Memorial Day is around the corner, and even though I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen except for washing dishes because of this little dude, I thought I’d pass along this basic frozen coffee drink “recipe.”
We had some leftover cold coffee from a pot we made and forgot about, so I froze it in an ice cube tray. The water here tastes nasty without a filter, and we don’t have a filter for our freezer ice maker yet, so we pretty much can’t make any frozen drinks with ice or it will have a funky taste. Enter, frozen coffee cubes.
So easy. So cheap. So wonderful. Or maybe I’m just easily impressed. But I already want another one.
I kind of just made it up as I went along and tossed stuff in, so these “measurements” (ha) are approximate.
- Entire tray (12 cubes) frozen coffee
- 1 Tbs cocoa powder
- 3-4 Tbs sugar
- 1-2 Tbs heavy cream
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk
You kind of just toss it all in the blender, but for those who prefer formal instructions:
- Empty frozen coffee cubes into a blender or food processor.
- Add remaining ingredients.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into cups.
- Insert straws.
I’ve already got another set of coffee ice cubes in the works from a pot of coffee I made solely for that purpose. My name is Hannah, and I might have a new favorite drink.
