As we all know, we are in the month of Ramadan being observed by the Muslims all over the world.
Apart from the spiritual essence and soul awakening purpose, Ramadan is also famous for its festivity and feasts offered in during the month.
So, this month I have come up with a dedicated segment for the easiest recipes for snacks, iftars, get-togethers or late night snacking.
Fondness for cooking is what I have not assimilated yet, however, I can cook well when I am asked to cook. (It runs in my genes) 😛
Today, in the Ramadan special segment, I would start with my favorite drink. Cold Coffee.
It is easy-peasy and a no-fail recipe for sure.
Cold coffee (servings 1)
(for more servings, do the additions and the math to get the sufficient drink)
Coffee powder (1 Tbsp)
Sugar (1 Tbsp)
Vanilla extract (1/2 tsp)
Ice cubes (3 cubes) (adding this to the blender, makes the drink frothier)
Milk (1/2 glass)
Date honey (1 1/2 Tbsp) / Regular honey can also be used
Chocolate ice cream (4 small scoops)
(any of these can do)
Whipped Cream (optional) Recipe for homemade whipped cream is mentioned at the end of the post.
Grated Chocolate (optional)
Chocolate Sauce (optional)
Glass / jar / mug (for the beverage to be served in)
In the blender, add coffee powder, sugar, vanilla extract, ice cubes, milk, Date honey, 3 scoops chocolate ice cream and blend till all the ingredients mix well and form a liquid drink.
First, take the empty glass in which the drink will be served. Drizzle the chocolate sauce on its sides. Once the side of the glass has been decorated, pour the drink to the glass. Add the remaining scoop of chocolate ice cream and top it up with whipped cream. Trickle a little more chocolate sauce or you can grate the chocolate bar at the top to finish the exotic look of your very tempting cold coffee.
Homemade whipped cream.
Heavy plain cream (250 ml) (cold)
Sugar (3-4 Tbsp)
Vanilla extract (1 tsp)
whisk / handheld electric whisk
Add cold plain cream to a deep bowl along with sugar and whisk it with your available equipment.
Please whisk till it reaches the stiffness as per your desire.
It is time consuming, so make sure you prepare your whip cream way earlier than the drink.
Whip cream then can be stored in an air -tight container for up to 3-4 days.
Do let us know, how you liked the recipe and would you try it out.
