    Homemade Iced Coffee

    Classic Iced Coffee Recipe

    Are you a coffee lover or even a coffeholic? Do you prefer yours with milk, cream, sugar, or simply black? Any way you like it, an iced coffee is always delicious! And BPT has the best homemade recipe! No more iced coffee from Tim Hortons, McDonald, or Starbucks (even if you adore Starbucks’ coffee… It’s easy, less expansive (and tastier!) when homemade!).

    There are lots of sweeteners you can add to your coffee. For example, you could use honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, or even maple sugar in your hot or cold beverage. However, don’t forget that any sugar translates into carbohydrates once digested.

    Plus, there are also different types of dairy products and substitutes available in grocery stores. These soften the rich and full-bodied taste of coffee. For example, you could use regular, flavored or plant-based milk. Plus, you can always froth it for a pleasant texture!

    Lipids (fats) are essential to your body. They are an important source of energy. However, an excessive consumption is associated with weight gain and higher risks of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Unsaturated fats are preferable to saturated or trans fats.
  • Saturated fats
    1.6 g
    8 % DV
    Saturated fats, commonly known as “bad fats”, are mostly found in processed foods and in some products of animal origin. If consumed in excess, they can have adverse effects on cardiovascular health, including increases in LDL-cholesterol levels. Try to eat better lipids such as those found in fish, nuts, oilseeds, and oils!
  • Cholesterol

    Your body mainly uses cholesterol to produce hormones. It is only found in foods of animal origin such as meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. However, dietary cholesterol has little to no influence on your cholesterol level compared to saturated and trans fats.
  • Sodium

    In small quantities, sodium is an essential nutrient for your body. However, you probably eat too much of it without even being aware, and this overconsumption can have adverse effects on your health. Indeed, excess sodium targets organs and can lead to hypertension.

    Carbohydrates are a good source of energy. They are your brain’s main source of fuel for all functions. The carbohydrate group is divided into simple and complex sugars, fibers, and starches. Carbohydrates are mostly found in fruits, dairy products, baked goods, pastries, sweets, cereals, and legumes. It is recommended to not eat high quantities of added sugars. Limit your intake to 50 g/day.
  • Fibers

As for insoluble fibers, they increase stool bulk and regulate bowel function. Since they slow down the digestion process, they promote satiety, which contributes to appetite and weight control. You should consume at least 30 g everyday.
