Cold Brew Coffee

Cold Brew Coffee

Do you like Cold Brew? Are you buying it all the time? Well, I got to tell you that I stopped buying coffee all together in the coffee shops unless I am meeting a friend.

I do not see a point at all when I can make coffee just the way I like it. Plus, I save a few bucks along the way. I love a strong, dark roast coffee so sometimes I really cannot get that taste especially if I get it in the most popular cafes.

Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

Yes, some of them do surprise me every now and then, but not often. I am very picky when it comes to coffee.

Since my daughter and I only drink coffee in our household, I make one batch for two of us. Of course, she does not drink it every single day, so I consume her serving as well. I love making a smaller amount so that way we always have freshly made brew.

Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

Add coffee in the French Press, then add filtered COLD water. Yes, you can add hot water, however, that is when the coffee starts to bloom and release different flavor, even aroma. So when you pour cold water, you will get the lower acidity and some flavor compounds do not come through via cold brewing, which gives it a smoother taste.

Cold Brew Coffee

At first add a bit of water, like a splash, then mix to make coffee wet, then add the rest. Stir well again! Place the top on but do not push all the way down.

Cold Brew Coffee

We need to allow the coffee to brew from 12 to 24 hours in the fridge. This is crucial for your cold brew. If you like it stronger wait for 24 hours.

Cold Brew Coffee

When the time comes to consume it, push the filter down and pour it into your glass, preferably over the ice. You may add sweetener and cream, or perhaps enjoy it just the way it is.

Red Rooibos Iced Tea

Red Rooibos Iced Tea

Summer is not over yet so I have decided to share one more amazingly delicious, nutritious and refreshing beverage — Red Rooibos Iced Tea. This tea was introduced to me by Dale of The Daley Plate on Instagram. She got the blog now as well so I will link it here.  I just love this girl so much. She is so inspiring and honest.

Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Do you like Matcha? I just love Matcha Lattes, cold or hot. I wanted to post this recipe for a long time. I even bought these beige (very Instagram hip) cups for this to take pictures for Matcha Latte… I know what you are thinking, “that’s totally unnecessary”, but I just couldn’t help myself. Sometimes I get stuff just for those purposes. My shelves are filled with unnecessary props, but again, I can’t help myself. It’s my job and I never know what I will need. 

 

So the other day I went shopping with my girl, Anna, who by the way loves Starbucks double chocolate chip frappe. – Nothing to do with this gem, but I just had to include that sentence for some reason. Anyhow, she suggested Starbucks just to cool off and chill for a moment. I rarely get coffee out; I get it either when I am busy and on the road or if I go out with a friend. I just like making my own coffee at home.

 

I wasn’t craving coffee so naturally, I would get something like matcha frappe or iced latte, which is super easy to make at home, as you can tell. I made a little video with my iPhone how I personally like my Matcha Latte. Since I had this amazingly nutritious Moringa powder I added that as well. I just love it! By the way, this post totally came randomly.

I just finished editing my video which I posted on Youtube. I know… it is shocking! I took a little over a year off from Youtube so this is technically my first video after that long break. Anyhow, I hope you guys like itYou can watch it HERE (my Youtube channel) 

LUNA

Now I am completing this post with two of my fur babies who just love walking accross my laptop keyboard especialy when I type. I don’t know if you know, but we have two kitties. Luna, a year old tabby, and Nala, 4-month-old Chantilly Tiffany. 

I just love them to pieces… all of us loved them but they only listen to me. Well, I feed them and clean their poop after-all hahaha Jokes on the side, I guess I am here all the time so I have the privilege to do all that for my queens. 

NALA

 

So to cut the story short, I hope you guys make this delicious iced latte. It is one my favorites cold or warm, during summer or winter. Just by replacing cold milk you can totally add warm milk and make a nice hot beverage during those cold winter days. 

Hey if you try this recipe or any other recipe from my blog please share with me on Instagram. Make sure to tag me @sandraseasycooking using hashtag #sandrasasycooking I would love to see all your delicious creations and share with my readers as well. Thanks!!! <3

Kale, Banana and Pineapple Smoothie

Kale, Banana and Pineapple Smoothie

Strawberry, Blackberry Banana & Pineapple Smoothie

This simple smoothie is full of amazing beneficial health properties. It’s a perfect breakfast, snack or after workout beverage.

Do you like pure fruit smoothies or you always hide veggies in? Well, I do it both ways. Most of the time I’d hide powerful greens in there.

However, sometimes I just need to kill that sweet tooth craving when is barking at me, so what’s the best way to intake some of the sugars than unprocessed, healthy fruit.

It is certainly better for you than cookies or any other sweet junk food, so one cup of this kills my sweet tooth craving and to be honest I don’t feel guilty afterward.

It’s sweet, of course, but at the same time refreshing and delightful to drink in the morning or as your afternoon sweet treat, to kind of pick you up.

As you all know, you can also freeze it and have a delicious pop in a couple of hours.  With hot summer approaching, I imagine you would love pops with this flavor. By the way, I won a recipe REBOOT contest on Kitchen bowl.

With that being said, I won beautiful Blendtec® Classic 575 Blender in Caribbean Blue color. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
