One of the better ice coffee recipes I've found. The maple syrup is a lot better than using sugar. I used an espresso and topped it up with cold water + almond milk. Only problem is that I drink it too quickly!

So easy and foams up lovely. I used soya milk for dairy free options and it is perfect for a hot day, or anytime really

I just put coffee granules in a glass, melt with a small amount of warm water, add ice cubes and top with ice cold milk. No need for any kind of sweetener.
