I love coffee. More like I NEED my coffee. I need it to function in the morning, as a pick-me-up in the afternoon, and as a way to wind in the evening and stay awake for a few more hours. That being said, I won’t drink just any old coffee. I prefer buying brands like Caribou Coffee that doesn’t have artificial ingredients and fake stuff in it. I have finally found an iced coffee that can meet all my coffee needs! Caribou Iced Coffee has hit the stores and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve partnered with Caribou Coffee to share my 3 favorite ways to enjoy iced coffee this summer.
During the hot summer months, I prefer to drink iced coffee. It’s such a refreshing pick-me-up. I’m not one to frequent the local coffee shop very often, so the new Caribou Iced Coffee is perfect for me.
Caribou Coffee is a Minneapolis-based company that is the 2nd largest company-operated premium coffeehouse in the US. As a premium coffeehouse, that means they only use premium ingredients. I love knowing that my coffee is made with low fat milk, and that the chocolate and caramel are real chocolate and caramel, not some artificial flavor nonsense.
Caribou Coffee has become my new favorite go-to ready-made coffee. I can sip it at home, grab it while I am out and even use it as a special treat. Check out my top 3 ways to enjoy Caribou Iced Coffee.
Straight from the bottle: I love having a glass of Caribou Coffee while I am working in the late afternoon and need a pick me up. It is also great sitting on the front porch watching the sun rise before starting work. I can grab it while I am out running errands. It’s delicious just straight the way it is. Plus with 3 flavors, Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Mocha, and Vanilla, every glass feels special. I haven’t tried the Vanilla flavor yet, but I’m checking my stores regularly for it.
Coffee House Style: If you love the coffee house frozen coffee, but hate the coffee house prices, use Caribou Coffee to make your own in no time at all. Using either a blender or an immersion blender, blend your choice of flavor of Caribou Coffee with ice. The amount of ice will depend on how slushy you want your drink to be and how much coffee you are making. If you are unsure, start slowly. Once you have the frozen coffee drink, pour into a tall class, add some whipped cream and drizzle a matching syrup on top. I used Sea Salt Caramel and a caramel drizzle. Nom. Nom. Nom.
Coffee Float: If you want a decadent treat, start with a base of Caribou Coffee and add in some vanilla ice cream. Drizzle some chocolate syrup on top and enjoy with a straw or a spoon. Coffee floats are great for hot summer evenings, watching the kids play or the sun set.
Caribou Premium Ice Coffee can now be found in grocery store and in convenience store across the country. Available in 14 oz and 32 oz sizes, Caribou Coffee can become your go-to iced coffee.

I love all of these ideas so much! I usually just drink it straight out of the bottle, but these are much better ways to enjoy it.

I am a fan of the iced coffees.
My husband is still a hot coffee drinker, but I really like these flavors.
Wow that looks so delicious! My husband is the coffee drinker in our household, so I’ll have to tell him about this!
I really like iced coffee. That sea salt caramel sounds like something I would really enjoy.
Barbara Montag says
Wow this looks so good!
Thanks for the ideas.
Oooh, I’d drink that all 3 ways! However, I think the iced coffee with the caramel drizzle would be my favorite.

Mmm, I’m liking these ideas. Straight from the bottle is good for convenience but I’d have to make some floats too.
I love Caribou Ice Coffee, my favorite treat when I get to the grocery store alone!
Oh nice! This looks delicious and perfect for a hot summer day!
YES!! I love all of these ways – but wow that float sure looks good. Caribou coffee is so good!
