We all know that I really like coffee.
I was a barista at my favorite local coffee shop in college, which had been a job I’d wanted to have since I first started frequenting little coffee shops. Usually, I just want a cup of black coffee, but every once in a while I like to pick up a not-too-sweet latte over ice. A few years ago, I started freezing my leftover coffee (I make mine pretty strong) and throwing together the easiest light latte on my way out the door every morning. Instead of the heavy, overly sweetened latte you’d get if you ordered one, I found that pouring chocolate or vanilla almond milk over my coffee cubes makes a delicious little latte, and it gets stronger as the cubes melt! (I tend forget about my coffee and let it sit on my desk for a while when I’m working, so this is perfect for me.)
Seriously, though, this is so easy that it’s not even really a recipe. Just pour strong coffee (cooled to room temp) into your favorite ice cube tray and freeze it over night. The next day, fill a glass with coffee cubes, and then top it off with your favorite flavor of almond milk (or coconut, if that’s your thing). I prefer to make my light latte with unsweetened chocolate almond milk, it’s got a nice little cocoa flavor without being overly sweet.
