I survive on coffee. Funny thing is, I use to HATE coffee, but now the flavor of it brings me comfort and almost makes me relax a little. Honestly, most mornings I look forward to sitting down on the couch watching Maddie play and sipping a cup of coffee.

What is Thai Iced Coffee?

Thai Iced Coffee is strong coffee with notes of cardamom and balanced with a creamy sweet mixture of sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk. Generally served over ice for a refreshing sip.

Thai Iced Coffee is known for being extremely strong with a sweet creamy aftertaste. It almost tastes like sweet milk with a strong coffee taste, it’s delicious!

Is Thai Iced Coffee Sweet?

Thai Iced Coffee is typically sweeter than most other iced coffee drinks. However, you control the sweetness by how much of the cream you add in. The coffee itself is not sweet.

Is Thai Iced Coffee Strong?

Yes. Normally, it’s made with espresso shots or a cup of coffee that is brewed with less water so it’s stronger in flavor. In this recipe, I used Cold Brew which is also strong because it sits overnight with the grounds.

As we start to head into the warmer months, fingers crossed, iced coffee will be all the rage. So, as a way to start you off early I thought I’d get you just as addicted to this Thai Iced Coffee as I am.

Normally, this drink is very sweet because of the sweetened condensed milk. But, as a way to lighten this refreshing drink up, I used coconut milk as the base and sweetened it with maple syrup then added in almond extract, vanilla extract and some tummy warming spices like cardamom, clove and nutmeg. You are going to love the flavors from the creamer! It is not overly sweet but gives you that perfect hint of “creaminess” in your coffee. So if you’re looking for a healthy version of Thai iced coffee, this is it!

Ok. Try this recipe. It’s awesome, refreshing, super easy and delicious! The perfect drink to have on hand all summer long and a great brunch recipe because who’s gonna resist a big jar of iced coffee. YUM! Slurp!
