I tried to stay away from this expensive, creamy, caffeine indulgence in a can--but I broke down. I was instantly hooked, and searched the internet for a substitute. You can lighten it up by using fat-free half and half.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add sugar to hot espresso.
  2. Pour all ingredients over ice.

Awesome recipe! I did change it a bit...made the espresso with instant coffee instead of brewing it (3 teaspoons mixed with 2 oz water). I had to add another teaspoon of sugar, but that may have been because instant coffee has a strong bitter taste. The best part is since I'm pregnant, I can make it decaf (or half-caf) and drink it without feeling guilty!!!

So happy to have found this recipe. The little can is so expensive and this does the trick for a lot less money. I just chill the espresso (sweetened with the teaspoon of sugar) in the fridge for a few hours and then add the milk and half 'n half. I like it that way rather than pouring it over the ice. Tastes great, thank you!!
