Coconut Iced Coffee (Using Cold Brew)
Coconut Iced Coffee RECIPE
Coconut iced coffee has been a thing for while, but I hadn’t tried until last week when I saw a question about it online.
I googled and I found some recipes, they were all using iced coffee but I wanted to try it using cold brew coffee.
What you’ll Need
- Coffee Beans
- 1/2 Cup Low Fat Milk
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
So, I did try it, and it was great!
The distinct and so loved coconut taste was not overpowering, but just a perfect partner to the sweet and smooth cold brew.
Cold brew itself is fantastic, so we don’t want to add too much coconut (or other ingredients) and overpower the coffee.
There are many different ways to incorporate coconut, and I might write future recipes using other methods, but in this recipe, we will use a cold foam flavored with an easy DIY coconut syrup.
You can, of course, also buy coconut syrup, and a bottle will last for a long time. However, I will show you a simple recipe on coconut simple syrup that you can make in a couple of minutes (+ cooldown time).
For the simple syrup, you will only need 3 ingredients – water, sugar, and shredded coconut. It is super simple to make, but you might want to do it a couple of hours before you wish to have your coffee (or the day before).
Coconut contains a lot of powerful antioxidants and minerals, which might give you great health benefits. That said, most of the nutrition will not release from the coconut when you make the coconut syrup. So, if you want the potential health benefits from the coconut, you might want to add some extra coconut milk, cream, or oil to the coffee.
That said, let us begin. This is the coconut iced coffee recipe (using cold brew).
I hope you will like it!
Step 1 – COFFEE FOR Coconut Iced Coffee
This recipe doesn’t contain a lot of fat, and out might not too much dairy or coconut to your coffee either. Therefore, you should be able to use any roast level you want to.
Use whatever beans you like and think will match the coconut taste.
If you don’t know what coffee to use, check out this one. It is powerful, and the coffee profile will match the creamy, roasted, and sweet taste from the coconut.
Use your favorite device for cold brewing brew (for example, this premium brewer). Grind your beans to a coarse grind and add them to your brewer.
How much coffee and water should you add? I would recommend 12 parts of water for every part of coffee, but it depends on coffee, your personal taste, and much more. Check out the cold brew ratio guide for more info.
Add water and make sure all the coffee ground gets wet. Let it brew for 12-24hrs.

Step 2 – The Coconut Simple Syrup
You can make coconut syrup in a couple of ways. You can, for example, use coconut sugar instead of regular sugar for more coconut flavor. However, I will use shredded coconut, sugar, and water.
Use equal parts of all the ingredients. I will use ½ cup of each, and this will give me much more syrup than I need. But you can keep the syrup in the fridge for months!
Add all the ingredients to a pot and bring it to boil. Let it boil for a couple of minutes (2-3) while stirring. Take it off the heat and let steep with lit on for 15-20minutes.
Using a filter or sieve, separate the shredded coconut from the syrup. (don’t throw away the coconut, use it for some coconut cookies instead)
Let the syrup cool down, and you are finished!
Good job! You just made your own coconut syrup! And it will make a delicious coconut cold brew coffee.
Step 3 – Coconut Cold Brew Ready
Now, when the cold brew has been brewing for 12-24hrs, and when the syrup has cooled down, you can finally pour up your coffee.
Let’s start with the cold foam, which we will add on top of the cold brew. Using a milk frother, create foam. You can use regular milk or coconut cream. I’m using milk for this recipe, and I am adding 1 tbsp of the coconut syrup to the milk before foaming.
While the milk is foaming, add some ice to a glass. Pour in your cold brew, and if you like your coffee sweet, you can add some syrup directly to the coffee as well.
Stir around and top with coconut milk foam.
Done! There you have a glass of wonderful coconut iced coffee using cold brew.
Add some shredded coconut on top for a nice look!
