For some reason today I was craving Thai iced coffee but ever since we replaced our broken coffee maker for an espresso machine, I’ve had to adapt my specialty coffee drinks into specialty espresso concoctions.
Today was the first time I tried making an iced Thai latte. I was so proud of myself because it turned out so well. A while back I purchased a bag of whole cardamon pods and have enjoyed discovering new and different ways to use them. Today I used them to spice up my afternoon, literally.
Although I found several iced Thai coffee recipes on the internet, there were none for lattes. So I decided to come up with my own. Both my husband and I are so glad I did. I hope you will be too. Enjoy!
Iced Thai Latte Recipe
2 shots of espresso (or 1/2 cup of super strong coffee)
2 cardamon pods (seeds only), ground to a fine powder (or 1/4 tsp. of cardamon powder)
1 tbs. of sugar
2 tbs. of condensed milk
1 cup of crushed iced
1 cup of milk
In a tall glass, add sugar, condensed milk, milk, cardamon, and espresso stirring until well combined. Add crushed iced slowly and serve.
