When I got asked to sample the new Brew Over Ice coffees from Keurig, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. My wife and I are (iced) coffee junkies. Not a day goes by that our day does not start with a cup of coffee. This is true if we are at home or if we are traveling. And summer time means coffee over ice. Now we have another great tasting way to get a cup of coffee. I also assume you all know by now how easy a Keurig machine is to use and how quickly you can have a fresh cup of coffee ready whatever time of day you want it. The following Keurig link takes you right to the website to learn more about these new brews and you can even order some K-Cups while checking it out.
So what exactly is Brew Over Ice drinks from Keurig? This is a whole new way to use your Keurig brewing machine. Now you can enjoy fresh-brewed iced beverages just like at your favorite coffee shop but a lot less expensive. Now my wife and I can sit around the kitchen island and sip an iced coffee drink. There are different varieties to choose from and you make it the same way you do your regular coffee. Just put ice in your tumbler or similar cup and hit brew.
So to begin this journey, I started by going to my local Walmart. I had my youngest, college age son with me who is doing research at the University of Illinois this summer but was visiting for the weekend. So I put him to work as an excuse to spend more time together. We looked for the coffee aisle upon our arrival and found it in Aisle 8.
As we continued down the aisle, we saw lots of Keurig choices but I wanted you to see the style I used for my recipe. As you can clearly see, he is excited to have his picture taken but he was a good sport.
So for this recipe, I tried a Keurig Brew Over Ice and made it into a Vietnamese Coffee. What exactly is Vietnamese coffee? It is simply coffee combined with sweetened condensed milk and ice. But why the name Vietnamese coffee? In researching the origin of this coffee recipe, I learned that coffee was introduced to the Vietnamese in the 19th century. The French like milk in their coffee. But there was a limitation on the availability of milk. So they started to use sweetened condensed milk. And there you have it.
- 1 K-cup regular Donut Shop Sweet & Creamy
- 2 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 cups of ice (or simply fill the glass)
Begin by making sure your Keurig machine is on and the ready to brew light is on.
When ready to brew, put the K-cup into the slot and clamp down the handle. Then, simply press the size cup of coffee you wish and press brew. Below is the coffee coming out of the machine and into the cup.
To assemble, fill a glass with ice, grab the sweetened condensed milk and the coffee.
Next, pour the coffee over ice.
Finish by adding a heaping tbsp of the sweetened condensed milk.
Serve and Enjoy!
