Brew the coffee in advance because you need it to be cold when you go to blend it. You can put it in a mason jars to store throughout the week or in another container, and the coffee should be stored in the refrigerator. This is any type of blend that you want it doesn't matter.

Pick a Creamer
You can get creamer that's flavored like vanilla, caramel, and many other varieties from name brand and store brand providers, depending on your tastes and your budget. Pick a few different ones if you want a variety of drinks and keep them in the refrigerator as directed.

If you want to add some whipped cream or you want to drizzle chocolate or caramel on the top, it will be even more like a coffee shop drink. You can get a frozen drink carrier to keep it cool throughout the day while you enjoy. You can get the great frozen coffee that you want without having to spend money every day, and you can pick the ingredients to make it as healthy as you want.
