Recipe: Give a cold twist to your loved coffee and make cafe style coffee at home
Intro: Summer is at its peak and nothing beats the heat more than a drink with lots of ice. While you must be trying your hands at different mocktails with seasonal fruits and a generous helping of crushed ice, already, we recommend you give your coffee a twist. Lavazza, the Italian coffee brand, shares three recipes for a creamy and chocolaty sip, and all you need to do is throw in some ice-cream, vanilla essence or chocolate syrup, and we bet you can make café style drinks at home.
Vanilla Iced Latte
1 espresso cup of coffee (mocha pot)
150 ml milk
2 tablespoons vanilla syrup
6/8 coffee (mocha pot) ice cubes
To prepare the coffee ice cubes, take the ice moulds and pour in the coffee.
It is important not to sweeten the coffee otherwise it will not freeze.
Fill a 300 ml glass with the coffee ice cubes and pour in 250 ml of milk.
Prepare, then dissolve the vanilla syrup into the coffee.
Then pour it over the milk and the ice.
Your Vanilla Iced Latte is ready!

2 cups of ice-cream (chocolate preferably) or frozen yoghurt
