Servings: Change Serving



Coffee cubes:
To freeze the coffee cubes make extra strong coffee in a coffee press, doubling your grinds to water ratio. Usually it’s about 1 tbsp per cup of coffee, so 2 tbsp in this case with a little less water than usual.

Add water to brew coffee, let coffee cool in mug.
Once cool add to ice tray making about 10-12 cubes and let freeze until solid.
(NOTE: If you want to use leftover coffee that’s become cold and freeze that you into cubes you do that too, your coffee flavour just wont be as strong.

Blend all of the coffee cubes, 1 cup of ice cream and 1  cup milk, for 30 seconds or until smooth.
