The Perfect Vanilla Iced Coffee // Recipe!


Hey lovelies! Iced Coffee in Summer is one of my favourite things and I know I'll be going through so many in the next few weeks, there's just something so sweet, delicious and simple about them that I love. But also - if you're like me, there's just no way you'll be spending £4 on a Starbucks Iced Coffee every day. Hence this post, a short little recipe post to get you through those hot Summer days and showing you a quick and easy 'Perfect Vanilla Iced Coffee.' To make this you can be as healthy or over-the-top as you like, using dates for natural sweeteners or instead going all out with flavoured syrups, but my favourite trick I've learned when making Iced Coffee is freezing little milk cubes before hand to add to your coffee to make them melt gradually and get that cool marbled look.  
This is the most basic form of the recipe, but it's so easy to experiment with you could easily make a salted caramel, matcha or mocha one by adding your own ingredients!



FOR THE ICE COFFEE  (Makes 1 Cup)

  • 1/2 Cup of Cold-Brewed Coffee
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • Medjool Dates / or Honey to sweeten
  • Ice

METHOD:


1. Add half the almond milk into an ice cube tray and pop in the freezer until you end up with little frozen milk cubes. 
2. Pour your cold brew coffee into a mason jar (it should fill about 1/2 the jar depending on how strong you want your coffee) and meanwhile blend up the rest of the 1/4 Cup milk with your honey / dates / vanilla and pour over the top. This should give you that gorgeous marble look as the coffee and milk swirl together. 
3. Top up with the almond milk ice cubes + more ice, pop in a straw and enjoy!

  2. I have to admit I actually need this recipe in my life, during summer I love a Java Chip Frappe from Starbucks, but sometimes I need to save my coin. Thank you for sharing girlie, I'll definitely be using this in the very near future.

  9. This looks so yummy and honestly I would normally try it but I have given up coffee!!! Health reasons, I don't even turn my head anymore and I used to drink it every day. Sigh.
