When I fall, I fall hard, and this week I have been going absolutely wild for this Iced Coffee. All the joy with some skin-plumping extras and loads of energy.
It started with a simple shopping list to buy CAMP, the liquid coffee extract we always had at home as kids, as I was in a heatwave state of coffee urgency and really wanted an Iced Coffee at my desk.
This little innocent looking bottle of ‘coffee and chicory extract’ is 25% SUGAR, it’s the predominant ingredient, so I got cross, and thought I could make a better one without all that in it. What’s the point in getting a delicious cold drink that’s gonna dump you on a sugar crash straight after and leave you snoozing.
And after 3 tries I have perfected this beauty. As creamy as you like and full of skin plumping added extra goodness from my secret ingredient. (Get the Collagen Scoop here)
