Here at UKMums.TV iced coffee is our favourite beverage to drink during the summer months for a pick-me-up, especially on a hot afternoon. As mums, we definitely need our caffeine kick throughout the day, but the thought of a hot cup of coffee during the warmer weather just doesn’t hit the spot, so what better than to combine a refreshing, iced coffee with our favourite meal of the day – dessert!
But wait, don’t rush to your nearest coffee shop for an over-priced iced coffee – we’ve got some of our favourite recipes that we have tried and tested that we think you will love creating at home!
Condensed Milk Iced Coffee
If you like your coffee strong, try mixing condensed milk with strong espresso then leave it to cool and add milk, then refrigerate it until its cold and serve over ice.. In Spain it’s a tradition to drink coffee like this and traditionally it’s known as a Café Bombon. You can find the full recipe for this creamy and indulgent iced coffee here.
Vanilla Iced Coffee
Keep it simple with a classic Vanilla Iced Coffee. For black coffee lovers, simply brew your favourite espresso, add ice and Monin Vanilla Syrup into a cup, then pour your espresso on top, stir to mix the flavour around and add more ice if needed. Here’s a recipe that we found on BBC Good Food that uses Maple syrup.
