There’s no need to drive to the coffee shop for an iced coffee treat. Those are often heavy with syrups, loaded with added sugar. In just a few short minutes, you can whip up a satisfying drink yourself that contains just one teaspoon of added sugar—brown sugar for caramel-like richness. A little splash of almond extract enhances the sweetness and deepens the almond flavor. Be careful not to use too much; almond extract can easily overwhelm if you use too much.
