Craving Iced Coffee? Healthy Frozen Drink Recipes

This is probably one of the quickest ways to get a sweet treat and your coffee fix while you are at it. When I worked as a Hooters girl while still studying at university, I absolutely loved working behind the bar. Why? Because I could wear my black uniform if I bartended, which made me look thinner, and also because I had access to the coffee machine, ice, and blender. 

The thing I made the most often was iced coffee. All I did was make a cup of coffee, add sweetener and milk, and put it in a blender with ice. The result was a delicious and refreshing iced coffee. The iced coffee was so good that some of the other Hooters girls started asking me for them. I guess you could say that I became an iced coffee dealer. I probably should not have been doing it, but the iced coffees sure were delicious.

This could be cheaper than buying iced coffee at a coffee shop. You can experiment and try to recreate healthier versions of the ones in the store that you like. You can be creative.
