Vanilla Bean Iced Coffee

The heady aroma of coffee brewing conjures up memories of my childhood. My dad’s first duty of the day was to make a pot of coffee. Like my father, I prefer mine black unless my sweet tooth tells me otherwise. That’s when I make and chill a pot of coffee the night before, add some sugar, vanilla extract, and a vanilla bean. That makes quick work of my delicious indulgence in the morning. I’m sharing a handy new Folgers’ product today that will also speed up your coffee ritual.Vanilla Bean Iced Coffee | When you need a sweet indulgence to brighten your morning!

Folgers Brightens Your Morning

Folgers was the brand that was always next to the coffeepot in my childhood kitchen. The iconic red can was part my parents’ morning ritual. Well, things have come a long way. Folgers has just come out with a new, convenient product, Perfect Measures. Now available in Kansas City, St. Louis, and right here in Indianapolis, the coffee is compressed into a neat and tidy disc. Each disc equals one scoop of ground coffee, ensuring a marvelous pot of coffee every morning! No accidental goofs when losing count while measuring out coffee the old fashioned way. Instead, drop these Perfect Measure tabs into your filter and brew away. Being bleary-eyed in the morning, I’m loving this new foolproof innovation.Vanilla Bean Iced Coffee | When you need a sweet indulgence to brighten your morning!

Indianapolis Coffee Statistics

Did you know today is National Coffee Day? While writing this post, I learned that 74% of those polled in Indianapolis required a cup of coffee to kick off their day. In comparison, 40% felt eating breakfast and 39% felt that waking up on time were needed to begin the day on the right foot! One study revealed that nearly one in 10 coffee drinkers found it difficult to measure coffee properly in order to have that perfect cup. Folgers Measures is catering to you. No measuring errors result in that fabulous cup of Joe that Hoosiers and coffee drinkers across the states yearn for every morning. Indy friends, look for this new product around town!!

Prep time
Total time
Iced coffee with a double dose of vanilla and whipped cream topping to brighten your day!
Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 3-4 cups of coffee
  • 16 ounces of coffee brewed using Folgers Perfect Measures, Breakfast Blend or your favorite Folgers Measures variety
  • ¼-1/2 cup sugar (I love my iced coffee sweet so used the larger measurement)
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Half and half, to taste
  • Sweetened whipped cream
  • Cocoa powder, optional
  • Caramel sauce, optional
  1. Brew a pot of coffee using Folgers Perfect Measures tabs. Pour 16 ounces of hot coffee into a large Pyrex measuring cup or heatproof bowl. Whisk in sugar and vanilla. Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into the coffee. Add the pod to the coffee. Whisk again until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until cold.
  2. To serve, fill your mug about ¾ full with cold coffee. Add ice cubes. Whisk in half and half to taste; use a tablespoon or so. Top with sweetened whipped cream. Dust with cocoa powder and a drizzle of caramel, if desired.
Use extra coffee to make coffee ice cubes. This ensures your iced coffee won't get diluted when you add ice.
Add sugar to taste. Feel free to leave it black if that's your preference.
Toppings can include cocoa powder, a drizzle of caramel or even mini chocolate chips.

Kitchen Tip:

To avoid diluting your iced coffee drinks, why not use leftover coffee to make ice cubes. As they melt, they will not water down your beverage!
