Iced Coffee Soda

Flavored sodas are the new cupcake – they’re super IN right now. Let’s jump on the trendwagon with an Iced Coffee Soda!

Iced Coffee Soda - only 3 ingredients! Make your own soda using your favorite iced coffee using this easy recipe!

Before we talk about how I’ve ditched the diet soda and have moved onto coffee soda, I want to talk about TV shows, specifically Friday Night Lights.

Oh. My. Gosh. Where has this show been all my life? (Sitting in my Netflix queue waiting for me to watch it, obvi.) It’s my new Scandal; Mel and I are totally binge watching it this summer. The biggest problem is that we can’t stay awake long enough to watch more than 1 show each night. I want to watch them all and I want to watch them all this minute!

Mel likes it because it’s football. I mean, it’s a show made for him. I look over and he’s got this silly grin on his face every time Coach makes them do drills. When the Coach is screaming at them in the locker room I say, “Wow, this is really intense, they can’t actually be like that!” and he says, “yes, it really is like that” and I say, “I’m glad Jordan’s a girl.”

(Not that girls can’t play football but she’s totally not interested.)

Also, watching that show gives me mild panic attacks about high school. Do kids really do all that…stuff…all the time? I mean…is that for TV or is it real life?

Maybe I need to add vodka to my Iced Coffee Soda. That’ll get me through.

Iced Coffee Soda is so good with International Delight Iced Coffee! Only 3 ingredients!

I’ve mentioned before how much I love International Delight Iced Coffee. Over the last few months I’ve paired a glass with muffins and cookies. This month I’m turning my favorite iced coffee into my favorite indulgence: SODA!

Some days I get to the afternoon and I just NEED a soda. I try not to drink too much of it but sometimes my body wants the bubbles, and that’s where this iced coffee soda comes in. I also need a pick-me-up in the afternoons and that’s normally when I really want my third cup of coffee.

So the day I can combine my favorite iced coffee and my favorite soda? Is the best day ever!

 

Only 3 ingredients in this easy Iced Coffee Soda recipe!

With only 3 ingredients, this soda is probably the easiest drink you’ll ever make. You can even skip the chocolate sauce if you’re going for a more “healthy” afternoon drink, but why would you skip that? Next time I make these I’m going to use my own homemade chocolate sauce – that stuff was like liquid fudge!

Drizzle the chocolate in the glass, then add your favorite flavor International Delight Iced Coffee (I love the light versions) and seltzer water or club soda. You can also use sparkling water in a pinch but the seltzer and club soda have more bubbles and are more soda-like. (You find both of those in the alcohol aisle.)

I top mine with whipped cream and more chocolate because, well, this IS me we’re talking about. More chocolate > less chocolate.

 

 

3 ingredient Iced Coffee Soda - an easy and fast recipe for a hot summer afternoon!

My favorite time of day to enjoy this iced coffee soda is in the afternoon when it’s hot and I’m tired and want to sit on the couch and just be a vegetable for a few minutes. I just wish I could watch Friday Night Lights during my break; I’m trying to be good and leave the binge watching for when Mel is there to watch it with me.

(Although I did tell him that if he has to travel all bets are off. He’ll be a season behind when he gets back!)

  1. Friday night lights is on my list to watch…I’ve heard great things about it! And this iced coffee looks delicious. Sounds like the perfect drink to start your day off with or to relax at night. Pinned!

  2. In summer I would very likely choose this soda for dessert!

  3. My students got me into Friday Night Lights a couple of years back. It’s so good! It would be especially good with iced coffee soda, though. That SHOULD be the new cupcake. Cupcakes are so 2010.
    Netflix bingeing is probably my favorite activity right now. I was sitting in a boring meeting all day yesterday fantasizing about going home and watching endless TV. Sigh.

  4. Gimme that!!!  : )

  5. When I was a kid, I used to love soda. I’ve definitely moved away from it as an adult, but do love seltzer water. This coffee is a PERFECT way to get the bubbles I’m craving without having a ton of sugar. I totally love your amaretto suggestion, Dorothy! Amaretto is my favorite. 😀

  6. I’ve actually never watched Friday Night Lights, but the hubs and I are seriously looking for a new show! SO I might just gave to check ‘er out.
    BUT, I will definitely be checking out this iced coffee soda goodness…perhaps RIGHT NOW instead of my morning cuppa! Pinned!

  7. This looks too good to be true! I’d probably freeze these into ice pops because that’s how I roll. 🙂

  8. It’s pretty dangerous I can make this at home! It’s like the best of all worlds in one…coffee, whipped cream, chocolate…yes 🙂

  9. I’ll have to check out Friday Night Lights and this coffee soda looks so delicious!

  10. Holy cow this is sensational!  Come to mama!!

  11. This looks AMAZING. Two of my favorite things paired together, you can’t really go wrong! I try not to have too much soda but I agree, sometimes you just need it. Especially while having pizza 🙂

  12. Now THIS is an iced coffee I can get behind! YUM!

  13. Look pretty darn amazing to me! The perfect afternoon pick-me-up!

  14. I’m not even a coffee drinker, and I want this! Looks amazing. Also? Adding Friday Night Lights to the queue…always looking for new shows to watch, since so many of the ones we already do have completely jumped the shark. 

  15. I’ve never seen Friday Night Lights but it sounds like something hubs and I can watch together. We’ve looking for a new series. And this coffee soda is drool-worthy! I need to make my coffee like this everyday!

  16. Definitely can’t leave out the chocolate sauce! What a perfect afternoon pick-me-up!

  17. I’ve heard great things about Friday Night Lights but still haven’t had a chance to watch it. This ice coffee soda looks like the ultimate treat to relax with while catching up on our shows. It looks beyond amazing!

  18. This looks heavenly. I wish International Delights would make a decaf. iced coffee. For health reasons I cannot have caffeine. Bummer. I will make these for my lucky friends.

  19. Mind blown right now. You truly are the mash up queen! Haha if you’ve been binge watching Netflix, I’ve been binge reading cookbooks and this week, it’s yours and I’m HOOKED. But seriously, soda and coffee, where have you been all my life? I cannot wait to try this, it’s too simple and way too amazing looking not to! Pinned!

  20. I don’t like coffee, but that Lemon Pie Milkshake caught my eye!!! Where has THAT been?  We loved Friday Night Lights, and miss it, but at least now we have Connie Britton (sp?) on ” Nashville” – also a very good show!  Right now we are catching up on all our Shark Week DVR programs.

  21. Haha, clearly I have another show to add to my To Watch list! This Iced Coffee Soda is so out of this world — just one more way to get my caffeine fix!

  22. Oh, I totally need a new show to binge on, and I’ve heard only good things about Friday Night Lights. I’ve been watching the new season of True Detective (ehhhh), and one of the actors on there is from FNL. No matter what, any TV binge needs a treat like this drink. I’m a coffee fanatic, so this is really speaking to me 🙂

  23. Iced coffee soda?  What a fantastic idea.  I need this in my life soon.  Because I’m always wanting more coffee mid-afternoon too!

  24. I have never watched Friday Night Lights, but clearly that needs t happen and so does this this iced coffee soda.

  25. WOAH!  Now that is one gorgeous looking drink!  I love the idea of iced coffee and bubbles…and of course chocolate sauce!  This is the most amazing summer drink for sure!

  26. Coffee soda is my little secret to staying alive in the summer afternoons. Now my secret is out! LOVE that you used International Delight- they are my favorite iced coffee to enjoy!! And ummmm let’s be real here more chocolate is WAY > than less chocolate. HA!

  27. We LOVED Friday Night Lights in such a major way! That and Parenthood. So sad they both had to end…..I probably need one of these sodas to make me feel better about life!!!

  28. This looks so amazing! And I’m adding FNL to my list — you know, the list of SOMEDAY I WILL WATCH THIS AND I MEAN IT shows. LOL

  29. Dorothy, this looks FABULOUS. I need to find that iced coffee…I have some seltzer in my fridge. Perfect!
