Spiced + Iced Coffee

It’s a dreary day in Dallas, but I thought I’d share this recipe for spiced cold brew coffee. It’s got hints of cinnamon, to really ramp up that almost-Autumn feeling. For those of you that aren’t familiar with cold brew, it’s iced coffee that has been ‘brewed’ overnight in cold water. It’s way more rich and bold than iced coffee that is made from cooled-down hot coffee.
If you don’t mind waiting for your coffee, definitely try this recipe out. The cinnamon and sugar in it brings out the feeling of autumn coziness. And I like how you don’t have to add much sweetener because it’s already got a hint of sugar in it. Enjoy!

I used skim for mine, but I definitely wish I had whole milk on hand!
