I’m offering you a special coffee treat to make for all the moms in your life. Because we need it. Because we survive on it. Because we deserve it. One sip of this homemade toasted coconut iced coffee and mom will be momentarily transported to a far-flung island with sand and waves and coconut trees, enjoying sweet, highly caffeinated bliss.
