It’s probably not quite the same everywhere, but here in Italy we’re literally experiencing Summer at its fullest potential, which is not extremely positive if you don’t have a pool or the sea a couple of steps out of reach. But what better excuse to have a few too many glasses of iced coffee if not the heat? … And the fact I need to find some extra energies somewhere or there’s no way I’ll get through these extremely busy working days?
But really, I don’t even need excuses anymore! Nor do you, even if you live somewhere where Mother Nature hasn’t got the memo just yet! It’s Summer after all, right?
Plus I’ve been making the most delicious, sweet, vanilla-ry iced coffee you’ve ever dreamt of, and, yes, a couple of times a day doesn’t even feel enough anymore. Keep reading if you’re after something addictive…
- 4-5 ice cubes
- 200ml vanilla soy milk*
- 1 shot of coffee
- 1 teaspoon raw brown sugar
- * Or use classic soy milk or any non-dairy milk of your choice and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
01 :: Place the ice cubes in a tall glass and pour in the vanilla soy milk to fill 3/4 of the glass.
02 :: Make your coffee and stir in the brown sugar when still warm - do not add the sugar in the tall glass in the end or it won't melt.
03 :: Pour the sugared coffee in the tall glass all at once and use a straw to stir the layers together until uniform. Enjoy!
And that’s, in a nutshell, what I’ve been basically feeding myself with for the last few weeks (not literally, but quite similarly!). It’s so simple, quick but amazingly delicious that you really *HAVE* to give it a go yourself!
