Homemade Iced Coffee
- 1/3 cup of ground coffee (decaf or caffeinated as desired)
- 2 cups cold filtered water (or from tap)
- 2 tablespoons fat free or "light" flavored creamer (like vanilla) or 4 tablespoons low-fat milk or fat-free half and half
- Add about 1/3 cup of ground coffee and 2 cups of cold water into the French press and let it sit overnight or all day.
- Push the top down on the French press to separate the coffee from the grounds and pour 1 cup of the coffee into each tall glass.
