[box type="shadow" ]Disclosure: this is a sponsored post. All thoughts, coffee and mass amounts of ice cream consumption in order to get this "just right" are purely my own. You're welcome![/box] It is summer y'all. It's been summer for weeks here in Orlando. I don't care what the calendar says. We have been consistently in the 90's and that just won't do for my hot cup of cafe con leche.
Summer means that I get to modify my coffee intake. Which means I get to do it up with International Delight's Iced Coffee line.
I grabbed a carton of the Caramel Macchiato Light which is only 100 calories! Woohoo! Yes, you totally can have this drink over ice. But, I like to have it a little differently. I like it cool but I don't like it watered down. Enter Mami's Chill Caramel Coffee Ala Mode.
[yumprint-recipe id='1']I've also tried this with coffee ice cream. Needless to say you can rock your favorite ice cream and pair it with your favorite Iced Coffee flavor. Whatever's your pleasure. I find this way I get a richer experience and I can combine a little dessert with a little In Delight for my afternoon coffee. I love pouring a little caramel up top to finish complete the yum.
Oh and you can see my awesome little mug that I made. PS: I am not an artist! I can get creative but this was a slight stretch for me because I don't paint/draw/write well. I decided to have the frog princess make one for father's day (because it's not father's day unless something is handmade, right?). I didn't want to be left out and so I decided to make my very own ID cup. I think I still need to tweak my method but here's what I got:
- White mug
- Colored sharpies
- Wash the mug and clean it with alcohol (for prints and such)
- Paint it to your hearts' content
- Put the mug in the oven & turn it on to 400 degrees
- preheat it (with the mug inside)
- once it preheats, set the timer for 45 minutes
I took my mug out before the time and as you can see, it got a little messed up because of it. I plan on repainting and throwing it back into the oven with no fear that these will blow up.
What do you think? Will you be trying the recipe and making your own summer mug?
