I've always liked coffee. My first memory of it is when I was three years old and my maternal grandmother would invite me to share in her afternoon coffee ritual. She would set a nice table filled with all kinds of pastries and cookies, ideal for this kind of beverage. In retrospect, it might not have been a good idea to invite a child of that age to drink coffee, but I think my grandmother wasn't hung up on those kinds of details. Ever since then I've been fascinated with having a glass of ice-cold coffee with milk every day. It's really easy to make, the ingredients are always on hand, and I can guarantee that a large cup of coffee doesn't cost more than a few dollars. The satisfaction is beyond compare!To my mother's surprise, who is a fan of hot chocolate for breakfast, I came out a coffee lover. This means that as I grew older and experimented I was able to vary my homemade coffee. Sometimes I would use soymilk, and other times homemade almond milk, I even concocted a version with coconut milk. Since it was so hot, I would fill the glass with cubes of ice and mix it all in a blender to make it a frappe, so delicious! After all my experiments and trials throughout my life, I leave you with this adult iced latte recipe (there's Amaretto in it). You can skip this ingredient if you like, but it tastes great with it!
