Vietnamese Coffee Frappe
Prep time
Total time
Sweet, creamy Vietnamese coffee gets a high end coffee-shop makeover in this refreshing frozen coffee drink.
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 1
Cold Brew Concentrate:
  • 2 cups ground Lavazza Gran Selezione coffee (or any other dark roast)
  • 6 cups cold water
  • ¼ cup cold brewed coffee concentrate
  • 3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup ice cubes
Prepare the Cold Brew Concentrate:
  1. In a large pitcher or non-reactive container, stir together the coffee grounds and cold water. Cover and place in the refrigerator to steep for anywhere from 12-16 hours (depending on how strong you want it).
  2. Using a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth, strain the coffee into a large bowl. Discard the grounds. Line a funnel with a coffee filter, and set it over a large mason jar or any other container with a tight-fitting lid. Pour the coffee through the prepared filter to remove any remaining grounds, and refrigerate until ready to use. (The concentrate will keep for up to 3 weeks, though I doubt it'll last that long if you drink as much coffee as I do.)
Make the Frappe:
  1. Using a high-powered blender, blend the coffee concentrate, condensed milk and ice cubes together until smooth and thick, about 30 seconds.
