There’s no need to be hot to crave a hefty Iced Coffee. It’s not necessary for you to travel to a cafe shop when you could make it in your own kitchen. It’s all it takes is a bit of planning.

What is the best way to prepare iced tea?
It’s easy, really. You’ll need an oversized glass containing the ice, brewed coffee, as well as Vanilla syrup (if you want). Mix everything together, and voila! The perfect glass of home-cooked, simple cold coffee.
If you’re really interested in taking the plunge, then you can make it by shaking it with shakers. Add all your ingredients and shake as if you were making the way you would shake a cocktail. Imagine it as the non-alcoholic espresso martini!
What’s the Difference Between Iced Coffee and Cold Brew?
Iced coffee is created from regular hot coffee, which is chilled before being served frozen.
Cold brew, on the other hand, is produced by steeping the grounds in warm water for a concentrated coffee that is then required to dilute using milk or water. It is not heated to make the coffee concentrate, so it does not contain the bitter taste of the iced coffee.

Coffee is 100% vegan, and by using these options that contain plants, there’s no reason to miss this delicious milky iced latte ever again. The following brands are designed and intended for barista coffees. As such, they’re heavier and more creamy when steaming and taste delicious cold too.
Oat milk is my favorite dairy-free choice to have with my coffee. I would recommend Oatly’s oatmeal milk or Minor Figures oat milk. Oatly offers a very rich, full-mouthed feel. It’s somewhat more viscous, whereas Minor Figures is a little lighter and more vibrant – but they also make it from the UK. You can choose based on your preferences. Small Figures Oat works well with dark coffee roasts. However, I enjoy both.
