Heat up 1/4 cup milk in a pan or microwave. Add instant instant coffee to it. You can adjust the amount of coffee powder to taste and how strong coffee you prefer.
Add in the sugar (adjust to taste). You can add more or less depending on the sweetness you prefer.
Using a spoon or whisk, mix everything together. Since the milk is hot, the coffee and sugar will dissolve easily.Your sweet coffee mix is now ready to be added to the blender. You can also straight away use 1/4 cup of a strong filter coffee decoction or espresso shot.
To your blender, now add 2 cups chilled milk. I have used whole milk here. Also add 3 to 4 ice cubes (optional).
Add the prepared coffee-sugar mix into the blender. At this point, you can use add vanilla ice cream if you want. Close the lid and blend for few seconds until everything is mixed together and the coffee is frothy.
Transfer to glasses and serve immediately. You can pour some chocolate syrup in the glasses and chill for 15 minutes before pouring the coffee in glasses. The foam will settle down after a while so this is best enjoyed immediately especially if you like frothy coffee.
The amount of sugar can be adjusted to taste. If you don't like a sweet cold coffee, then you can reduce the amount of sugar to 1 or 2 tablespoon. For a sweeter coffee, use 4 tablespoons.
Cut down on the sugar or use no sugar if using vanilla ice cream in this recipe.
Whole milk makes a creamy cold coffee but you can use any milk of choice including dairy-free alternatives. Oat milk will work well here.
For a thicker coffee, skip the ice cubes and use vanilla ice cream in place.
