How to make Iced Coffee

Nowadays, there are many types of coffee and methods of preparation that are hot and delicious. But what if you need energy but at the same time you want to be refreshed on a hot summer morning? Good thing we got iced coffee!

Iced Coffee is my favorite, especially on hot days, when I need a coffee, but I prefer a refreshing one. We must also admit, properly prepared this can be both a coffee and a delicious dessert.

For this reason I decided to look for the best iced coffee recipes, but before we move on to the actual recipes, we have prepared some tips to help you prepare the best coffee.

  • Prepare the ice cubes from coffee. This way you will have the same cool result, but the coffee will not lose its taste and aroma due to the excessive dilution caused by the use of water ice cubes. 
  • Use coffee prepared with ice cream flavors, thus benefiting from a dose of caffeine and a delicious dessert.
  • Iced Coffee or Iced Latte comes out the most flavorful if the basic ingredients are prepared using a quality espresso machine.

Now that I have aroused your interest, here are the recipes:

  • Iced Cappuccino

  • ½ coffee cup
  • ½ cup of chocolate milk (use either a bought one or you can prepare it yourself from milk and cocoa)

As in the case of coffee sweetened using vanilla syrup, this recipe also begins with the instructions provided for the preparation of roasted coconut syrup. 

You will need:
