Every summer, there are some fast food restaurants (which I won't name! Hihi) line up to get a decadent iced coffee, but oh! How full of calories, sugar and bad fat!
And now summer is drawing to a close, but I like to stretch it my way, when a little heat and sun is still showing.
Here are some ideas to make you a homemade version, more economical, so much healthier, and just as fast, if not more because we save the line! Nothing more practical on rushed mornings !!!
1 t. ofcold brew cold brew coffee
½ cup of milk / vegetable drink of your choice (my choice is an unsweetened almond drink)
1 C. maple syrup (to adjust to taste)
1/8 c. almond essence tea
Oh and for the sportsmen of this world who take a protein shake in the morning try adding a chocolate protein scoop to the recipe, without adding the maple syrup!
Cold Brew coffee has the advantage of being brewed on your own! Just drop the coffee bag in 1 cup of water in the fridge the night before. The next morning, by pure magic, you get a frankly delicious black coffee, and not a cup of coffee that tastes nothing.
You just have to mix the ingredients, and we taste a little delight here!
The options are endless!!! Maple syrup can be replaced by stevia, date sugar, you can truncate the almond essence with cocoa (passing through a blender to dissolve it), an essence of caramel, coconut, y add a touch of whipped cream or whipped coconut and cocoa powder topping!
You will give me the news!!!
