Well, it seems like summer is finally here! This is a light, dairy-free version of Thai iced coffee (which is typically made with condensed milk or cream).


1/4 cup (2 ounces) espresso or strong coffee

1 1/2 cups (10 ounces) milk or alternative (such as almond milk)

2-3 tsp sugar, honey, or agave syrup

1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)

1/4 tsp ground cardamom

1/2 cup ice


Pour the ice, milk and almond extract into a large drinking glass. In a small bowl or measuring cup,  dissolve the sugar or honey in the warm coffee, then pour into the milk mixture and stir. Sprinkle with ground cardamom.
