I don’t see nothing wrong with a latte bump and griiiind!
My obsession with iced lattes is well documented, particularly if you follow me on Instagram.
In one of my many Insta-snaps of what I’m doing/eating/drinking I featured a particularly good iced latte. A follower commented “oh, are those coffee ice cubes?”
They were not coffee ice cubes. They were just regular… ice… ice cubes. Leaking their watery nonsense into my glorious milky coffee.
The notion spread like wildfire in my mind. I was going to have to make my own coffee ice cubes and try this witchcraft for myself.
I made them, I made them again, and again and again. These are now my favourite caffeinated treat. So easy to whip up at home, and if you put them in a jar you can throw one in your bag for later!
You will need:
The best quality coffee you can get your paws on.
A silicone ice tray.
You’re best off making your coffee the night before you want these.
Add about four-five scoops coffee to your cafetiere, pour over about 4-5 cups boiling water.
Stir and leave for a few mins to mingle.
Push the plunger down when the water’s still hot and leave on the side to cool.
When the coffee’s cooled, pour it into your ice tray.
Place carefully in the freezer and chill over night.
Congratulations, you’ve got yourself some icebergs!
Warm the bottom and edges of the tray with some warm water and wiggle out your icebergs.
Beautiful, aren’t they?
Fill a jar with ’em.
And top up with milk.
Throw a couple of straws in and serve!
The coffee slowly seeps into the milk and gets stronger as you go. Every slurp is perfectly iced.
If you find you’ve gotten ahead of yourself and sucked up all the milk before your bergs have melted, just add a little more.
A never ending latte!
If you’re going to knock them up and take one out with you, just make sure the lid is screwed on properly and give it a shake before you open it again.
Of course you should feel free to espresso yourself and add a little chocolate powder if you wanna live La Vida Mocha.
Either way I think you’re going to like these a latte!
