When the sun is shining, and you’re in the mood for a caffeinated pick-me-up that’s both cooling and delicious, iced coffee is the answer. This simple iced coffee recipe is the perfect way to enjoy your daily caffeine fix while staying refreshed.

Cold Coffee


  • 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee (hot or cold)
  • 1/2 cup of milk (whole milk, skim milk, almond milk, or your choice)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla coffee syrup(optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for garnish (optional)


  1. Brew Your Coffee:

You can use hot or cold brew coffee for your iced coffee. If using hot coffee, let it cool down to room temperature before proceeding.

  1. Add Sweetness:

In a glass, add 2-3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk. Adjust the amount based on your desired sweetness level. You can also add sugar or your preferred sweetener if you prefer.

  1. Add Ice:

Fill the glass with ice cubes. The more ice, the colder your iced coffee will be.

  1. Pour in Coffee:

Pour the freshly brewed coffee over the ice and sweetened condensed milk. If you’re using hot coffee, the ice will cool it down quickly.

  1. Add Milk:

Pour the milk of your choice over the coffee and ice. Adjust the amount of milk to achieve your desired coffee-to-milk ratio.

  1. Add Flavour (Optional):

For extra flavour, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla syrups or any flavoured syrups you prefer.

  1. Stir Well:

Stir everything together until the sweetened condensed milk is fully incorporated, and your iced coffee is well mixed.

  1. Garnish (Optional):

If you like, top your iced coffee with whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shavings or cocoa powder for an extra indulgent touch.

  1. Enjoy:

Grab a straw or a long spoon, give your iced coffee one last stir, and savor the delicious blend of coffee, sweetness, and creaminess.

This iced coffee recipe is a simple yet delightful way to enjoy your coffee on a warm day or whenever you crave something cold and caffeinated. Customise it to your taste, and you’ll have a refreshing drink that keeps you cool and caffeinated throughout the day. Enjoy! ☕❄️😊
