MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   This German recipe for eiskaffee, or coffee and ice cream, attempts to recreate the flavor and feeling of a sidewalk café in Germany. Cold coffee and ice cream never tasted so good, and the caffeine content has a restorative quality.

German Eiskaffee: Coffee and Ice Cream


  • 2 cups cold coffee
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • confectioners’ sugar, optional

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. In a glass or metal bowl, mix together cold coffee, evaporated milk, and sugar to taste until sugar dissolves completely. Chill thoroughly.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream in each of the bottoms of two tall glasses. Pour the chilled coffee-milk-sugar mixture over it, and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  3. If desired, the whipped cream can be sweetened by adding sifted confectioners’ sugar to taste but, traditionally, it is left unsweetened.
  4. Serve immediately with an iced-tea spoon if desired. It doesn’t get any better than this.
