If you’ve never experienced the thick, frothy, ultra creamy drink known as frozen coffee, get ready for your whole life to change.
Okay, maybe not your whole life. But still, this is one of those recipes that’s so simple, you’re going to be mad at yourself for not thinking of it sooner. I mean, think about all the years of your life wasted drinking regular iced coffee. Not to worry, your future’s about to get a whole lot brighter.
Here’s the concept: a small amount of strong, hot coffee gets blended with ice and whatever else you love in your coffee (cream, almond milk, honey/maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, collagen peptides <-my current fave (or just leave it black- it’s still thick and frothy either way)). The ice doesn’t fully melt, but instead turns into the most fluffly, frothy, thick, milk shake-like iced coffee, ever. It almost feels like coffee magic.
Trust me, you’re going to want to add this frozen coffee to your daily routine ASAP. Here’s how you make it:
- Brew six ounces of strong coffee. I do this in my Aeropress with a heaping scoop of coffee and only six ounces of water. Regardless of how you make your coffee, the idea here is to use more coffee grounds and less water for an ultra concentrated coffee. Remember, the ice will water it down, so you won’t actually be drinking this super bold cup of coffee as is. (P.S. you could even use cold brew here, if you happen to have it)
- Put 4-6 large ice cubes in a blender with a splash of cream and a drizzle of your sweetener or choice (optional-you can leave these out if you prefer your coffee black).
- Pour in the hot coffee, and blend until thick and creamy.
I hope you love this simple yet game-changing coffee as much as I do. Although it is essentially just coffee and ice, the end result is so different from regular old iced coffee. I’ve been drinking this every morning for two weeks straight and still haven’t gotten sick of it. If you follow me in Instagram, you already know how obsessed I am; frozen coffee has made it into my stories prettymuch every day for the past two weeks.
Speaking of which- Kevin and I will be away for our wedding anniversary this weekend, so make sure you’re following along with all of our adventures over on Instagram. There probably won’t be any frozen coffee, but there’s likely to be plenty of goats, hiking, and blueberry picking!
Happy weekend, Friends! I hope yours is full of frozen coffee and lots of love!
