If you’re like me, and feel like your summer is getting shorter and shorter every day, then I’m sure that you’ve already started looking forward to autumn and winter. But if you’re in the mood for something a little different than just putting on some slippers and drinking hot cocoa or tea — something that will actually make your taste buds tingle — then try out these refreshing cold coffee recipes! These are all easy-to-make recipes that can be made at home without having to worry about heating up the kitchen or dealing with boiling water. Plus, they’ll give your taste buds a nice kick of sweetness (or bitterness) when mixed with cream or milk.
1. Classic Cold Coffee
Classic cold coffee is a strong drink that can be consumed by those who love coffee very much. First, freeze your filter coffee by pouring it into ice molds. Put the desired amount of coffee ice in your glass and add fresh filter coffee on it. If you think it will be too strong, you can add half of the fresh filter coffee and half of the water.
A recipe that you can make easily and quickly without the need for a blender. Put 3 glasses of milk, 4 teaspoons of instant coffee (Nescafe) and 2 teaspoons of sugar in a small jar and close the lid and shake for 5 minutes. Then, put as much ice and milk as you want in your glass and pour the coffee mixture in the jar, which has a foamy consistency, into the glass.
3. Caramel Frappuccino
First, pour 1 tablespoon of caramel into the glass you are going to drink. Then, put half a glass of milk, a quarter glass of cold filter coffee, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 8-9 pieces of ice in the blender. Pour your mixture into a glass with caramel. You can decorate with whipped cream and caramel. You can also increase or decrease the amount of optional coffee and sugar. You can also use Nescafe instead of filter coffee.
4. Banana Iced Coffee
Put 2 glasses of milk, 1.5 tablespoons of instant coffee, 1 frozen banana and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream through the blender and put into the glass. You can decorate it however you want.
5. Cold Coffee with Nutella
Mix 8-10 pieces of ice, 1 glass of milk, 2 tablespoons of Nutella and 1 tablespoon of coffee in a blender. You can also pour Nutella into your glass. Pour the prepared mixture into the glass. You can garnish with whipped cream.
6. Cinnamon Orange Cold Coffee
Prepare your classic cold coffee. Put ice cubes in a large glass. Squeeze the juice of a quarter of an orange and put a slice of orange into the glass. Warm one or two cinnamon sticks with your hand, place them in the glass and add the cold coffee you have prepared on it. You can add a pinch of coconut sugar and cinnamon powder to your coffee.
7. Ice Mocha
Put 25 mg of cocoa powder, 60 mg of espresso, 4-5 ice cubes and 250 ml of milk in the blender and blend for about 20 seconds. If you want your coffee to be sweeter, you can apply chocolate sauce inside your glass. Also, don’t forget to serve with whipped cream on top.
8. Cold Coffee with Ice Cream
Blend 1 tablespoon of instant coffee (Nescafe), 1 glass of cold milk, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream. After you pour the mixture you prepared into a glass, add the desired amount of ice on it. You can garnish with whipped cream.
This cold coffee recipe is a combination of vanilla ice cream, coffee, sugar and cream. It’s topped off with whipped cream. The idea is to make a simple drink that tastes like it’s been made at home (because you probably have everything on hand).
The basic ingredients for this drink are:
Vanilla Ice Cream – About 4 cups (1 quart) or 2 pints.* Sugar – About 1 cup.* Milk – 1/2 cup (1 stick) thickened cream cheese also works well here.* Whipped Cream – 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream plus whatever extra goes into making your own whipped topping if desired
