Cold Coffee

Why am I writing this simple a post? Sometimes, when I and my husband are very tired and hungry after a hard day's work...I have just one question in my mind- what to make which will be energizing, quick, and requires minimum effort to prepare? We both are not regular coffee drinkers but enjoy cold coffee on hot summer evenings. During my college days, I and my sister used to reach home at around 4 in the afternoon and would usually make cold coffee with cream biscuits. I usually use Nescafe instant coffee to make cold coffee.

2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
2 cups cold milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

sugar for taste

crushed ice


Blend all the ingredients well and serve. To make it more rich, you can use 25% half and half milk and 75 % whole milk. Or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the cold coffee while serving, instead of the vanilla extract. If you like cinnamon, then add a pinch of cinnamon powder to enhance the flavor. Enjoy the chilled coffee.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
