When the weather starts to get warm I absolutely adore iced coffee. I am really not a fan of vanilla or even chocolate coffees so I usually opt for plain. One day I had the idea to add cardamom to mix as I was making it and it quickly became a favorite. Cardamom goes along very well with coffee like it does with most things. You can even make this mixture ahead of time and store in the fridge minus the ice cubes of course, I do.
2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon sugar (or to taste)
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
Whip cream for topping, optional
1. In a cup add coffee, sugar, and cardamom and boiling water, stir allowing dissolving.
2. Add coffee mixture into a blender cup. Add milk, blend well. Pour into a tall cup adding whip cream on top.
Yields: 1 cup
