Can you believe I discovered iced coffee only less than a couple of years ago?! Now it’s the main thing I love about the weather getting hot; caffeine plus ice cubes is totally on the higher top of my favourite and most refreshing summer drinks. I said I was going to try and cut coffee out of my diet, but truth is that caffeine is probably my only food disobeying and treat I indulge in, and that’s nothing more energizing to me than a glass of coffee as first thing in the morning.
One thing I am actually cutting out of my diet is dairy milk, so I said goodbye to classic dairy iced lattes quite a long time ago, but to be completely honest, I’m not regretting the choice at all, as it made me discover there’re things surely more delicious of dairy milk from the plant world! Since I’ve discovered this iced coffee combination, I literally daydream of that time of the day when I indulge in one… it’s that good. Just saying. For your reference.
Serves 1 || Ingredients ::
2 espresso coffee shots
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons raw brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
Almond milk & ice cubes
Mix cocoa and raw sugar into a glass, then add chilled coffee and cool almond milk as desired. Add 3 or 4 ice cubes to serve and enjoy cool! As simple as that.
I love how flavours blend together awesomely and how energizing this drink is! Definitely an afternoon or late morning treat for hot summer days (and we’re having quite a few of those here in Italy recently)!
How do you like your iced coffee? x
