Top 5 iced coffees to make at home
At L’OR, we absolutely love iced coffees. Especially on a hot summer’s day. What could be better than an ice cold beverage delivering your daily shot of caffeine? We are giving you five tips to make your favourite iced coffee at home. It’s easier than you think.
Homemade iced coffee
How to make iced coffee at home? There are many variations of iced coffee, so let’s start with the most basic, easy recipe. All you need is your favourite coffee, ice cubes and milk. Prepare a cup of coffee, for example L’OR Espresso Forza, Onyx or Ristretto and refrigerate. When the coffee is cold enough, take it back out of the fridge. Put the ice cubes into a tall glass and pour the coffee over the ice cubes. Add milk. You can add more or less depending on your taste preference. You can also add sugar or other sweeteners to make the iced coffee sweeter. Serve and enjoy.
Vegan iced coffee with almond milk or coconut milk
Try a different kind of milk for a twist on your usual iced coffee. By using a milk alternative, you can make a vegan iced coffee. Great news: it tastes delicious. An iced almond coffee is made using almond milk. It has a nutty taste and the almond milk prolongs the coffee flavour. Vegan, dairy-free and low in calories. A must try! Brew a cup of your favourite espresso. Let it cool down for at least 15 minutes (or refrigerate) and add half a cup of almond milk. Add as many ice cubes as you like. Your almond iced coffee is now ready. Looking for an iced coffee with a taste of summer? Try this recipe for iced coffee with coconut milk. A successful combination.
