Cuddle up with the cozy flavors of a classic cinnamon bun with a refreshing twist in this Cinnamon Bun Iced Coffee recipe! Made with simple ingredients and easy-to-follow directions, this chilled beverage is perfect for hot summer days or when you're craving a deliciously spiced and creamy treat.

To start, you'll need 4 1/2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of medium roast coffee. Brew the coffee with 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon added to the coffee basket for a warm and fragrant infusion of cinnamon flavor. Once brewed, transfer the coffee to a pitcher and refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until it's cooled to your preference.

While the coffee is chilling, it's time to prepare the whipped cream. In a large mixing bowl, whip 1 cup of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form, creating a velvety and decadent base for the cinnamon bun inspired topping. Add in 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and gently stir to combine the flavors. The result is a heavenly cinnamon whipped cream that's sure to elevate your iced coffee experience to new heights. Don't forget to reserve some of the cinnamon whipped cream in the refrigerator for garnish later.

Next, in a small mixing bowl, mix together the remaining 1/3 cup of heavy cream and the remaining 1/4 cup of powdered sugar until well combined. This sweetened cream mixture adds a creamy touch to the coffee and enhances its richness.

Now it's time to bring it all together. In a pitcher or carafe, combine the chilled coffee with the cream and powdered sugar mixture, stirring gently to create a harmonious blend of flavors. The result is a delightful and indulgent cinnamon bun iced coffee that's perfect as a special treat any time of the year.

To serve, pour the coffee mixture over ice, and garnish with a dollop of the reserved cinnamon whipped cream and a sprinkle of the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for a visually appealing and aromatic finishing touch. The creamy whipped cream with hints of cinnamon adds a luxurious and decadent touch to the refreshing iced coffee, reminiscent of the beloved flavors of a classic cinnamon bun
