Cocoa-Coconut Coffee Cooler

Cocoa-Coconut Coffee Cooler
Iced coffee is a refreshing summertime drink. Add some cocoa, coconut milk, vanilla extract, half-and-half to your coffee and you have yourself a delicious and thirst quenching hot weather beverage.  This recipe makes about 8 cups and is easy and quick to make. The preparation time is about 15 minutes.  Chilling time is 1 to 24 hours.  "Southern Living" magazine describes this beverage as  being almost dessert.  If you want a more festive sipper, they suggest stirring in 1 cup of dark rum or bourbon.

  3. Hi Geraldine!

    I LOVE chicory coffee! I can just imagine how delicious this cooler would be. I must find some online because there isn't any around here. I'm sure you could use regular coffee but I bet it just wouldn't be the same.

    Thank you so much for sharing...

  4. Water and water foods are trump card for the weight loss. If you drink 3 glasses of water at morning with empty stomach, you can easily control your weight because drinking water with the empty stomach helps a lot to burn the fat. Water foods such as green tea, coffee, citrus fruits juices, and green vegetables soups are also excellent for the weight loss. I know something about this same information, to know you can click here or νisit mу website .
