Five Ways to Enjoy Iced Coffee

Switch up your cold brew coffee with one of these fun favorites including coffee popsicles and granita.

I love my iced coffee. This summer I decided to experiment and switch up my daily cold brew in a few new ways. Below are my 5 favorites.

Five Ways to Enjoy Iced Coffee

Iced Coffee Granita

This cool treat could also double as an elegant dessert. Use a ratio of 4 parts cold-brew coffee concentrate to 1 part condensed milk (i.e. to make this batch I used 2 cups of coffee and 1/2 a cup of condensed milk). Whisk together until well combined and there are no clumps of condensed milk left. Pour into a medium-sized baking dish and freeze until solid, about 2 hours. Scrape with a fork and serve. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.

Coffee and Cream Cubes

Freeze coffee into one ice cube tray then fill another tray with either cream, milk, coconut or almond milk or a mixture of any of those and freeze until set. Add a few to a glass of cold brew and let them melt without watering down the coffee.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Use a ratio of 1 part condensed milk + 2 parts coffee. Pour condensed milk into the bottom of a glass (I like to use a mason jar) then top with hot coffee. Stir to combine (if you’re using a mason jar put the lid on then shake). Top with ice and serve.
