The Best Ever Iced Coffee or Frappuccino!

 

 

Whenever I go to India there is the most amazing Iced Coffee I get at McDs of all places. Don’t judge, it’s really delicious. When I get home I run through tubs of double cream trying to recreate that sweet, creamy flavour.

Then one day, while sipping a hot Vietnamese coffee I had a brainwave and the easiest, tastiest iced coffee was born. And best of all no fancy equiThen I discovered throwing the whole lot in the blender makes a cool, creamy, delicious drink/pudding to rival any coffee shop. And now that it’s decided to be summer here I thought I’d share the recipe with you

Serves 1  as a straightforward iced coffee, 2 for a blended drink(because youll need more ice). These are the proportions I use but feel free to change them according to your palate or the size of your glass. The glass I used was about 300ml.

Ingredients

  • 1 shot of espresso
  • 1 tbs of condensed milk
  • 1 tbs double cream
  • 150  ml milk
  • a handful of ice cubes
  • 15-30 ml booze (optional but recommended), kahlua, amaretto, bailey’s, frangelico all work well here. Yes, I have tried.
  • ice cream (optional)
  • squirty cream (optional)

Method

If you are planning to blend your drink you can make it in the blender cup. If not you can make it straight into your serving cup.

  1. Make a good, strong shot of espresso.

    Get your espresso on

    If you don’t have an espresso machine, mix up 2 tsp instant coffee with 30ml of water, just off the boil and stir well until all the granules dissolve.
