Es Alpukat Kopi iced coffee from Indonesia

Coffee Recipes

“Alpukat” is the Indonesian word for avocado. Yes, this is avocado coffee. It’s made from a mixture of avocado, vanilla, coffee, and condensed milk and served over ice for a creamy and refreshing treat that’s a perfect fit for its tropical homeland.

Adding avocado makes it quite filling for a drink, so it is often drunk as an afternoon snack or a creamy breakfast to start the day. It sits on the flavor line of coffee and smoothie, with some providers blending the mixture thoroughly to give it a proper smoothie consistency.

Although the idea of a sweetened avocado drink sounds unusual, in Southeast Asia, avocados are much more regarded as the fruit they are.

What you need for this recipe: 

  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 1 cup of strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup cold milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of ice cubes
  • Blender 

How do you prepare this iced coffee?

  1. Place everything except the ice in a blender and puree the mixture. You can add the ice for a smoothie rather than a drink.
  2. Divide the ice cubes between two chilled glasses.
  3. Pour half of the pureed mixture into each of the glasses. Enjoy!
