Ingredient notes and substitutions
Espresso: Use any espresso you like. Use a Nespresso or an espresso machine to make the espresso shot. If you can't make espresso at home, you can substitute it with 1 coffee.
Ice Cream: vanilla ice cream is the secret ingredient for this recipe. You can also choose another ice cream flavor if you want to, like vanilla ice cream with bourbon.
Milk: I use whole milk for this recipe. Because whole milk makes the iced coffee creamier than reduced-fat milk or low-fat milk. But you can use any milk of your choice.
Sugar: Sugar is added to make this iced coffee sweeter. If you don't have a sweet tooth like me. You can add less sugar or no sugar add all. The ice cream is also a sweetener in this recipe.
