Coffee inside out.

Actually, it’s milk on the bricks. But it just doesn’t sound as good. ;)

This is one of the things I really love lately. It’s so simple, you don’t even need a recipe. It’s rather an idea than a recipe. But however… I have to admit… it is a great idea!
And I love this even though I am not a regular coffee drinker! Also, I do have to write exams right now… so a little extra caffeine is just what I need right now. Have I already whinned about writing exams? I think I have to make up for it. I have to write exams and I don’t like it.

Back to the things I like.

Back to the drink I love!

Who needs Starbucks anyway? I can make my own coffee. It tastes better. And I can make my own frappuccinos, too! (There’s will be another post on that soon…)

So… what did I do?


Well… I made coffee ice cubes! So, that’s my brand new toy: Lego brick ice cube trays! Did I mention that I love my new toy? I’m pretty sure I will use it more often…


Coffee on the bricks
Ice coffee inside out 

  • VERY strong coffee, chilled
  • Almond milk
  • Sweetener to taste (I used stevia)

Alright, you don’t really need my “how to”, do you? Freeze the coffee using an ice cube tray or bag. Put the frozen ice cubes in a glass, pour milk over them – enjoy. Use as many coffee ice cubes as you like, depending on how strong you like your coffee. (As my regular coffee already is really strong, I should really not give you any recommendation on that!)


Here’s another one: Cocoa bricks! For a non-coffee version.

Cocoa on the bricks –

  • Cocoa powder
  • sugar / sweetener
  • Almond milk

Prepare a hot cocoa with about 3 times the amount of cocoa powder they recommend on the bag. Sweeten your cocoa! It should be really sweet. The mixture itself can be disgusting – in your drink it will be perfect! Pour in ice cube trays, freeze. Put a few cocoa ice cubes in a glass an pour milk over it – enjoy!

Penguins! I also made penguin ice cubes…

Did I mention that I really love this drink? (And… did I mention that I really don’t like writing exams in college?)

Not food-related: I just added a “follow me on pinterest” bottom to my page.
… I am gone. Have to learn for college  make more coffee ice cubes. Why does freezing always take so much time?
