As you probably know, I’m a huge coffee lover and my coffee breaks are my favorite parts of the day. More or less. Kalle is the same and we put quite a lot of effort into our coffee drinking. About a year or two ago we upgraded our coffee beans to a waaaay more expensive one, which has a touch of wiener nougat flavor to it. It’s incredible, and our coffee has almost become famous among family and friends. Not that we can take any credit for it, we’re just buying it. But still. It’s quite pricy, but we always say that life is too short for drinking bad coffee. Don’t you agree?
I’m not one of those who drink 15 cups of coffee a day, I usually have about 3 cups. I love it black and real strong, but sometimes I love to add a little skimmed oat milk or pea milk to it. Ah, it’s so good. There’s only one problem, when it’s as hot as it has been in Sweden lately, I just can’t drink hot coffee. It’s impossible. But I still need my daily cups of the black gold, so then you have to come up with new ideas – like ice coffee. It’s the perfect drink on warm days and not as sweet as ice tea usually is.
Making ice coffee is ridiculously easy. You only need like two ingredients – coffee and plant milk. You can of course spice things up a bit if you like, but you can keep it real simple too. Below you can see how I make my fancier version of ice coffee, I hope you’ll love it too!
Ice coffee with skimmed plant milk and coconut sugar
makes 1 glass
0,5 dl coffee
1 1/2 dl plant milk of your choice (I use Oatly)
3-4 coffee ice cubes (recipe below)
Skimmed plant milk
- Brew coffee and let cool completely. Save any leftover coffee in the fridge or use it to make ice cubes (recipe below).
- Pour the coffee into a glass or a cup.
- Add the ice cubes and then the plant milk. Stir.
- Top with the skimmed plant milk and the coconut sugar. Just add as much as you want of these two ingredients, but if you want some guidance I’m using about 0,5 dl plant milk (like Sproud or Oatly iKaffe) and about 1/2 tsp coconut sugar.
- Ready to be served!
