Intro: Arctic Joe (Frozen Coffee)
This blended coffee drink is a sweet and cold treat perfect for a hot and lazy summer afternoon. This recipe will fill a 12oz cup.
Step 1: A Chilly Wind Blows
First you need to make coffee ice cubes.
Pour the room temperature leftovers from your morning brew into an ice cube tray and freeze. I like to keep some in a zip-top bag in the freezer for a variety of uses.
These cubes are not only necessary for this blended drink but they are also fantastic for chilled coffee as these cubes don't dilute the coffee flavor. You could probably even make the cubes out of espresso if you want a really strong drink.
Step 2: Assemble
Place 10-12 coffee cubes into a blender.
Pour in 2/3 cup milk (or combination milk and cool coffee, if you like it stronger)
Add 1 Tbsp chocolate syrup (or more, if you insist)
Step 3: Blend
Blend until the cubes are broken down.
