Tip for easy iced coffee

Danish recipe below..

I love coffee – the taste and that special feeling you get sitting with a nice cup of warm coffee. I only drink one cup a day, and I don’t do it to get energy, but simply because I like it. If I drink more than one cup I really can’t sleep at night, not so nice.

But during the summer the hot drink gets almost too hot. So iced coffee is the perfect solution!! BUT,  I am simply too lazy to make a cup and wait for it to cool down, I don’t like to cool it down with ice cubes (it makes it thinner and it just gets tepid and not really iced), and I don’t like to pay overprize for the extremely sweet ones you can buy in cafés. So what to do?

 

This is so easy that it’s almost not a recipe. And maybe so easy tIMG_3135hat you already thought of it and use it every day. BUT in case you don’t, I will share with you my sacred summer coffee tip.

The only problem with this tip is that you need to prepare it the night before you can use it, but then you have for a looong time of ice coffee (of course depending on how much you actually drink).

You can actually use it for all sort of things – n’icecream, chocolate coffee mousse, cookies. Literally only your imagination and taste buds set the limit.

 

Coffee “extract” 

Gives approxx 10 glasses of iced coffee

  • 2 L cold water
  • 125 g coffee (I grounded my favorit beans, use whatever you have or prefere)

Mix together in a big bowl, leave in the frigde over night (at least 8 hours) to infuse, strain it through af coffee filter, put in to a glas container and store in the fridge. That’s it, you now have perfect coffee ready for delicious iced coffee.

To make ice coffee: Mix approx half coffee with half plant mylk (or what ever milk you prefere), depending on your preferences. Add sweetener to your taste (agave, honey, sirup, sugar etc).

Oh and another tip: Freeze some of the coffee to icecubes, it looks cool with the dark cubes in the drink.

 

Enjoy, but don’t forget the greens

 

Kaffe”ektrakt”

  • 2 L koldt vand
  • 125 g kaffe (jeg kværnede mine favoritbønner, men brug hvad du har og foretrækker)

Bland kaffe og vand i en stor skål, rør det godt sammen, lad det trække i køleskabet natten over (mindst 8 timer), si det gennem et kaffefilter, hæld på en glasflaske. Opbevares på køl. Det var det – nu har du altid lækker kold kaffe klar på køl til når trangen melder sig.

For at lave selve iskaffen: Bland ca. halv kaffe med halv plantemylk (eller din foretrukne mælk) – her må du prøve dig lidt frem og finde frem til de mængder der virker for dig. Smag til med sødning efter eget valg (agave, honning, sirup, sukker osv).

Bonus tip: Frys noget af kaffe”ekstraktet” i isterninger, det ser godt ud med de mørke terninger 🙂

 

Hav en dejlig lørdag
