Sweet Iced Coffee-No Calorie

It’s so hot here I don’t even want to talk about it. To combat the heat and to avoid increasing the waistline, I’ve started experimenting with several iced drinks that are either no calorie or low calorie. I’ve already shared with you my No Calorie Sweet Green Tea and Skinny Orange Julius.

Today, I’d like to share with you a No Calorie Sweetened Iced Coffee.


A few things that I’ve found out about Iced Coffee are:
1) If you brew coffee and then cool it down in the fridge, it will only be good for about 4 hours (often it may take that long to cool it down). After that it goes rancid. Ew.
2) If you rely on Starbucks to make you Iced Coffee, you will spend $3 or more and you have to request it unsweetened. Otherwise, they will slather on the syrup.
3) If you are like me and want just a cup of iced coffee here or there, you stress out over using a filter, waiting for the brew time, waiting for the coffee to cool down, etc.

What’s a girl to do?


Make her own. One sweet cup at a time, on a whim, at her own bidding.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your very own Sweetened Iced Coffee (it’s so easy, it’s silly):
2 TBS Decaf/Caffeinated NesCafe-more or less depending on how strong you like your coffee
8 drops Liquid Stevia-more or less depending on how sweet you like it


Fill a tall glass of water (heh) with the 2 TBS of NesCafe. Stir and add ice.


Add the 8 drops of Liquid Stevia.


Add milk depending on your taste.


Stick a cute straw in the glass and enjoy! I told you it was so simple, it is silly.

    I found this via Simple Living with Diane Balch. I linked in a retro steak dish. Have a super week.

    Brillant, I never thought to make it with instant and stevia is amazingly sweet. Perfect for iced coffee.

  7. Jeannie says:

    We in Phoenix, AZ keep a pitcher of cold brewed coffee in the ‘frig at all times and it is never rancid. We’ve been enjoying iced coffee that way for more than 30 years.

  8. Rebecca says:

    Great idea for a speedy cup of iced coffee-love the addition of stevia in your coffee, it certainly works for me! Thanks for sharing this with us on Seasonal Celebration! Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network x

  9. Lisa @ Flour Me With Love says:

    The coffee does get rancid if it sits in the fridge too long! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I can’t wait to try it. I love iced coffee!

    I use powdered stevia…didn’t even know there was a liquid. Thanks for the tip! I might need one of this for an afternoon pick me up. New puppy in our house who doesn’t sleep through the night yet…

  11. Holley says:

    This is a great idea. I’ve seen recipes that require blenders and mixers, and all kinds of extra effort for iced coffee. This is just so simple! Great idea! We’d love for you to link up with us for Tasty Tuesday over at aletteredlife.blogspot.com!

  12. Becca says:

    Thanks! I love iced coffee in the summer but hate paying $3-4 at Starbucks, plus I usually forget that half of it is whipped cream. :/ This is perfect. Found you through Tip Junkie

  13. Rose :: Fine Craft Guild .com says:

    oh man. this is what i need. did you see my caffe latte popsicles?!!! well, they are absolutely delicious, but i can not call them calorie-free… ha ha… maybe i should alternate with your cold coffee (as i am incidentally drinking right now… a popular thing, here in Italy in the summer), as well as with my minty zero cal – fizzy water drink, which i also posted on the blog… not so sure that all these drinks and popsicles are all so creative, but they sure are on my mind these days…

    have a good one!

    • Rebekah says:

      Number one-I am so jealous that you are in Italy and I am here in humble Oklahoma. Number two-I can’t wait to try out your recipe for caffe latte popsicles. My hubby will be thrilled! Number three-anything edible, simple and yummy in my book is a sign of creativity! Keep up the good work and thanks for stopping by, Rose!

    lol I LOVE iced coffee. I haven’t had luck with regular coffee iced down (tastes yucky) so I actually bought a coffee press to make iced coffee overnight. (Soak ground coffee 8+ hours in the fridge.) Your instant coffee saved me from a lack of coffee head ache when I forgot to ‘set up’ my iced coffee last night. Brilliant!!! It tasted just like my overnight version. Thanks. =)

    • Rebekah says:

      Yeah! I’m so glad that you liked the recipe. I hope you have many more enjoyable iced coffee moments ahead!
