A delicious and refreshing recipe for vegan iced coffee made latte style with almond milk and using frozen coffee cubes.
What is iced coffee?
Iced coffee is simply coffee but served cold.
Coffee can be brewed cold (usually called cold brew) which doesn't need cooling. Alternatively it can be brewed however you usually make your coffee and left to cool
Making iced coffee with frozen coffee cubes
In summer I like to freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays so I can quickly make iced coffee on a hot day.
If truth be told, sometimes I make extra coffee just so I can freeze it.
Whether you're making extra coffee on purpose or simply freezing the leftovers at the bottom of a cafetiere freezing coffee in ice cubes is a great way to avoid wasting it.
What if you don't have time to freeze coffee in ice cubes?
If you don't have time or have run out of frozen coffee cubes you can make ice coffee by simply brewing coffee however you usually do.
Leave it to cool then follow these steps:
- fill a glass with ice cubes
- pour over your cold coffee
- top up with plant based milk of your choice or enjoy black if preferred
- add a straw (paper or reusable are best)
Which milk is best to make vegan iced latte?
I prefer using almond milk in my vegan iced coffee. In fact almond milk poured over frozen coffee cubes is my favourite summer drink at the moment. Almond milk lattes rock - trust me!
However you can use any type of plant based milk. I like it with oat milk or hemp milk but you could also use soy or a milk of your preference.
Alternatively you could have your iced coffee without milk.
