  • Kristina wants to know, “Hi All! Looking for recommendations for free calendar planning tools that can show a variety of marketing vehicles content that’s planned at a glance (social channels, email, etc). Something flexible enough for teams executing these vehicles to use but also something that can be exported to share with leadership easily. Any ideas?”
  • Any input for Ashley, “Hi Carnies 👋 I am looking into professional development opportunities for 2020. Are there any paid media focused conferences you’re excited about this year?”
  • Stephen is curious, “What brands do a good job creating videos about their users, both high profile users and regular folks? The first brand that comes to mind is Nike. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Extra points if they’re in the fitness space, and/or talk about the brand without making the video sound like an advertorial.”
  • Taryn went and asked about our embarrassing moments, “Let’s share embarrassing work stories….I just left a voicemail for someone (luckily not a new client, another agency I need something from for a new client), and my brain went completely fucking blank when I tried to repeat our phone number. I panicked, said “I completely spaced on our phone number” and just hung up the phone. In telling the story back to my boss, I think I even told them the wrong phone number the first go around.”

Homemade Caramel Vanilla Iced Coffee


For the caramel:

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 tsp Ghee (or vegan butter for vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

For the coffee:

  • 3 Cups Chilled, brewed coffee
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Ice


  1. In a SMALL pot, stir together all of the caramel ingredients on medium heat. Bring to a boil.

  2. Once boiling, cook until the caramel reduced by almost 1/2 and deepens in color, stirring constantly so that it doesn’t burn, this takes about 5-6 minutes.

  3. Immediately transfer to a measuring glass (you should have just over 1/3 cup of caramel) and let sit for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until nice and thick.

To assemble:

  1. Fill 3 highball glasses 1/2 way with ice cubes.  Pour 1 cup of cold coffee into each glass, followed by 1/3 cup of almond milk. Add 2 Tbsp of the caramel * syrup into each glass and stir well, until the caramel is dissolved and well mixed.

  2. DRINK!

Recipe Notes

*If the caramel gets a little too hard, you can microwave it for just 5 seconds or so. You want it pourable but not runny!
