We are under extreme heat alert. Toronto is sizzling! At 9:30 am the temperature already reached 30 C and factoring in the humidity if felt close to 40 C. A tall glass of iced cold coffee in a morning is my remedy for this scorching hot weather. I make my iced coffee with almond milk. I switched to it over 7 years ago and never looked back Here’s another twist; – any grocery store offers almond milk in different varieties, regular, vanilla, chocolate, sweetened and unsweetened. All delicious and you can create different flavours. OR Try your milk over frozen coffee ice cubes!
The version below is kind to your waistline (and your wallet)
- 1 small espresso
- 1/2 cup of almond milk, unsweetened
- ice cubes
- Brew a pot of espresso.
- Fill the glass with as much ice as will fit and add the cold milk.
- Add espresso and stir to combine.
- Refrigerate any leftovers for later.
