Leave it up to Chick Fil A for making a delightful drink combination of coffee and ice cream. You might wonder what in the world is a frosted coffee?
What makes this Chick Fil A frosted coffee so amazing?
This drink combines rich dark coffee and vanilla ice cream. This is a wonderful adult milkshake. The richness of the coffee and the thick vanilla ice cream are a match made in heaven.
What is a Frosted Coffee?
A frosted coffee is the perfect combination of vanilla ice cream and coffee. It is similar to a coffee milkshake. You could swap out the vanilla ice cream for chocolate ice cream if you desired.
Ideally, you will need to use coffee that is at room temperature to make a frosted coffee. Hot coffee will melt the ice cream. So don’t use hot coffee. You may want to use cold brew coffee, but again, make sure it’s room temperature coffee.
When you make your frosted coffee at home, you could use either decaf coffee or regular coffee. To make this recipe you will need about 1/2 cup or 4 ounces of coffee.
