Angel Mama in the Kitchen~ Iced Espresso- Almond Latte

Dear Friends,

You have to try this lovely iced coffee recipe. I make it in the summer quite a bit especially when friends come over to chat or do art.

Iced Espresso- Almond Latte

2 cups plus 1 teaspoon finely ground espresso coffee beans

3 cups of water

3 tablespoons golden raw sugar ( or you can use brown sugar)

1 1/2 cups whole milk

5 teaspoons almond syrup ( such as Torani)

Ice cubes

Espresso cream ( optional and I will include recipe)

Fill coffee filter or basket or coffeemaker with 1 cup ground espresso beans. Add 11/2 cups water to coffee maker and brew. Pour coffee into bowl. Repeat with 1 cup espresso beans and remaining 11/2 cups water to make total 2 cups coffee. Mix in sugar, then milk and almond syrup. Refrigerate mixture until cold, at least two hours or overnight.

Fill 6 glasses with ice. Divide coffee mixture among glasses. Top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon ground espresso beans.
