Summer is finally in full swing and that means two things: amazing weather and cold brewed coffee!  It’s no surprise to many of you, especially those who read my blog regularly, that I love Starbucks® coffee. Between school, work, and my personal life I need coffee to make it through the day. With the weather only getting warmer and more of my time is spent out in the sun, I started to really crave iced coffee especially on my morning walks with Frankie. So I headed to Walmart to find a quick and easy option!

Starbucks® just recently released Starbucks® Nariño 70 Cold Crew pitcher packs at Walmart. When I saw it in the coffee aisle, I was intrigued. I grabbed a box and crossed my fingers in hopes it’d be easy to do at home. I was actually so surprised to discover how easy and enjoyable it was making my own iced coffee! Thanks to Starbucks®, I can make cold brew coffee at home in less than 5 minutes!

Simply add two packs into a large pitcher, add four cups of water, and place in your refrigerator for 24 hours.

After 24 hours, remove the packs, add three cups of cold water to your pitcher and then you’re done!

 I filled a large glass with ice and then poured my cold brewed coffee. I also added two pumps of vanilla syrup and a splash of milk to give it a sweeter flavor.

It was absolutely delicious! The process is seriously so easy and the best part is the cold brew lasts for up to seven days in your fridge. 

Even though my summer schedule may be busy, I’m determined to enjoy it! As some would say a great day starts with a morning routine and with my Starbucks® cold brewed coffee, Frankie and I are enjoying our morning walks even more this summer! I love the cool crisp summer air in the morning and feeling the warmth of the sun hit my face all while enjoying my morning coffee, being active, and connecting with my fur baby.

Oh, I almost forgot! Right now you can collect 75 Bonus Stars with purchase of any (3) Starbucks® packaged coffees or K-Cup® pods through 7/10/17! Click here for more details!
