pumpkin spice vietnamese iced coffee.

oh, darlings. you are in for a treat today.

not only am i sharing this amazing recipe for my pumpkin spice vietnamese iced coffee, but i have an incredible giveaway, courtesy of Starbucks!

best Monday ever, am i right?

first, let’s talk about this insanely addictive iced coffee i made you. um, it’s out of control. like, so good that it’s a little scary.

don’t you love it when the most delicious things are also the simplest? that’s exactly how i would describe this vietnamese iced coffee. all it takes is four simple ingredients, and bam! best iced coffee in the whole damn world. really!

if this pumpkin spice vietnamese iced coffee had an appropriate mathematical equation to express how extraordinary it tastes, it would be as follows:

pumpkin spice syrup + freshly brewed coffee + half & half + sweetened condensed milk = OMFG.

yes, you read that correctly. not only does this iced coffee have half & half, it also contains sweetened condensed milk. hey, i never said to drink it every day! this is the type of beverage you indulge in. it’s special. classy. it’s the type of beverage to be sipped and savored while doing a crossword puzzle, or gossiping with your best friend.

trust me when i say that although you shouldn’t drink this every day, you’re totally going to want to. it’s pretty much become my new obsession.

i used Starbucks Iced Coffee Blend for this vietnamese iced coffee, and i highly recommend you get your hands on some as well. it’s the same iced coffee blend that’s served up at Starbucks stores, which means when you make coffee drinks at home it tastes even more like a real barista made it!

have you ever made cold brewed coffee? i really love it, but i’m not the type of person who thinks ahead enough to enjoy it. the night before you enjoy it, you have to grind the beans, let them soak in water overnight, and then strain that all the next morning. honestly, i just don’t have time to make it happen in my life.

thankfully, this Iced Coffee Blend is my savior! just like cold brewed coffee is a concentrate that you later mix with water, the Iced Coffee Blend is prepared in the same way. you brew up a small amount, mix that with cold water and voila! iced coffee, ready to be enjoyed. lazy me loves this very much.

you can make this vietnamese iced coffee with regular brewed coffee, but you’ll just need to let it cool completely before preparing your drink.

so, pumpkin spice vietnamese iced coffee sounds pretty damn good, right?

    I love the white chocolate mocha frappuccino on sweltering hot days here in Fl. It has an amazing bone chilling effect when you’re just too hot!

    I like the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but when they don’t offer it – then I’ll go for the Mocha Latte.
