Serves 1 | 5 mins to prepare, plus cooling and chilling | 28 calories / serving


  • 2 tsp instant coffee

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 50ml whole milk, optional

  • 2-3 tbsp single cream, optional

  • ice cubes, to serve


  • Add the coffee and sugar to a heatproof jug and pour over 200ml just-boiled water. Mix well until the coffee and sugar have fully dissolved.

  • Allow cooling to room temperature before transferring to the fridge to chill for 1 hr or until ready to serve.

  • Fill a glass with ice and pour over the chilled coffee. Serve black if liked, or for a milky, latte-style coffee, add 50ml milk and stir together. For a rich and creamy finish, omit the milk and swirl through 2-3 tbsp single cream instead.

Make ahead: Make the coffee the night before and chill in the fridge overnight, ready to grab and go first thing in the morning.

Tip: You can use any type of coffee for this recipe, from instant granules to freshly brewed cafetiere, filter or ground coffee. Simply use 200ml of the brewed coffee and chill as above, adding more or less sugar to taste depending on the strength of the coffee.
