Thai Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Thai Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk takes me back to when I was 18; I moved to Miami, Florida to be a nanny.

It was a great experience–one that I would recommend to any young woman.

While in Miami and taking in the sites, I happened to arrive at Calle Ocho, familiar as “Little Cuba” with street-side vendors and these windows that were portals to my energy bank.

I’m not kidding.

It was at one of these windows I discovered Cuban espresso.

It was strong–unyielding, and it gave me pep.

It was a good cup of coffee.

From being a nanny to a new bride, I remember working graveyards for a newspaper and my body’s time clock would drag come one o’clock in the morning.

As I sat preparing for print with heavy eyelids, my cubical buddy reminded me of the power of espresso, and on break, he made us each a cup.

It was how I survived ’til dawn and kept having a social life!

But Miami is hot, and eventually, I learned the magic of Iced Coffee.

This Thai Iced Coffee recipe with Coconut Milke recipe combines my love for espresso with a taste of the tropics in coconut milk.

While traditional Thai coffee is made with condensed or evaporated milk, we kept the recipe dairy-free by using creamy coconut milk instead.

Enjoy!

The Key to the BEST Coconut Milk Thai Iced Coffee

For the best results, you’ll want your coffee to be STRONG.

This will make your coconut milk Thai iced coffee super yummy and not watered down.

A Tip for the BEST Thai iced coffee is to freeze espresso coffee in ice cube trays and use these rather than ice made from water.

You can also swap your ice cubes with coconut milk ice cubes to maintain the creamier texture as they melt.

For best results, make sure that you use full-fat coconut milk, and the higher quality your brewed coffee, the higher quality your finished beverage will be.

Thai Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk Recipe Directions:

Infuse the coconut milk with mint* and mix in vanilla simple syrup.

Depending on the coconut milk, you might need to dilute with a little water to get it to a creamy texture.

Pour espresso into a glass.

Add cold water, then ice, some will melt as it cools the espresso, diluting the drink more.

Pour the sweetened, mint-infused coconut milk on top.

Enjoy!

*Combine coconut milk and fresh mint leaves in a saucepan over medium heat.

Heat for 5 minutes, until bubbles appear around the edge of the pan.

Remove from heat and let steep 20 minutes.

Strain infused coconut milk through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing on the mint with the back of a spoon.

Thai Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk Recipe Tip

Make the coffee and the sweetened condensed coconut milk ahead of time and keep it in your refrigerator.

Be sure to whisk your coconut before pouring it over your coffee as it tends to separate as it sits.
