I used to think I was an iced coffee addict….until I met this girl. This girl is the true definition of an iced coffee addict. She would definitely drink me under the table if the drink of choice was iced coffee. Compared to her, I’m simply an iced coffee drinker, not an addict. But nonetheless, I still love my iced coffee. This past summer I decided to experiment and switch up my daily cold brew in a few new ways. Below are my 5 favorites-
Iced Coffee Granita// Use a ratio of 4 parts cold-brew coffee concentrate to 1 part condensed milk (i.e. to make this batch I used 2 cups of coffee and 1/2 a cup of condensed milk). Whisk together until well combined and there are no clumps of condensed milk left. Pour into a medium-sized baking dish and freeze until solid, about 2 hours. Scrape with a fork and serve. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.
Vietnamese Iced Coffee// Use a ratio of 1 part condensed milk + 2 parts coffee. Pour condensed milk into the bottom of a glass (I like to use a mason jar) then top with hot coffee. Stir to combine (if you’re using a mason jar put the lid on then shake). Top with ice and serve.
Coffee & Cream Ice Cubes// Freeze coffee into one ice cube tray then fill another tray with either cream, milk, coconut or almond milk or a mixture of any of those and freeze until set. Add a few to a glass of cold brew.
Cappuccino Popsicles// Layer cream (or a milk mixture) with coffee and freeze. Get the full directions on how to make these here.
