I’ve always loved iced coffee. No matter how hot or cold it might be you can’t beat a glass of fresh and delicious cold coffee. It’s the perfect pick me up for any occassion, but for a long time the only cold coffee I drank was from a coffee shop. As a keurig enthusiast, all of my at-home coffee was always hot and I could never figure out how to quickly turn my hot coffee into cold coffee.

Luckily, after trying mutltiple ways, I’ve found two foolproof ways to make that irresistible cold coffee. One way includes an instant coffee packets and the other is straight from the keurig. 

For more information on any of the ingredients below click on the products as listed. 

Starbucks Instant Iced Coffee



  1. Pour Starbucks Instant Iced Coffee Packet into a glass
  2. Fill up your cup about half way with water. You can choose whether you want to add more or less water depending on how strong you like you coffee. If you want it to be stronger add more water, & if you want a sweeter taste that isn’t as strong add less water.
  3. Next stir up the glass of water until the powder is mostly disolved. 
  4. Add in a little bit of ice, but leave enough room to add creamer.
  5. Finally add in your choice of creamer & drink up! 

I’ve found this is one of my favorite ways to make iced coffee at home. The instant iced coffee packets work so well and taste amazing. Using this product is also super simple, and you can add your little touch of flavor to make it your own. 

The first time I used it I honestly didn’t like it that much. I had followed what the packets instructions said and it didn’t taste near as good without the added creamer/milk. If you’re looking for a fast, simple, and yummy way to make coffee these packets are perfect. 

Keurig Iced Coffee



  1. Start by brewing your normal keurig coffee. I usually don’t do as much coffee as normal because we’ll be adding ice. 
  2. After your coffee is done, get a half a cup of ice & pour your hot coffee over the ice.
  3. While the ice cools your coffee, fill up your glass with a little bit of ice.
  4. Next pour your coffee back into the cup you plan on drinking out of. 
  5. Finally add creamer/milk and enjoy!

Using your keurig to make iced coffee is super easy. The hardest part is simply getting the coffee all cooled off. When I tried this for the first time, I was doubtful it would actually cool down my coffee. Turns out it did an amazing job! 

Iced coffee made by a keurig is actually way better than you’d expect! I love this recipe because I don’t have to wait on my coffee as it cools down in the fridge. Instead it cools immediately.

I hope you love these two easy at home ice coffee recipes! During the summer these are my go to morning coffee drinks, and I’m in love with them! If you enjoyed these recipes or would like to share it on Pinterest for later feel free to click on any of the photos or the thumbnail to share!
