Iced Cappuccino

Iced Cappuccino recipe

My sister came to visit a few weeks ago and we were working on an e-book project together. (Hint – it has to do with my favorite holiday.) We worked really, really hard in a very short amount of time. We needed a pick me up, so she made us iced cappuccinos. She makes the best iced coffee beverage in the entire world. This drink was exactly what we needed to get moving again. And I have made myself one most afternoons ever since.

When she pulled out the sweetened condensed milk, I was skeptical. She told me to have some faith, and I am ever so glad that I did. It makes the cappuccino slightly sweet and even more magical. The cinnamon on top, well, that is my favorite part.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a Nespresso event here in DC, and they generously gave me a new Vertuoline machine. I hesitated to buy a Nespresso machine for years because I drink more coffee than espresso, but this machine makes both. Even if they didn’t give me one, I would have bought this machine. As soon as it came to the house, I realized that the frother (Aerocinno if you are super fancy) needed to live here too. I stocked up on capsules and have had to restock twice.

Wes and I have all of the sudden become coffee snobs. There really is a difference. This machine makes the most gorgeous cup of coffee. The crema at the top of the cup is so frothy and feels incredibly indulgent.

Iced Cappuccino


Ingredients

  • 1 shot Espresso
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • Ice
  • Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Brew one espresso capsule. I let it cool a bit and froth the almond milk while it is cooling.
  2. Fill a quart mason jar with ice. Add the sweetened condensed milk. Pour the espresso and frothed milk over the ice.
  3. Shake until really frothy and combined. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with cinnamon. 

Disclaimer – Nespresso gave me a Vertuoline machine as a gift. I purchased the frother and additional capsules on my own. I would have bought this machine regardless, I love it.

    This looks delicious, but I can only drool as there is no Nespresso machine in my house or near future.

    You don’t need one to make this. 🙂 Strong brewed coffee or espresso and a microwave are all you need.

    I’m going to have to try this, but I think the cool glass mug you show here is probably an essential component to this recipe. Where can I find them?

    This iced cappuccino is exactly what I need right now. Gotta make one – or three, or more.

    Hi Bree!
    I’m one of Deirdre’s friends, I met you at her shower (I was one of the twins from MA, the preggo one). I love my Nespresso machine and frother and want the new Vertuoline so badly! But I can’t really justify it :). I just made this drink and it’s so good! Definitely a good afternoon treat. Hope to see you down the Cape this summer!!

    You can’t? With a new baby, I can’t think of a better reason to justify a new coffee machine purchase. I hope to see you too! I’ll friend you on FB and hopefully we can get together.

    I’m loving my VertuoLine too! I need to get one of the frothers… that is some gorgeous froth, especially knowing it’s almond milk! I need to take a page out of your book and get a big jar for my capsules, too… they really are gorgeous and I love how they look displayed like that!

    Isn’t it the best? The frother is so cool because it also froths COLD. And yes, they are gorgeous!
