Salted Caramel Iced Coffee Recipe

I love iced coffee.
You know the really expensive kind you 
get at unnamed coffee shops?
The kind that tastes great until you step out into the heat
 and then you are just drinking a
really expensive cup of watered down,
sugary grossness?

Well here's the perfect solution! 
The World's Best Iced Coffee!
Well it's the best in my little world! 
It's cost effective, I know exactly what's going into it, 
and I know that I am supporting a great cause with every sip!

If you paid attention to our Mother's Day Giveaway
then you are not stranger to 
If you're new here then please take the time 
to check out Madhava and they awesomeness that surrounds
their company! 
I just adore a company that not only cares about 
their consumers by offering only the best of products and ingredients, but also
cares so much for their #1 employees…

So here's what you will need for this recipe:

Madhava Organic Salted Caramel Coffee Syrup (buy it here!)
12 oz. Cold brew coffee (make in advance)
1 cup of almond milk
coffee ice cubes
sea salt
a handful of 12 oz Mason Jars (optional)

Step 1:

First you will need to cold brew your coffee.
This step takes about 48 hours.
My advice to you…
This 12 oz cup of coffee concentrate will make about 
4 cups of iced coffee.  
So I pretty much always have one in the fridge cold brewing.
In a 12 oz container, Mason Jars work great,
place 4 tbsp of coffee and fill with cold water.
Give it a good shake and place it in the fridge.
I have made a habit of giving it a good shake every time I 
open the refrigerator door.

Step 2:

After 48 hrs, 
it's time to filter our the coffee
using a strainer over a new Mason Jar.
This is now your coffee concentrate that 
you will use for your iced coffee recipe.
I can't stress enough that this is a CONCENTRATE!

Step 3:

Now add 1 tsp. off your 
to your cup of almond milk.
I like to mix thoroughly to create a sweetened milk.

Step 4:

Now add your cold brew coffee concentrate,
your coffee ice cubes, and a sprinkle sea salt.

The Boys First Camping Trip

This past weekend the Trumble family set out 
for their very first family camping trip.
While the hubs and I have camped before,
we have never camped together and the boy had never been.

We headed out to Golden Gate State Park 
to meet up with some friends for a family fun weekend!

It was everything a camping trip should be.
Camp fires, marshmallows, and dirty little boys.
Above is a picture of a piece of ash that we found under a rock.
It reads: "Hear This"
It was pretty much a great reminder for the weekend to stop and take it all in.

The boys played so hard for three days straight.
Baseball, soccer, exploring, and a lot of make believe.

Oh! Yes! There was axe throwing as well.  
Lots of axe throwing.

And all the pups behaved as well.
Did I mention that it was also sweet Stella's first camping trip as well.

On our nature walks we talked about ecosystems and got close up on 
little bits of nature that we would normally just walk right past.

Beware of the attacking watermelon bandit.

All in all it was the perfect weekend filled 
with lots of laughter and a wonderful time! 
So much so that we planned out next adventure for this weekend.
