Summer Coffee Treat: Eiskaffee

We recently got a Keurig K-cup coffee maker and I’m a little obsessed trying out all the different types and flavors of coffee.

Side note: Did you notice I am spelling things the American way, now that we no longer live in Canada. Flavor definitely used to be flavour, but I’m trying to adapt, you know? ;)

I’m still struggling with the conversion to Fahrenheit though. And pounds, ounces (there are fluid ounces too, right?) and miles.

So, anyway, on one of those super hot days a couple of weeks ago, I just felt sipping on a nice, sweet iced coffee. I remembered that we also had vanilla ice cream in the freezer and I decided to treat the little guy to a small bowl and then it hit me:

Scoop of ice cream + coffee = yummm!

This worked really well with the Starbucks Caffe Verona Dark Roast K-cup, but regular (dark) brewed coffee, or even espresso would be perfectly fine as well. Just make sure to use enough ice cream, to have your coffee cool down enough.

This is actually what is called Eiskaffee in German (fyi: there is no such thing as iced coffee – coffee over ice cubes – in Germany, except Starbucks-like American coffee shops, but it’s not very popular, at least when I was growing up there) and you can get it at all Gelaterias and ice cream places.

So, if you’re feeling extra-scrumptious or you simply can’t decide whether to have coffee or ice cream, why not try both in a glass? 

Let me know what you think and feel free to leave a comment below! I’m always excited to hear from you!
