Chill Out This Summer with A Nespresso Caffè Shakerato
If like me you love coffee, but are looking for something that’s also refreshing on a hot Summer’s day, there is nothing better than an iced coffee – or a Caffè Shakerato.
What is a Caffè Shakerato?
Well, it’s a refreshing Italian coffee drink that’s perfect for Summer. You simply combine freshly made coffee with approximately 3.5 grams of sugar and 3 large cubes of ice and shake it all together vigorously until you get a froth when you pour it. In Italy they often strain it before pouring into a cocktail glass.
Nespresso Shakerato Iced Coffee Kit
Instead of heading to your local café, Nespresso have launched an Iced Coffee Kit called the “View Iced Recipe Kit” this Summer. It includes everything you need to make a Caffè Shakerato and we’ve been lucky enough to be sent one to test it out. It’s so easy – and the perfect way to make Caffè Shakerato in the comfort of your own home!
The kit consist of 2 “View Glasses” with rubber lids (so that you can shake like a true barista 😉 and a small ice tray and the ideal coffee to make this drink is Nespresso’s Special Limited Edition Caffè Shakerato, but you could choose another favourite Nespresso capsule of your choice.
Incidentally the ice tray which comes with the kit is one of the best ice trays I’ve ever come across as it’s so easy to extract the cubes – so it’s ideal to use all year round.
Recipe for Nespresso Iced Coffee
1 Nespresso Caffè Shakerato (or your favourite) capsule (make approx 40ml of coffee in the normal way with your machine)
3.5 grams of sugar (you could of course use sweetener if you prefer)
3 x large ice cubes.
- Simply place all three ingredients into the View Glass and shake like crazy!
- You should now have a froth at the top and have a delicious and refreshing Caffè Shakerato
It’s so simple – but tastes delicious – and ideal for hot Summer weather.
