How to make frozen coffee
Making frozen coffee is super easy, although it will take a long time if you haven’t already frozen the coffee.
Start by making one cup of black coffee, then pour it into an ice cube tray and place it in the freezer.
You will need to wait several hours for the coffee to freeze. Make sure that the cubes are fully frozen, all the way through.
Once the coffee is frozen, simply add the coffee cubes to your blender along with all of the other ingredients.
Blend and enjoy!
Read these tips to ensure this recipe comes out perfectly!
- Make sure the coffee cubes are completely frozen. Sometimes it looks like they are frozen on top, but they aren't frozen all the way through yet. Take one cube out first to check that it is completely frozen. If you blend everything with coffee cubes that aren't completely frozen, you will get a thinner texture as opposed to a thick, icy texture.
- Start by adding just ½ cup of oat milk to your blender. After blending, check the consistency of your frozen coffee and add a bit more oat milk if needed. If you don’t add enough oat milk, this frozen coffee will be super thick and icy and it may be difficult to drink it through a straw. But if you add too much oat milk your frozen coffee may end up being too thin. So make sure you add additional oat milk slowly, then blend and test the texture. I find ½ cup + 2 tablespoons to be the ideal amount of oat milk.
- You can omit the peanut butter if you’d like, but I really think it takes this frozen coffee to the next level!
- If you want a sweeter drink, go ahead and add some more maple syrup or another sweetener that you enjoy.
