Introduction: Easy Thai Iced Coffee

Picture of Easy Thai Iced Coffee

I couldn't believe that there was not an iced coffee instructable. So I thought I would write up my recipe for quick easy thai style iced coffee.

Thai iced coffee uses sweetened and condensed milk, however I dont usually keep cans of it around the house. I use my grandmothers process to make easy sweetened condensed milk and since it is basically Measure pour and shake. The hard way is to cook down milk in a pan while adding sugar and stirring while simmering until 1/4 of the volume has evaporated.

I make my iced Coffee in a 1 Quart mason jar. If you are outside of the 5 countries that still use the Imperial measuring system, I have approximates for metric measurement in brackets. Yes I am using liquid measuring cups for volumetric measures.

List of ingredients,

3 Cups coffee (750ml)
1 Cup 2% Milk (250ml)
1/3 Cup Powdered Milk (80ml)
6 Tablespoons Sugar (90ml)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (15ml)

Take your coffee and fill your quart container 3/4 full, add all the dry ingredients, top off with 2% milk and the vanilla extract.

Cap your container shake, pour over ice and enjoy.

Sounds delicious. I will have to give it a try next week, when we are supposed to finally get some summer heat here. Here being Ontario, Canada, where it has been mostly wet and cold enough to need to close the windows at night all through June.

I have also taken to tossing a splash of almond extract in the jar. I just cant toss stuff if there is a use for it. Hmmm room temp coffee... ICE IT!.

Protip if you want a mocha before putting it over the rocks add hersheys syrup to taste.

Oh, I just drink the coffee as is, whatever the temp. Just as long as it's not decaf.

Thanks for the tips. I used to work in a place that served frozen coffee drinks, so I have experimented quite a bit. I can duplicate most of beverages sold in coffee shops and fast food places here, for a fraction of the cost. But I'm too lazy to clean out the freezer and make room for the ice cube trays. I will try to make the effort in the coming days. It would be nice to make some for my mom.
