How To Make The Best Vegan Iced Coffees

When the sun is blazing but you need to graft, or you’re seeking to get your caffeine fix during those hot summer days, or you simply feel like a cold comfort drink that packs a punch of energy, having a hot cup of coffee can seem far from ideal, and may even be uncomfortable to consume. On days like these, a cup of iced coffee can be the greatest treat to give.

Is Iced Coffee Creamy And Sweet?

Iced coffee doesn’t have to be creamy and it doesn’t have to be sweet. In fact, cold, sugar-free black coffee has become increasingly popular throughout the world. For these recipes, you will need:

Ingredients:

  • Tall glass
  • A single or double shot of espresso
  • Ice cubes
  • Coconut cream (optional)
  • Plant-based milk or another of your choice (optional)
  • Date or agave syrup, or a sweetener of your choice (optional)

How To Make Traditional Iced Coffee:

Fill the class to the brim with ice cubes.

Next, add the espresso shot and wait a while for it to cool.

Once the espresso is cooled, add in either weak, chilled black coffee, or add in half a cup of milk, two tablespoons of coconut cream and whatever sweetener you choose. If you’re wanting a dark coffee, then only use the weaker, chilled black coffee.

How To Make Iced Coffee With Coffee Cubes

Make a cup of black coffee with your strength preference. Add any sweetener now, too. We recommend agave syrup, date syrup or melted coconut sugar.

Once the coffee is cool, pour the coffee into an empty ice cube tray and freeze it overnight. 

Once fully frozen, fill a tall class with the cubes and fill the rest of the glass with a milk of your choice.

How To Make Crushed Ice Coffee

For this recipe, you’re going to need a strong blender that can crush ice.

Add in a double espresso shot, a tray of ice cubes, a cup of milk and two tablespoons of cream. Add sugar if you want it sweetened, and blend it all up.

If you’re feeling Starbucks-fomo, empty your iced coffee into a cup.

Add a can of coconut milk, a tablespoon of sugar and a few ice cubes to your blender. Blend until it froths, and add it on top of your coffee cup. Sprinkle cacao, cinnamon and turmeric on the top for the final touch.
