New Delhi, June 23  WFH has a lot of people missing their usual coffee breaks during office or their cup of gossip with their buddies. Fret not, if you like the refreshing taste of cold brew coffee, here are a few recipes to try out at home, which will make you feel no less than a seasoned barista.

PEPPERMINT MOCHA COLDBREW

Cold brew recipes for the heat.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup coldbrew

8 coconut milk ice cubes

1/4 tsp peppermint syrup

2 Tbsp light chocolate syrup

1 Tbsp cocoa powder

DIRECTIONS

Pour your coconut milk (or any milk) into an ice cube tray – you’ll need at least 8-10 – cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until well combined, adding an extra milk ice cube if needed. Taste and adjust flavors as needed. Serve immediately or chill/freeze for later. Whipped cream, chocolate syrup and fresh mint make lovely toppings.

Note: You can use light coconut milk or another milk, but full-fat coconut will yield a creamier frappe. Plus, it’s vegan friendly.
