Its summer that means out with the hot stuff and in with cool and refreshing eats and drinks. I know Iced coffee is quite the hot stuff in the blog world these days and really if you want to save money it is always better to make your own. Not many of you know but I have to share this today, I have been a recovering Sbuxx addict for the past few days and the only thing that keeps me sane is my iced coffee. It costs fraction in comparison and tastes a really good. (but lets be real, SBUXX lattes are amazing). And the most convincing and promising thing for me is that the husband loves it too. He does not like coffee that much, in fact he’ll just ignore the coffee if I am brewing some and stick to water with breakfast, but ever since he has tasted my iced coffee, he demands one! No kidding my friends.
I mean my technique is very similar to Averie’s and Tina’s, the only difference- I use Almond milk in my iced coffee, vanilla flavor is the best. The reason for using almond milk is quite simple actually, it is less thick so it can froth better by my manual technique. All you need for frothing is a wire whisk. If you are using a small one like me, you can do a rolling action between your palms (as shown in the pic below) to create the froth by adding the milk and sweetener to the cup. Once all whisked up, add the brewed coffee to a tall glass, next add the frothed milk and spoon in the remaining froth that refuses to come out of the cup. Finally finish with ice and there you have it, a cold refreshing coffee!
This just shows that you don’t need any specialized gadget to froth your coffee, a simple wire whisk will do the job!
