Iced Coffee with Vanilla Bean Coffee Ice Cubes

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 3 cups milk (any fat you prefer)
  • 1 vanilla bean, or 1/2 tsp ground vanilla bean
  • 3 cups strong coffee, brewed and cooled to room temperature


  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the milk and vanilla bean (scrape the seeds into the milk, but add the entire pod, too). Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and let cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the milk from the heat, take out the vanilla pod, and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Save one cup of the milk and one cup of the coffee for your drink (adjust your proportions to your taste), and make the rest into ice cubes — do not combine (you can, if you want, but I liked the look of some coffee and some vanilla milk cubes!).
  4. When your cubes are totally frozen, make your coffee and add the ice cubes! You’ll never have diluted iced coffee again!
