One of the hardest parts about being pregnant (well besides my cravings for beer) is the cutdown on caffeine.

Notice I didn’t say cut out – I am not that strong.

I bought decaf tea for my iced tea and I allow myself one mini soda (those adorable mini 8 oz cans) a day.

I figure it’s only 21 mg of caffeine…divided by 2 babies. Heck – I probably get more caffeine from chocolate milkshakes. 😉


But on a long work day or a day where I really just crave my fix, I have a special Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

My doctor told me a cup of coffee is a-ok…but I wonder if he knows how strong I like it! Just kidding…well, kind of.

This is my favorite way to make iced coffee. It’s easy and stores in the fridge for up to a week.

Lately I have been making super small batches, but normally one batch will last me a week.

Perfect to make ahead on Sunday to save yourself the $5 trip through Starbucks!
