There is no shortage of things to do in the summer.
As you start to plan your summer vacation, a few things become inevitable – there will be lots of time spent in the sun, you will be eating lots of refreshing foods, and you will need a lot of caffeine.
These three things are essential parts of summer. If you are looking for a new drink that is sweet and refreshing, try out this Biscoff iced coffee recipe to get through the day.
What is a Biscoff iced coffee?
It’s definitely not a secret that I love coffee, and I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy it.
The only problem with the number of ways to enjoy coffee is that sometimes it can become hard to tell what’s better than the last thing you drank. So what exactly is a Biscoff iced coffee?
A Biscoff iced coffee is a coffee blended with Biscoff cookie spread, served on ice. The spread gives the drink a sweet and nutty flavor that goes well with coffee. You can also add whipped cream or chocolate syrup to your Biscoff iced coffee.
This will give your iced coffee an extra boost of sweetness and flavor, but more on this below where I go over the ingredients needed:
What ingredients are used in a Biscoff iced coffee?
The ingredients in a Biscoff iced coffee are pretty simple and straightforward. You’ll need the following items to get started:
- Biscoff cookie butter spread
- Brewed coffee (cooled)
- Ice cubes
There are endless possibilities when it comes to mix-ins and toppings for a Biscoff iced coffee. Common additions include:
You could also sprinkle some crushed cookies on top for an extra crunchy texture. Experiment until you find your perfect combination!
If you prefer making a topping that is low in fat, you can consider making some cold foam with 2% fat milk or another low-fat milk you have at hand.

What is the best way to brew coffee for this recipe?
The best way to brew coffee for this recipe is to use a pour over method or French press.
Pour over coffee brewing, such as the Chemex, involves pouring hot water over coffee grounds that are sitting in a filter and then draining the resulting brew into a carafe or mug.
French press coffee brewing involves adding ground coffee to the beaker, adding water, stirring, and then pressing a plunger down to filter the grounds out before decanting the coffee into a mug.
Though both methods require some skill and practice to perfect, either one will produce excellent results for this recipe.
Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference as to which brewing method you prefer. Try both ways and see which one you like best!

Now, let’s get into the best coffee beans to use in this recipe, so you have all the information to make the perfect Biscoff iced coffee at home:
Which coffee beans are best used?
There are a few different factors that you’ll want to consider when choosing coffee beans for pour over or French press coffee.
First, think about the flavor profile that you’re looking for. Do you want a rich and bold coffee or something bright and fruity? Once you’ve settled on a general flavor profile, you can start narrowing down your choices of beans.
Next, take into account the origin of the beans. Where do they come from? Different regions will produce coffee with different characteristics.
For example, coffees from Central America tend to be more balanced and have familiar flavors like chocolate and nuts, while coffees from East Africa tend to be more bright and acidic.
Finally, consider the roast level of the beans. A light roast has more caffeine than a dark roast.
However, a dark roast has a more robust flavor than a light roast, so it all comes down to what you’re looking for in your coffee.

How many calories are in this iced coffee?
The number of calories in an iced coffee can vary quite a bit, depending on what you add to it.
For example, if you add just a splash of milk and no sugar, the calorie count will be relatively low. However, if you add a lot of cream and sugar, the calorie count will be much higher.
If you stick to using the two tablespoons of Biscoff cookie butter spread and don’t use any other add-ins, your Biscoff iced coffee will have 180 calories.
Do you like adding a bit more flavor to your iced coffee? Then your drink might turn out a bit higher in calories.
So, there you have it! My recipe for a delicious and refreshing Biscoff iced coffee. I hope you give this drink a try – it’s perfect for summertime sipping.
I love that you can customize this drink to your liking by adding various add-ins. Brewed coffee is the perfect basis for many flavors, so make sure to add your favorite toppings to it.
