  • 1 1/2 cups (350 ml) coffee, freshly brewed (still hot to ensure freshness)
  • Sweetener, to taste

  • If your blender can crush ice, you can add coffee ice cubes to smoothies.
  • Enjoy these coffee ice cubes in a glass of milk.
  • Add any sweeteners, such as sugar or stevia.
  • Using freshly brewed coffee will hold in the taste. It's not recommended to use old, warm coffee for this reason.
