Rich, creamy, and totally diet-busting, this icy beverage is one of my favorite things to order while eating out. Thankfully, it is blissfully easy (and cheeeeap!) to make at home.
And yes, I totally took these pictures outside because the light showed off the coffee better. Pretend you don’t notice that, kay?
If you don’t count the optional ice cubes, it only requires three ingredients: coffee, sweetened and condensed milk, and heavy cream.
You don’t have to serve it over ice (though it is prettier that way), but do make sure it is very, very cold. Add a bendy straw for extra fun!
- 8 cups of homebrewed coffee
- 1 can of sweetened and condensed milk
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- Pour coffee, sweetened and condensed milk, and heavy cream into a large beverage container.
- Whisk until well combined.
- Refrigerate until very cold, at least 4 hours (overnight is better).
- Serve and enjoy!
