minty fresh

despite normally being the type of person who can’t function without a cup of coffee in the morning, i haven’t been indulging in it much over the past 4.5 months because i have been told i should cut back for the sake of the little person growing inside of me. i didn’t have any coffee until about a month ago, but as time has gone on, i’ve gotten more comfortable with a weekly cup (or two). and of course, being that i am now a resident of sweltering hot los angeles, a nice cold brew is my new drink of choice. i made this little recipe and gif for the modcloth blog earlier this week and figured i might as well share it here because it’s basically the best summer beverage ever (after this drink, which i could also easily enjoy every day).

  1. It looks so refreshing. I wax totally off coffee for the first 4 months of my pregnancy and I’ve only just started occasionally drinking it over the last two weeks. I used to drink loads but for a long time I just couldn’t even stand the smell!

  2. Looks delicious! And reminds me of Philz coffee with the mint. Yum. PS I’m pregnant too, due in early February. It’s been hard to cut out the amount of coffee I used to drink, but it makes weekend coffee dates that absolute best! XOXO

  3. Yum! I’ve heard mint is wonderful with coffee, especially cold-press. I’m due with my first in early November and usually indulge with a single-shot americano a few times a week. No shame! Congrats on your little one :)

  4. You are so good! I have been having one small (6 oz) cup every morning because my doctor gave me the ok but in the beginning I didn’t want it at all, the smell grossed me out so I stuck to tea. There are so many rules with pregnancy it’s crazy! I want to do the best I can and 9 months isn’t that long to give up things but I am really missing fancy stinky gooey french cheese :(
