This Viral Iced Coffee Hack Won’t Water Down Your Drink

Three different photos of frozen coffee ice cubes are transformed into iced coffee using oat milk.

Iced coffee lovers know that adding ice cubes to hot coffee is a recipe for disaster. Not only does it make the coffee taste bitter, but it waters it down. Thankfully, there’s a viral iced coffee hack that can help.

For this trick—created by TikTok user @Katielopynski—you will need to plan ahead. To keep her coffee fresh, she takes brewed coffee and freezes it into ice cubes. She then adds the cubes into a glass cup and pours oat milk over top—but you can use whatever dairy or non-dairy items you’d like. While the cup is milky at first, as the coffee melts, it becomes a creamy coffee drink that hasn’t lost its coffee taste.

Katie is far from the only social media user to discover a useful food hack, though. TikTok, in particular, is full of food hacks and recipes that may shock you. From the sugar rush of an Oreo-stuffed Halloween sugar cookie to how to quickly ripen an avocado, the video-sharing platform is a surprisingly good place to find fixes to common kitchen ailments.

If one of yours is watering down your iced coffee, TikTok may have just helped.
