Iced coffee beverages are great, but it’s not so tempting when the ice starts to melt and dilutes the coffee. But for this recipe, that’s not going to happen! Wondering why? Well, that’s because instead of freezing water to make ice, we’re going to freeze coffee to make coffee ice cubes! What’s better is that you can store these coffee ice for as long as you want and it’s perfect for a quick caffeine fix.


  • 2 cups of coffee
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk



Make 2 cups of your usual black coffee and put aside to cool slightly. Once it is cooled, pour the coffee into ice cube trays and freeze overnight. Now, all you need to do is pop 4-6 coffee ice cubes in a glass and pour warm milk over it.
