Iced coffee: a drink with many options

Before starting you have to know that there is no unique and exclusive way to prepare iced coffee. There are many variants to prepare.

Some people prefer to cool their coffee by placing it in the fridge. Others prefer to add ice to create this effect. The option you choose will depend on your taste and the accessories you want to add to your preparation, such as caramel, cream or ice cream.


The most popular version of this style of coffee is the well-known frappuccino. It is the cold version of the popular cappuccino to which slush ice, caramel syrup and cream are added.

Recipe and ideas for preparing

To prepare your frappuccino, all you need is a coffee maker. In case you don’t have it, you can use your blender. That’s right! Are you ready? Go for it!

Frappuccino in the blender

Brew your coffee as usual or choose to make an espresso. Then, add it to the blender with crushed ice, milk or milk foam and the amount of sugar or sweetener of your choice.

Blend everything for a few minutes and it is ready to drink.

If you want to add a more delicious touch, you can top the coffee with cream or whipped cream, caramel, chocolate or ice cream.

With this recipe you will get a coffee with a slush texture. If you don’t like the texture, you can prepare the coffee and let it cool, then pour it into a glass with ice, add milk, sugar, ice cream or cream.

You will love the result.
