Macadamia iced coffee

Iced coffee is one of the best things about summer. It’s right up there with ice cream for me.  I can’t go through a day without having at least one coffee, right in the morning. During the summer it normally just gets too hot for a regular coffee, so I prefer the chilled version.

Macadamia iced coffee is a vegan coffee recipe with homemade milk and vanilla syrup! Easy and delicious.

I know some people don’t really like coffee that much and only drink it for the caffeine, to get that fix and energy, but I’m not one of them. I do genuinely love the taste of coffee, so much in fact that I will try, eat or drink anything with coffee in it. It’s mainly sweets, so it’s not like I have to try hard. Tiramisu, coffee flavoured chocolate, latte flavoured ice cream, … there’s so much goodness in this world!

But my point is this – I never ever want to hide the taste of coffee when I make coffee of any kind. I want coffee to still be coffee, not coffee flavoured milk.

Macadamia iced coffee is a vegan coffee recipe with homemade milk and vanilla syrup! Easy and delicious.

You can use any other milk that you like, but macadamia is really nice. It has a smooth consistency and makes a richer coffee than almond milk does, so I like this option more sometimes.

And homemade vanilla syrup is so easy to make, there’s no need to buy it.
