Quick & easy iced coffee at home {Plus a giveaway!}

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


Oh coffee, how I love thee. I can’t even begin to describe my love for coffee, and I really don’t think I could make it through these long, hot, summer days without my daily treat: iced coffee. Some days I really crave my favorite iced beverage, but rounding up three kids for a hot car ride to the local coffee stand doesn’t always sound fun. Especially if it’s 1pm, you’re still in your pajamas, and the baby is napping. No matter how badly you need that fuel to power-clean and get these dishes and laundry done, you can’t leave the house (you don’t wake a sleeping baby, even for coffee). Oh, the joys of motherhood!


Fortunately, I found a solution for my iced coffee addiction craving: Folgers Iced Café. These adorably small little bottles of iced coffee goodness are made with 100% coffee extract and contain only 5 ingredients (and no sugar or preservatives!) You just add 2 squeezes of this stuff to 8oz of cold milk, stir, add ice, and enjoy! In just a few seconds you can have your own delicious iced coffee at home, PJs, sleeping baby, and all. I almost can’t think of anything better!


These conveniently portable 1.62 oz squeeze bottles of Folgers Iced Café come in 4 yummy flavors: Original Latte, Caramel Macchiato, Vanilla Latte, and Hazelnut Latte. I love them all, but if I had to choose a favorite I’d say it’s a toss up between Vanilla Latte & Caramel Macchiato. Sometimes I even mix them together. You can totally customize the flavors to create your favorite iced coffee deliciousness. I love that the bottles are small enough to fit in my purse (or diaper bag) and require no refrigeration, so I can take these babies with me wherever I go. But let’s be honest- I’m usually drinking it at home, next to my computer while I try to get some blog work done. It’s the perfect little afternoon pick-me-up!
