Iced Coffee, 3 Ways

When the days get warmer, I like to swap my steaming morning cup of coffee for something a little more refreshing. Preparing my own cold brew is the perfect cool down and still gives me the pep in my step that I need to conquer the day. I usually add a splash of almond milk and a pinch of sweetener to my iced coffee, but lately I’ve been making my routine cup of joe a little more decadent…

If you’re a fan of almond milk, whipped coconut cream, and a dash of cinnamon, then these lovely libations are for you. As much as I love a sweet drink, I wanted to keep these recipes flavorful yet health-conscious (meaning not too much added sugar). Keep scrolling to see how my team and I concocted delicious iced coffee, three ways…

Cacao Mocha with Coconut Cream

I only have one word to describe this cacao mocha: delicious. The rich chocolate flavor pairs perfectly with the creaminess of the whipped coconut cream. This cup of coffee is a chocolate and coconut lover’s dream.

For the whipped coconut cream:

1. Start by refrigerating a can of coconut milk overnight as well as a metal mixing bowl so that they are both extra chilly in the morning.
2. Pour the coconut milk into the mixing bowl and beat until the coconut milk turns into a cream.

For the iced coffee:

1. Begin by adding a spoonful of cacao powder to the bottom of your glass.
2. Pour coffee over ice and mix the three ingredients together.
3. Top your cacao mocha off with a dollop of coconut cream and you’re ready to enjoy.

  • Woah, this is amazing! Definitely want to try this 🙂

  • Samantha

    But WHERE are those glasses from??

  • I switch to cold brew in the summer too. Sometimes while ordering out I like to go for the coffee ice cream that is so popular here in Japan. I know it’s not healthy, but it’s a nice treat! Coconut cream seams like it would be a good alternative, I wonder if you can freeze it perhaps in ice cube trays!

  • I’m obsessed with iced coffee! I can’t wait to try these.
