Iced coffee

I love iced coffees, but I haven't had one since I started my new, sugarfree life over a year ago.  That was untill I came across this recipe on "lchf-bloggen" (the lchf blog) today:
I can't believe I hadn't thought of this myself!

Of course I had to try it, and it was SOOO yummy! It will definately not be the last time I make this. I had a day of home-office today, so I enjoyed a huge glass of this on our front veranda during a break.
I changed the recipe slightly from the blog-recipe, adding 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder.

2 heaped tsp Nescafe espresso powder
3 tsp erythritol (the finely ground, icing sugar type)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
50 ml boiling water
200 ml cold water
100 ml cream
lots of ice cubes

Dissolve the coffee powder and erythritol in the boiling water. Add vanilla powder and stir. Let cool a little, if you have the patience for it... Put plenty of ice cubes in a shaker. Pour the coffee mixture, cold water and cream in the shaker and shake well. Taste to check that it's sweet/strong enough for you and that the water/cream-balance is right.
Pour the iced coffee and the ice cubes into two glasses  - or 1 big glass, like I did (see picture)
