I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Iced coffee is one of my favorite drinks in the summer. I love coffee all year, in any form, but during the hot weather, iced coffee is extra refreshing. Stopping at a coffeehouse isn't something my wallet likes very much, so I like to make iced coffee concoctions from home.
Folgers® Iced Café Iced Coffee Drink Concentrates
New Folgers® Iced Café Coffee Drink Concentrates are a wonderful option for at-home creations. These little 1.62 fl. oz. squeeze bottles contain 100% coffee extract, sweetener, and flavor enhancers, to help you create a delicious beverage from anywhere. They are made with only five ingredients, with no sugar or preservatives. The bottles have a cap that closes tightly, making them portable. All you need to do is add milk and ice, and you are all set.
There are four yummy flavors to choose from – Original Latte, Vanilla Latte, Caramel Macchiato and Hazelnut Latte. Add two squeezes of whichever flavor you are in the mood for to 8 ounces of cold milk. (One squeeze = 1 tsp) Add ice and enjoy. At an SRP of $4.99 per bottle, it's a lot nicer on the budget than daily coffeehouse beverages.
Of course, you don't need to do anything special to the iced coffee because it's already delicious. But, I decided to have a little fun with it. I made some frozen yogurt to make an iced coffee float.
Easy Frozen Yogurt Recipe
- 3 cups Greek yogurt
- 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup agave
Stir everything together and add to an ice cream maker. Mine took under the recommended churning time. It was only about 18 minutes.
I made some Folgers® Original Latte as directed – two squeezes to 8oz of milk. Then I swirled some frozen yogurt into a mug and poured the iced coffee on top. It was like a tasty coffee shake or frappuccino.
I also created a twist on a sundae. I used the frozen yogurt, but this time added Hazelnut Latte to about 1/2 cup of milk. It was more concentrated and flavorful and perfect to use as a topping. I poured it over my frozen yogurt and topped with chocolate sprinkles. Sundae deliciousness.
