This coffee Cà Phê Sữa Đá can be addicting like any delicious drink to me, so I had to stop it altogether. But recently sister Koko text-ed that the Borden (green label) condensed milk tastes just like the regular condense milk except it is zero fat, so the light bulb came on. I had to try it with Cà Phê Sữa Đá! And if the label is correct, then I can now enjoy my Vietnamese Ice Coffee without the guilt of consuming fat.
How to prepare Cà Phê Sữa Đá, Vietnamese Ice Coffee
1) Get your favorite coffee, ground it for a carafe press. Or you can buy the real french roast Vietnamese Cao Nguyen Cà Phê. Shown below, the blue lid can.
2)Remove the middle filter inside the filter and add 3 tablespoons of coffee. Press the inside part into the filter.
3) Pour boiling hot water until the water level reaches the top of the filter rim.
4) Wait for the coffee to drip down, until there is no more water in the filter.
5) Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of condensed milk.
6) Stir in the condensed milk until it completely dissolves.
7) Add the crushed ice and enjoy.
Note: some people put the condense milk in first and let it sit before they brew the coffee. I always like to see how my coffee turns out first before I can decide whether I need to add two or three tablespoons of condensed milk.
