• Iced Coconut Café

    Iced Coconut Café | stupideasypaleo.comEasiest thing ever made.

    Coconut water + coffee + cream or coconut milk.

    The coconut water gives it a bit of sweetness without being overboard. I like mine served straight up over ice. A fun bendy straw makes it even better. If using coconut milk and serving this cold, I recommend combining the ingredients in a blender to smooth out the lumps.


    Iced Coconut Café
    • ~3 ounces of brewed coffee (I like mine cold for this recipe)
    • ~3 ounces of coconut water (read labels and make sure there's no extra added sugar)
    • Coconut milk or heavy cream to taste
    1. Combine all ingredients in a tall glass. Add ice if desired.
    2. Sip. Enjoy. Smile.

    1. Just sat in the garden enjoying the London sunshine, sipping on one of these. Delicious! Thanks for the idea! Blending makes a BIG difference IMO.

    2. Here I was thinking I was so smart! LOL The last 2 days I have taken coconut water that I froze in baggies and making iced coffee with it! Such a great treat!

    3. I made this yesterday and it wasn’t very good. The oil in the coconut milk solidifies pretty quick with the ice and it was just too waxy.

      1. You have to blend it completely BEFORE you add the ice or it will separate. Once it’s blended (emulsified) it won’t separate out.

    4. Wait, your recipe says you started with cold coffee but in order for it to come together start with hot coffee instead? And by “blend” do you just stir it with a spoon? Or throw it all into a blender to make a frappe of sorts?

      1. Hi Krista! Yes, you need to start with hot coffee so the coconut milk will blend. If not, it will separate from the coffee. I use a blender for best results.

    5. Hey Steph I have a closed facebook group that I would love to share some of your recipe to. Would you mind if I did that? It’s a group for eating healthier and I will of course give you all of the credit for the recipes and such. Thank you so much!

      1. Hi Jasmine! Thanks for asking. I don’t mind if you share links but I ask that recipes not be reposted in full. Thank you!

    6. This is a brilliant idea! I’ve been dying for a blended coffee drink but they’ve always been too bitter for me, coconut water is genius! Thank you!!!
