Low Calorie Vietnamese Iced Coffee

It is warming quickly here in the valley.  When it does, I stop craving hot coffee and long for my iced coffee.  Here is a low calorie, Vietnamese Ice Coffee, that I posted last year.  It is my favorite!!


I love Starbucks Frapps, but I don't love the calories that I have use to have one.  With the hot summer days, I enjoy a cold coffee now and again, and came across this Iced Coffee recipe.  It is easy to make, sweet, and yummy!


I am going to start with the lowest calorie version:


This is what you will need:

1. Cold Coffee-- Make coffee the desired strength; Some make it double strength I am not a coffee drinker,  I just make it normal.  Don't use it until it cools.  I make a pot and refrigerate.

2. 3 Pumps of Davinci or Torani Sugar Free Syrup. At this time, I am using English Toffee, but White Chocolate and Carmel are yummy.  I am sure there are others too.

3. 1 TBSP of Sweetened Condensed Milk (This is what makes this a Vietnamese Coffee)

4. 1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Breeze
OR Fat Free Half and Half (I will give you the recipes for the different variations)

5.  1 Packet of Sweetner ( depends on how sweet you like it)

6. A cup of ice

Take your cup of ice and put syrup, sweeten condensed milk, almond breeze, and sweetner.  Fill the rest of the cup with your cold coffee.  Stir until creamy looking.

*This is the lowest calorie version: 74 calories per drink.



For some creamier versions:

Cold Coffee
Sugar Free Syrup
1 TBSP Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 TBSP Fat Free Half and Half
*110 calories per drink

Cold Coffee
Sugar Free Syrup
2 TBSP Sweetened Condensed Milk
3 TBSP Fat Free Half and Half
*195 calories per drink


Make a guilt free coffee drink and enjoy the hot weather! :o)

  1. That sounds delish! I love iced coffees, I usually pick McDonald's over Starbucks, just $1.00 there. I'll definitely try this homemade version. Have a great weekend!
