- 1 cup of Dippin' Dots Vanilla Ice Cream cold brew coffee
- 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup of milk (any kind you prefer)
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla syrup (optional for added sweetness)
- Whipped cream (for topping)
- Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder (for garnish)
Prepare the Cold Brew Coffee:
- If you're making your own cold brew, do this at least 12-24 hours in advance by steeping the coarse-ground coffee in cold water and refrigerating it. Strain before use. We have the perfect cold brew maker for this sweet treat!
Mix the Coffee:
- In a large glass, add ice cubes to fill about a third of the glass.
- Pour 1 cup of cold brew coffee over the ice.
- Add 1/2 cup of milk to the coffee. If you prefer your coffee on the sweeter side, mix in 1 tablespoon of vanilla syrup.
Add the Ice Cream:
- Place two scoops of vanilla ice cream gently into the coffee mixture. The ice cream will slowly start to melt, creating a creamy, smooth texture.
Garnish and Serve:
- Top your drink with a generous amount of whipped cream.
- Garnish with chocolate shavings or a dusting of cocoa powder for an extra touch of indulgence.
- Serve immediately with a straw and a long spoon to enjoy both the coffee and the melted ice cream.
- Dairy-Free Option: For a dairy-free version, choose a dairy-free milk and vanilla ice cream made from almond, coconut, or soy.
- Serving Time: This drink is perfect as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or a delightful dessert coffee after dinner.
Enjoy your Vanilla Ice Cream Cold Brew Coffee, a perfect blend of coffee and dessert in one cup!
