so excited to start writing the chapters, I have a lot of time on my hands at the mo so hoping to do a heck of a lot of drafting 🀭 Me too, it really is one heck of a unique concept, and has a lot of potential 😊
      Aw I have actually have so many post ideas coming to me but so many awards to do too, I swear it feels by the time I’ve posted them there’s more πŸ˜‚ I don’t know enough bloggers to nominate for each different award!!
      Sending love right back to you ☺️

  8. Oh, I’m so sorry about your cat, thank goodness u found him. My cat always goes missing and I go dead with worry, but she always comes back. I totally understand you. Me loves my cat=my cat=a cat=I love all cats.

    1. Awh me too! Yes thank gosh! Yes especially because my cat is a house cat so he’s not really meant to be outside aha! Aww I love that, I love all cats too πŸ’• Thank you for reading and commenting!! πŸ™‚
