Save yourselves a trip to Starbucks and get your caffeine fix with this cooling homemade vanilla-flavored iced coffee. To make it even creamier, you may add a little (1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon) xanthan gum or turn it into an iced mocha by adding 2 tablespoons cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder.

1/4 cup sugar free vanilla syrup  

2 tablespoons unsweetened butter 

1/8 teaspoon sea salt
