With summer being just around the corner, a cold coffee drink is a must. This Iced Coffee Chocolate Ice Cream Float will make all the hot summer days pleasant and delicious!
Coffee + Chocolate + Ice Cream = ‘Nugh Said
It’s all the stuff I like, and summer is coming, it’s gonna be hot, it’s gonna be sweaty and there’s going to be a major need for any cold drink like my healthy strawberry milkshake – or cookies and cream milkshake for extra special days!
Knowing that we would be needing cold brewed coffee pretty soon, when Uncommon Goods reached out me to review their products I immediately went for this cold brew coffee maker that uses the slow drip method to make cold brew coffee. Uncommon Goods is a privately-owned retailer that has many different products in categories such as kitchen tools, glassware, and gifts. What I like about them is that they are a B Corp which means they are committed to protecting workers’ rights and the environment.
Uncommon Goods has a really exciting collection of kitchen tools and gifts for hosts and hostesses that you can find here and here . As we are moving to Boston in September and, well, you may want to get me a housewarming gift, why not check out their great selection here?
This cold brew coffee maker is very easy to use. Basically, you put coffee grounds in the tower, place a filter on top (a pack of filters comes in the package), place it in the carafe, pour some water to wet the coffee grounds, and then simply place the valve and pour ice water in the tower. Then comes the interesting part of adjusting the drip rate which will be done using the knob. It’s quite simple. For this iced coffee chocolate ice cream float I used 2/3 cup ground coffee and 16 ounces of ice water because I wanted a stronger cold brew coffee to ensure a bold coffee flavor after adding milk and ice cream. This amount will give you almost 2 cups of strong cold brew coffee.
You can easily adjust the amount of cold brew coffee and ice cream depending on your taste. I love to add chocolate sauce at the end because of how it sinks in the glass: when you reach the end you feel like, oh, there is chocolate! I used low fat milk just because that’s what I had at hand. You can really use any type of milk and vanilla ice cream you feel comfortable with to make this iced coffee chocolate ice cream float.
Another thing that I like about Uncommon Goods is that $1 goes to a non-profit of the buyer’s choice. It makes me so happy to see that a donation takes place after purchasing a product.
I can literally have this iced coffee chocolate ice cream float any time of the day! What do you think of using coffee or chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla? That might be really good, too!
