I’ve said it before; white chocolate is my favorite type of chocolate. White chocolate is more versatile and nicer looking than regular chocolate; it’s just fancy! The pearly-white treat is underrepresented in coffee drinks, though. No one uses it to make mocha, for example.
Let’s see if we can do something about it. How does a white chocolate iced coffee sound? Yes, it’s as good as you think it is! This thirst-quenching drink is also utterly satisfying and creamy, so it’s got it all. Learn how to make it below.
Everyone has added chocolate syrup to milk or coffee at least once; it’s a classic combination that works every time. Although just as famous as dark and milk chocolate, white chocolate rarely makes an appearance on drink menus. Well, let’s do something about it. Let’s make a white chocolate iced coffee. Can it be done?
This drink comes together with authentic white chocolate chips melted in warm milk, sweetened with vanilla extract and powered by a shot of espresso.
You can also make a large batch of white chocolate syrup and use it to make this drink a few more times, but the recipe below is designed to make one cup of the luscious drink. That means you only need a tablespoon of white chocolate chips but add more if you’re feeling generous! Use whipped cream to top this one; it just feels right. White chocolate and whipped cream are a great combo.
Yes, for this recipe, we’ll need white baker’s chocolate in chunks or chips. Buy the real stuff, though, and not the white chocolate substitute made with vegetable oil; that one’s bad for your health.
We’ll also use milk or your favorite plant-based milk alternative. Together with an espresso shot, this iced coffee will truly shine. My secret? A dash of vanilla extract. You’ll also need whipped cream as a garnish, although it’s totally optional.
To make this specialty, heat the milk in the microwave or a small pot, then melt the chocolate. Make sure you stir the chocolate thoroughly, or it will precipitate to the bottom. Next, brew a shot of espresso with your favorite method.
Combined with the espresso, the white chocolate milk gets the loveliest tanned color.
The only thing left to do is flavor the whole thing with vanilla and pour it over ice. Make sure your mixture is not too hot, or it will melt the ice, diluting your drink! Garnish this white delight and enjoy. Let’s add white chocolate to all our drinks! Why not? After all, it’s just as noble as any other type of chocolate.
Iced coffee is delicious. White chocolate is too. Together, they’re a gorgeously pale drink with a buttery mouthfeel and the subtlest chocolate flavor over an addictively sweet palate. There’s no reason not to try this recipe for its taste alone. Besides, it takes fifteen minutes, and the result is more than worth it.
White chocolate iced coffee might become more popular soon. The best part? We’re making ours with actual white chocolate and not an artificial syrup, which is, by the way, tons of fun!
Heat the milk in the microwave until steamy and dissolve the white chocolate, stirring until fully incorporated. Set aside.
Brew the espresso with your preferred method and incorporate it into the white chocolate milk.
