So summer is here, and though I am battling the heat, I am loving the fact that now I can have Cold Coffee without any inhibitions! Coffee Love all the way! <3
So, when cold coffee = life, and you have to have it almost every day, you need to come up with a way to make it a bit healthy, without compromising on the way it taste. Here's my way of making it :
Now, I know traditionally a good cold coffee has ice cream and cream and all things fattening in it, but there is a way to get that thick creamy consistency without sipping on all that extra calories.
What you need it to make 1 glass:
- Milk (half the glass/cup)
- Ice cubes (2-3 medium/large ones)
- Coffee decoction ( I use the one by Beanstalk and Leaves...their coffee is fab! Know more about them here).
Take your jar/cup and measure half a cup of milk in it. Transfer it in the mixer jar (Blenders won't be as effective. A traditional mixer works so much better). Throw in 2-3 cubes of ice.
I take 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons of sugar and coffee decoction each (this depends on your personal preference, it can alter this quantity if you prefer it sweeter or stronger).
Now blend! Blend for a while, until the ice cubes are completely dissolved. Blend away!
If you have done it properly, you will find a while lot of beautiful thick froth on top and a nice thick consistency. Once done, transfer it in a cute jar and sip away!
Optional : Decorate the sides of the jar with chocolate sauce to oomph it up.
You can use instant coffee powder if you do not have access to brewed coffee decoction.
Go ahead and try it out. If you make it and like it, do let us know :)
