Summer is still going strong in the Netherlands! And one of my favorite drinks in such beautiful/ very warm weather is iced coffee. However, when you get an iced coffee from Starbucks, supermarket or almost any other place it is loaded with sugar and calories. Unnecessary if you ask me… therefore I often make it myself and today I want to share one of my recipes with you!
Ingredients for 1 big Iced Coffee (500 ml):
- 1 cup of cold, strong coffee
- 1/2 cup of milk of choice, I like to use oat or almond milk
- 2 small blocks of (extra) dark chocolate
- approx. 1 teaspoon of agave syrup, or less/more depending on how sweet you like to have your ice coffee
- 1 cup of ice cubes
Put the blocks of dark chocolate in the blender and let it spin for until it turns into small chunks of chocolate. Then add the rest of the ingredients and turn the blender on for a minute or two, or until you are satisfied with the size of the ice cubes. And that is it actually! When transferring the drink into a glass the pieces of chocolate may sink to the bottom of the blender, but you can carefully scoop them out with a spoon. It is very easy to make, but just as delicious and way more healthier and natural than the average Iced Coffee.
