DSC_0334Easiest 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.

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • ~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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

      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.
