Creamy Italian Iced Coffee, nothing better than a cold iced coffee in the summer time heat. Tall glasses drizzled with chocolate syrup and then filled with a cold creamy ice coffee. Italian Iced Coffee, the perfect heat breaker.
I’m heading into my last week and to tell the truth I don’t know if I am sad or happy. Sad because I hate saying goodbye to everyone and I always wonder how long it will be before I make it back again, and happy because I am looking forward to seeing my family and friends in a country that has now become my home.
There are always so many stories about all the warm welcome back from animals to their human friends and I wonder, will Leone, Snoopy and George be excited to see me as much as I am to see them?
In the last two months I have seen more of this amazing city that is Toronto then I have probably in any of my previous visits. My daughter and I have walked and walked and walked all over the place.
We have probably tried more coffees and iced coffees then most Torontonians do on a weekly basis.
But I must say we haven’t found yet an iced coffee that measures up to the one my friend’s husband makes for us back home in Italy. Could it be the coffee? Maybe!
I find that the stronger the coffee is the better it tastes. I really like to taste the coffee and there’s no need to add any kind of sweetener to it.
Creamy Italian Iced Coffee
So after a really bad iced coffee experience, I thought “that’s it, I’m making my own.” This Italian Iced Coffee is the best and a few of my volunteers (a.k.a my daughter, sister and niece) have expressed their approval by asking me to make it over and over for the last few days.
I have been making it in fact with decaffeinated coffee and it is as delicious as the caffeinated version. So take your Italian iced coffee out onto your deck or backyard lounge, put up your feet and have a sip, you can thank me later. Salute!
- 1/2 cup espresso coffee (or really strong coffee) 125 grams
- 1/2 cup cream 125 grams
- 1 cup 2% milk 250 grams
- 5-6 ice cubes
- 1 teaspoon sugar (or to taste) 4 grams
Place all of the above into a blender , then blend for 10-15 seconds (or until desired consistency is reached) pour into glasses, top with some foam and serve on ice if desired. Enjoy!
