There’s a new barista in town

Do you remember when I admitted that I have a coffee addiction?  No, well I do.

Do you remember my goals for the New Year? Maybe, maybe not…..

Well one of them was to save money.  Which to most people this would read as putting more money into a savings account.  Which is part of the plan.

To some people this would mean that I would give up certain things that I spend money on.  Like eating out.  Which I rarely do, but that is the course I am trying to take with certain addictions in my life.

Like my addiction to coffee…….

and the fact that my addiction is slightly expensive……

but I was fortunate enough to win a lovely giveaway from ….. at fairy healthy life, this included several bags of Starbuck’s brand iced coffee beans.

That left me with the greatest of opportunities….the ability to brew my own iced coffees.

Oh happy, happy, joy, joy!!

Yes people I am using half & half.  No I do not care.  I mean clean eating is all about using whole foods and real products.  You will find no artificial anything here.  Just good ol’ milk & cream!

This can only mean one thing……

I am one step closer to checking an item off of my  wish list 🙂

If you too would like to join me on my journey it is simple.  Go purchase a bag of coffee of your choice.  Preferably one that is meant for iced brew, but trust me I have used regular coffees before and they work just as fabulous.  The main thing is to use a good roast!  Then you simply brew an entire pot.  Yep, that’s right I said an entire pot.  Allow the coffee to cool after you brew it, pour into a container and place in the fridge.  Now you will have iced coffee available to you for the entire week, you will only need to add cream and/or sweetener…..oh and you can put that five dollar bill back into your wallet 🙂

Happy brewing friends!
