Just what you want on a hot day or with a BBQ. If you want an alcoholic drink add an oz of rum or rye or vodka. Please note you are not adding sugar but there is sugar in the sweetened condensed milk.
- 2 cups strong coffee
- 1⁄2 cup 2% low-fat milk (or regular if you prefer)
- 1⁄2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 4 cups ice cubes
- whipped cream, to garnish (optional)
- Combine all the ingredients in food processor or blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Top with a bit of whipped cream if you want to indulge.
This deserves about 10 stars. My son is a big frozen coffee drink fan and he says it's better than any coffee shop concoction he's ever had. I couldnl't agree more. My husband is drinking the last of it now and we're heading to the store for more condensed milk. I swear I could live on this stuff. Beyond delicious. Thank you! UPDATE: For diabetics and dieters, or when you're in a hurry, I have found the following adaptations work really well. Substitute Gloria's recipe for sweetened condensed milk for the can of condensed milk. In the recipe for sweetened condensed milk, use Splenda instead of sugar. Just dump all the ingredients for the milk into the blender with the other ingredients. Also, in a hurry I have substituted 2T instant coffee and 2 c cold water for the brewed coffee. The taste is almost as good, and you eliminate the sugar calories.
Bergy, you're my lifesaver this summer! This drink is absolutely my PERFECT fix... it has coffee, it's cold, and wonderfully light! Next time I'll use even stronger coffee than I used today... hic! :-)
Very good Bergy!!A special treat, we used the whipped cream, our excuse was that we were having it for dessert!! Did it as is and we will enjoy the rest tomorrow. (Without the whipped cream) Thanks for posting, it will be a real treat throughout the summer.
