What’s in a coke icee?

Coca Cola icee is a refreshment made by Coca Cola, and served at Burger King. It is extremely popular at their fast food restaurants. Cola is one of the many Icee flavors, other popular flavors includes blue raspberry, banana, and blood orange.

If you’re lucky, you might be able to get a coke icee at your local convenience store too.

It tastes like the coke we often buy from a movie theater or a convenience store. However, there’s a patented machine that keeps the liquids at a certain temperature that’s not frozen but it tastes like an icee liquid.

Coke icee is definitely a fave summer drink, but have you ever wondered if there’s caffeine in it? Here’s how to copycat a coke icee:


All you need is chilled coke, it’s so simple!

You can use diet, zero or any other coke you prefer!

What kitchen tools do I need?

All you need is a blender so you can insert the ice cubes and coke.

Other coke icee recipes use an ice cream maker to make them or ice cube trays.

Ice cream maker:

The ice cream bowl needs to be freezed for a minimum of 15 hours. Also, it is important for the soda to be chilled before using. Slowly add the coke until it’s a little bit away from the top of the bowl and turn on to speed 2. You can add coconut syrup or lime. Let the mix stir and chill for about 15 minutes. 


Fill ¾ of the ice cubes with the type of coke soda you prefer and let freeze completely. Once they’re frozen, place about 5 cups of ice in the blender and add about 12 oz of chilled coke. Blend until they are icee.

But do coke icees have caffeine?

The answer is simple, yes they do! A can of Coca Cola contains 34 mg of caffeine, which is half of a cup of normal coffee.

Is caffeine good or bad?

Caffeine, due to its stimulating effects, is associated with a variety of health benefits, as it boosts the metabolism, increases alertness, elevates mood and good fitness performance.

However, increased caffeine consumption raises the risk of insomnia, restlessness and anxiety. Other studies have shown that even moderate consumption is associated with chronic headaches and migraines. In addition, caffeine is considered addictive, so most caffeine drinkers are becoming dependent on it on a daily basis.

How much Caffeine should you have per day?

How much caffeine is too much caffeine? 400 milligrams is the recommended maximum intake from caffeinated beverages, which is about 11 cans of Coca Cola! This is definitely too many Coca Cola cans to drink in a single day though. You should consume caffeine moderately. More caffeine than the recommended limit can result in negative health benefits, such as insomnia, and headaches.

Pregnant women are encouraged to have no more than 200mg of caffeine per day, as more can increase the chances of miscarriage, and fetal growth.

Is Coke Icees an unhealthy drink?

Coke Icees only have about 15 mg of caffeine, which is under the limit of the suggested caffeine intake. However, coke icees are overloaded with sugar. Sugar raises our triglycerides, which is the main factor that can put us at a higher risk for heart problems.
