Vanilla Iced Coffee

Vanilla Iced Coffee

This is a simple, easy, cost effective recipe for great tasting vanilla iced coffee.  I prefer to make it myself rather than buying it.  When I make it myself, I know what ingredients are going in and I can sweeten it the way I like it.  

Simple Syrup Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Other Ingredients

  • 1 cup coffee, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream


  • Make the simple syrup by combining sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Stir the mixture continuously stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool completely and stir in vanilla extract; set aside.
  • Serve coffee over ice with heavy cream and simple syrup, to taste.
  • Store remaining simple syrup in the refrigerator.


  • Add cinnamon to the syrup for a cinnamon dolce flavored coffee.
