Things You Will Need:

Watch It:

Make It:

Start off by making coffee ice cubes in advance, I normally make them the night before so I can wake up and make this amazing coffee drink.

Brew 3 cups of coffee and add 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Stir until blended and pour into ice cube tray, let stand in freezer overnight. As they melt in your hot coffee, they release swirls of cinnamon and sugar reminiscent of a snickerdoodle cookie.

Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Ice Cube Freezing Overnight: 1 day
Total Time: 1 day 10 minutes

Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Coffee is loaded with cinnamon and hints of brown sugar, topped off with cool cinnamon and sugar coffee ice cubes. Tastes similar to a snickerdoodle. It makes for such a delicious treat!


  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup espresso or strong brewed coffee, hot


  1. Pour the milk into your coffee mug, add the sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir well.
  2. Heat the milk in the microwave for about 30 seconds in a coffee mug.
  3. Pour coffee or espresso into a mug, then pour the warm milk into the mug with the espresso. Spoon out any remaining foamy milk if left and set aside, let cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Take the ice cube tray out of the freezer and fill a tall glass with the premade coffee ice cubes. You can just use regular ice.
  5. Pour coffee over ice cubes and add more cold milk if desired. 
  6. As an added treat you can also put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth if you prefer your ice crushed.
  7. As an option, you can add whipped cream, chocolate syrup or chocolate shavings.


Make sure to prepare the coffee ice cubes overnight. That way, it takes you less time to prepare your delicious iced coffee. If you don't have the coffee ice cubes, you will have to wait a few hours to enjoy it. I avoid this by making a couple of trays and having them at the ready for whenever the craving hits! It's an easy excuse to whip something a little fancy for guests when they come a callin'. You can always opt out and use regular ice cubes, no worries there!
