Coffilicious Cold Coffee – A must for all Coffee Lovers!!!

Coffee – The name itself conjures up the word “comfort”  and all thats nice …Love for coffee has been something that runs in my family. When I was in school, my mom had barred me from having coffee as the staple drink in the morning. When I was into  higher secondary,  I started on having coffee in the mornings. Maduraiamma would  scoop out coffee from the sole coffee canister and press it in to the coffee filter. Thereafter pour piping cups of water and drain out the precocious decoction and collect it in an air tight container vessel which would lock the flavour of the decoction until the next morning. Her coffee was something awesome, the kind that wakes u up and prepares you for the day ahead…. Thick decoction poured in to milk boiled on the stove to perfection with just the right amount of sugar in it. I have never felt the need to add more sugar or to alter the prepared taste of her coffee.

My husband is also a coffee lover and had been wanting to have cold coffee as he was on liquid diet because of teeth extraction. I used to love cold coffee from Geetha Cafe, in T.Nagar. They have a way of making it so deliciously coffeeish with the right amount of ice cream and milk and sugar. They serve in their tall glasses with a lot of cream on top!!!

INGREDIENTS:

3 scoops of Trader Joe`s Coffee  Ice Cream (Vanilla Ice Cream should do too).

1/8 cup of Coffee Decoction from percolator.

1 spoon of Sugar.

1/2 cup of milk.

Low fat Cream for topping. (Optional).

1/3 spoon of Arabica Instant Coffee Powder for topping.(Optional).

Cold Coffee1

PREPARATION:

  • In a blender add the 3 scoops of Ice Cream, Decoction, sugar and half of the milk.
  • Give it a quick pulse and also make sure that the contents of the blender do not splash out.
  • This is the reason we are not adding all the milk upfront.
  • When the contents are well whisked, add the remaining milk and give it a quick pulse.
  • Pour in to a serving glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkle coffee powder.
  • Serve CHILLED.

HINT:

If you are using the plain Vanilla Ice Cream then you would need to increase the Coffee Decoction to be added or in turn, add a spoon of Instant Coffee Powder, to the blender,  for that coffee flavour.

  1. Oh what a coffee.I was not a coffee person until I started working. Then my manager got me hooked on to it. I buy coffee from the estate and save them in airtight containers until my next trip. The Arabic coffee sprinkled makes it all the more coffilicious.
