Learn how to make iced coffee, aka Eiskaffee, the kind that they serve in Germany. It's not just iced coffee, meaning coffee served over ice cubes like is served in other countries.
It's one of the best quick easy dessert recipes that's very traditional in Germany. Why is this one of the best? Because it combines both coffee and ice cream. And, it's so very simple to make. Yummy!
Yes, this is really a dessert. It's not just a cold drink. It's coffee, the best coffee you can get, served with ice cream, the best ice cream you can get, and whipped cream, that freshly whipped kind, the best. All together. In one drink. In one scoop-able drink. The BEST!
Best too, because it's so easy to make. Easy because you just brew some extra coffee in the morning. Put it in the fridge and finish it off just before you need it in the evening.
This works best with a really good, strong coffee. If you can find a German brand of coffee, that would be ideal!
For something a bit different and unique, brew up some flavored coffee. Hazelnut Cream, Amaretto, Chocolate Mint, and Double Vanilla Cinnamon would make a scrumptious dessert.
For something a bit different and unique you can change the ice cream as well. Instead of vanilla, try chocolate.
Even changing from a regular
vanilla to a "double vanilla" will make a difference in the final drink. Do use the best ice cream you can find.
Your iced coffee can also be served "all dressed up". Instead of just finishing it with whipped cream, add something on top of the whipped cream to match the ingredients.
Be adventuresome. Get creative!
You can also use instant coffee to make this, if that's all you have.
But ... really ... fresh-brewed is best!
