5 Summer coffee recipes

1. Tiramisu Parfaits

Perfect for a summer BBQ, make sure you whip these up the day before. The flavour soaks in and tastes even better! It combines beautiful Mascarpone cheese with ladyfinger biscuits and rich freshly brewed expresso. Are you salivating? PS Did you know that Tiramisu was originally a breakfast recipe? Find the recipe from Hummingbird High right here…

2. Belgian Iced Coffee Cream

Creamy and ice cold, this dessert from Manila Spoon comes with a warning. Don’t eat quickly or you know what will happen – ICE CREAM HEADACHE! Incredibly tasty, it combines 3 shots of espresso with cream, ice cream and chocolate. Ooo lala! This is one easy summer recipe you can either whip up in a matter of minutes or make and keep in the fridge for dessert in a flash!

There’s nothing like a refreshing cold glass of coffee on a stinking hot day! Our recipe for Cold Brew Coffee would go perfectly with this frosty drink. It’s pretty simple, just follow the directions then add your favourite ice cream and mix to your heart’s content. Check out this recipe from Roxana’s Home Baking.

5. Coffee Crème Brûlée

Don’t be scared off by its crunchy top, it’s really not that hard to make. Just follow this recipe from and you’ll be laughin’.
