Cafe Frappé – Cold Coffee

Cold Coffee or Iced Coffee is a popular drink in many cafes and restaurants. It’s very refreshing for the hot summer. Though I am not a coffee lover, I locoffe when it’s served cold. Making cold coffee at home is very easy. All you need is some brewed coffee, milk, ice and some whipped cream (optional). You can skip the whipped cream, if you want to avoid some extra calories. You can have double shot or even less coffee depending on how strong you want it to be. Use your imagination and squeeze some caramel or chocolate syrup before serving.Enjoy the homemade Coffee!!

Preparation time: 5 to 6 minutes

No. of servings: 3


  • Ice cubes – 1/2 cup
  • Cold milk – 2 cups
  • Refrigerated strongly brewed coffee or black coffee – 1/4 cup (adjust to taste)
  • Sugar – 5 tbsp
  • one small can of fresh whipped cream or 1/2 pint of heavy whipping cream
  • Instant coffee powder – 1/2 tsp

Method of Preparation:

I used 2% milk and ready whipped cream. You can also make fresh whipped cream at home by beating a cup of heavy whipping cream and 2 tbsp of sugar with an electric mixer until a stiff peak is formed. You can add a dollop to your cold coffee or fill it in a piping bag and squeeze on top of ur cold coffee.  Adjust the sugar level and black coffee according to your taste.

  1. Prepare black coffee and when it comes to room temperature, refrigerate it for about two hours or overnight.
  2. Blend milk, brewed coffee and sugar in a blender until a frothy mixture is formed.
  3. Now transfer this to a serving glass half filled with a few ice cbes.
  4. Top it with whipped cream and sprinkle some instant coffee powder on top.
