As a busy working Mum some days I am exhausted! I love a nice iced coffee but I don’t always want to spend £3.50 and walk a mile to pick one up. As I’ve been working on a £100 grocery challenge recently I am trying my best to cut down on wasting money and therefore decided to use my Nutribullet to make a simple homemade iced coffee and this is my Nutribullet iced coffee recipe.
Nutribullet iced coffee recipe – what I used
I measured out two teaspoons of instant coffee, two teaspoons of granulated sweetener and I added around 50ml of hot water and a similar amount of cold water. I then gave it a stir with a spoon. As you can see I only stirred it for a few seconds so a few granules of the instant coffee were still present. I wasn’t bothered about this and it didn’t affect the finished Nutribullet iced coffee recipe.
I then blitzed it in my Nutribullet for a few seconds.
This is the mixture after it had been blended for a few seconds. It has a lovely airy consistency to it, and these bubbles are part of what makes my Nutribullet iced coffee recipe taste so nice in my opinion!

I then added cold milk + lots of ice to the mixture.
This is the mixture after I gave it another blast in my Nutribullet.
I got a glass and I ran a little Monin chocolate mint syrup around the edge. You could use any flavour syrup that you like and there are LOTS out there!
Nutribullet iced coffee recipe – the finished result!
This is the finished result of my Nutribullet iced coffee recipe. I am really pleased with the end result! While it doesn’t taste quite as luxurious as the one that I would usually buy in Starbucks it is around 1/3 of the calories. I am still perked up for the day too!
The flavour of this can definitely be enhanced by using a few of the other add ons that you can get in Starbucks. Like whipped cream! I was making this in a rush and didn’t want to add lots of additional calories. You could also used skimmed milk to cut calories further. Or a dairy free milk if you wanted to make it vegan friendly.
In total this Nutribullet iced coffee recipe takes about 2 or 3 minutes to make. You can just rinse the Nutribullet container clean afterwards in a matter of seconds too.
I love my Nutribullet and find it really versatile. I use it for more than just smoothies. I’ve now made milkshakes, smoothies, pasta sauces, herb dressings, salad dressings and more! It takes just seconds to blitz up a nice drink. Healthy or otherwise. I’ve made some AMAZING milkshakes with delicious goodies such as Ferrero Rocher and Mars!
