Simple Iced Coffee Recipes for the End of Summer

Food, Wine, & Dining, Seasonal & Current Events

Coffee plays an integral role in our day-to-day lives, so make sure you enjoy your cup of Joe with these sweet, simple ideas.

We may not have much summer left to enjoy, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite beverages. Iced coffee and frappes make for a great pick-me-up in the middle of a warm day, providing a refreshing drink, relaxing flavor, and a (sometimes necessary) dose of caffeine.

Whether you’re in the mood for a decadent chocolate frappe or a something a little less heavy on the calories, these recipes are sure to help you get through a hectic work day or give you a little extra boost of energy over the weekend. We even have an iced pumpkin spice coffee recipe to help you make the switch from summer into autumn!

Caramel Frappe
Ingredients

  • ½ Cup Cold, Strong Coffee
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • ½ Cup Milk
  • 2 Cups Ice
  • 3 Tbsp Caramel Syrup (or more to taste)
  • Whipped Cream

Directions: Simply take your ingredients (sans whipped cream) and mix them in a blender. If your blender has an ice crush setting you’ll want to start with that and then continue blending until you have a smooth, even consistency. Pour your frappe into a glass once it’s done, add the whipped cream, and drizzle a little extra caramel on top.

Vanilla Caramel Iced Coffee
Ingredients:

  • 8-12 oz Coffee
  • 3-6 Large Ice Cubes
  • 1-2 Tbsp Caramel Syrup
  • Vanilla Creamer (to taste)

Directions: Stir your caramel syrup into the coffee, then add the desired amount of vanilla creamer. Pour over ice, stir and enjoy. If you’d prefer not to use creamer, you can substitute your preferred milk, add a couple teaspoons of sugar (or even more caramel) and a half a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Double Chocolate Chip Frappe
Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Chocolate Syrup
  • 2 Cups Ice
  • 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Whipped Cream

Directions: Just like the Caramel Frappe, take all your ingredients (except the whipped cream) and mix blend them together in your blender. When you’re done top it off with whipped cream (chocolate whipped cream will work well here) and a touch of chocolate syrup.

Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee
Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Strong Coffee
  • 1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1-2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 2-4 Large Ice Cubes

Directions: This is the perfect drink for transitioning from summer to fall. Stir in your pumpkin spice while your coffee is still warm, then allow the drink to come down to room temperature. Once it has cooled off, pour in the vanilla almond milk and the ice cubes, then kick back and enjoy. You can add a little sugar if you’d like as well, but the vanilla almond milk has a natural sweetness to it already.
