Summer is here and that means it’s time to switch over to the iced coffees! Some times iced coffees can be quite hit and miss, luckily for you we have compiled 8 unique iced coffee recipes with a twist to cool you down this summer!
1. Greek Style Frappe
For the ones in the know, this is an absolute treat for those warm months. Sipping an ice cold frappe on a hot Greek beach, this is one foolproof recipe to always have the perfect summer drink. It’s super easy to make as there’s not too much fuss and no special ingredients involved- just simple good quality instant coffee, sugar and milk.
2. Vietnamese Iced Coffee
Not much is known about this delicious version of iced coffee from Vietnam. It’s brilliant for really hot summer days. It’s made with very strong coffee but sweetened with condensed milk and poured over ice. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe, it gives you a step by step procedure and also information on the equipment and type of coffee to use! It’s balanced and once you make it you can adjust the sweetness by reducing (or increasing) the quantity of condensed milk.
3. Coffee And Tonic
This may just be your summer drink of choice once you try this recipe. It’s an interesting concept and this iced coffee has gained massive popularity over the past few months and rightly so. It is a unique combination to say the least, it’s definitely refreshing especially with a cold brew coffee. This recipe calls for an orange syrup although this is optional, a slice of lemon for garnish works perfectly for this light and refreshing drink.
4. Dulce De Leche Frappe
A sweeter version of the Greek Frappe with the inclusion of sweet, toffee like dulce de leche (or salted caramel) from Argentina- this iced coffee makes for a brilliant sunset drink. Top with whipped cream for a decadent finish.
5. Coconut Caramel Cold Brew
There’s been much debate about which is better, iced coffee which uses hot espresso poured over ice or cold brew- which allows for slower brewing in cooler water. While they both have different flavour profiles- the cold brew works really well in this recipe. The use of coconut milk gives a lighter more refreshing finish and who doesn’t love caramel?
6. Coffee Lemonade
This one again is not for everyone and pretty unique, but extremely refreshing. The sweet and acidic lemonade works really well with the coffee and is a lighter alternative for those who want a less caffeinated drink. Try this recipe for a delicious lemonade iced coffee made with a simple syrup and fresh lemons.
7. Iced Mocha Vanilla Frappuccino
A sweet chocolatey finish to a really hot day- this recipe will have you making this every week during the summer. This recipe is vegan and uses almond milk and vegan chocolate and is super easy to prepare and even easier to drink!
8. Cold Brewed Maple Almond Iced Coffee
This cold brew iced coffee recipe is flavoured with almond milk (try roasted almond for extra flavour) and sweetened with maple syrup. This is easy and affordable iced coffee that you can make every day at home. It uses simple ingredients that you always stock at home and is not time consuming. It’s refreshing and absolutely delicious!
