Who doesn’t love iced coffee in the summer time?! We are huge coffee drinkers year round, and I have a confession to make–I drink iced coffee year round! Yes that’s right–no hot coffee for me, even when it’s the winter and -20 degrees outside!
I just really love a great iced coffee drink, and you know what they say, variety is the spice of life! That’s why I’ve decided to share my favourite iced coffee recipes: a deliciously rich Caramel Machiatto, a light and refreshing Vanilla Latte and an Iced Mocha with real chocolate and coffee ice cubes.
Iced Caramel Machiatto
The trick to this recipe is making the thick, rich Dulce de Leche caramel, and pouring in the coffee delicately over the milk. To make the Dulce de Leche, simply boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for 3 hours in a large pot of gently boiling water. This is the secret ingredient of this special drink.
Iced Vanilla Latte
This latte is a delicious and refreshing combination made with 2% milk and fresh vanilla bean, along with frozen coffee ice cubes. That’s right–just freeze some of your coffee in ice cube trays and add to your iced coffee drink to avoid it getting watered down.
If you’re feeling especially ambitious, you could mix in some nutella in place of half of the chococlate ice cubes in order to make an iced Hazelnut Mocha. I’m a big fan of the original though–a tasty cool dessert in a glass!
