Naturally Sweet Maple Iced Coffee

I’m back! It’s almost summer time and I haven’t written in many moons. My deepest apologies. I have excuses but you are not here for my excuses! You are here for inspiring recipes and pretty photography, so I shall give you those instead.

One thing that I especially loathe about American food culture is how frequently fake/cheap ingredients are used. I strive to make everything I can from scratch 1) because it’s easy 2) because it’s fun and 3) because it’s infinitely more delicious than it’s faux-substitute. It’s iced & frozen coffee season which means the high fructose corn syrup is abound in those $4 plastic cups. I shall give you a cheap & delicious alternative.
