Normally, this site is mainly dedicated to all things real-estate related, it is also about living better in your home as well. And in our opinion: coffee helps you live better. 🙂
I struggle with portions and wasting food. I seem to be making the same amount of coffee in winter months as well as the summertime. Here in Central California, it’s already in the 80s by 7:30 in the morning. We don’t mess around with summer, man!
So after a couple of cups of start-my-day java, I start to get sweaty and pitted. Yuck. I’m over being hot before the day begins. You’d think I would have figured out how to make a half a pot by now, but I guess I am just optimistic about how much I will drink so I continually make a full pot. LOL!
But I’ve discovered something fun to do with the leftover coffee in the pot: make coffee cubes!!!
Go Old School.
All you need is an ice tray! (or if you’re like me, four!) If you don’t have an old-school ice tray, just run to the Dollar Tree or hop onto Amazon and grab a 2-pack of them here.
When you have leftover coffee, fill up the tray and freeze it. When it’s done, pop those little bad boys into a Ziplock bag to have on hand for iced coffees or protein shakes…whatever suits your fancy. Instead of adding regular ol’ ice cubes to your shakes, add those coffee cubes instead. The little hint of coffee flavor that comes through tastes delish!
Frappa Lappa Anyone?
It easily can becomes an awesome frappa-lappa coffee drink you get at Starbuck for FREE in your own home! Yes!! That’s our favorite part, right? F-R-E-E!
If you’re a step-by-step lover, here’s the breakdown:
~pour leftover coffee into empty ice cube tray
~put tray into freezer
~Once frozen, use the coffee cubes in whatever way you would use regular ice and get the added coffee flavor.
That’s it for this week!
