  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 1 tsp drinking chocolate
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (one scoop per glass)
  • 3 tbsp sugar

Method:

Step 1

Combine coffee powder, sugar and milk in a blender jar and blend. Blend for a few seconds till it becomes frothy.

Step 2

Step 3

Take the glasses, and pour the cold coffee. Serve chilled, topped with vanilla ice-cream cube and sprinkling of drinking chocolate powder.

Health Benefits of cold coffee:

Cold-brew coffee is better for your stomach.When coffee beans are heated up, they release acidic oils. According to testing using the Toddy system, the acid levels in cold-brew coffee are about a third of the levels in hot coffee.

There are definitely benefits to cold-brewed coffee because it’s more alkaline. The body functions best when in a relatively alkaline state.

A more alkaline drink helps your digestive system, which explains why your stomach flips with hot coffee but stays stable with a cold-brew.
