This cardamom coconut milk iced coffee is sweet and delicious. Hints of cardamom and coconut pair perfect with freshly brewed coffee…
If you’re anything like me you drink iced coffee all year long. Even when the temperature drops to -20 I’m still rocking the cold morning pick me up. On occasion, I go with a hot coffee but those are usually reserved for special seasonal flavors – pumpkin spice, eggnog, and gingerbread. It would do me good to never add up how much money I spend on coffee around the holidays. I would probably cry.
Since I obviously have a thing for spiced coffee drinks I wanted to try a little something different with my iced coffee. I have used Silk coconut milk before but I usually just add it to my morning smoothie. I opted to take it and turn it into my new go-to spiced coffee addition.
I simmered and then steeped my coconut milk with some crushed cardamom pods and a little extra unsweetened coconut. I wanted the flavor of the milk to be spiced enough to for the flavor of the cardamom to come through but not overpower the slight sweetness of the coconut milk or the coffee.
In the end, I loved the subtle flavor it brought my regular cup of iced Joe. The coconut milk was not as creamy as my usual half and half but I actually like the lightness it brought. I got all the flavor of a normal creamer without the heavy dairy feel. It’s a nice change from my normal morning routine.
