I have weird taste in everything.For example,I love chocolate but I don’t like chocolate ice-cream or pudding.Yeah I know,weirdo.

The same thing is with peanut butter.Even though peanut butter is not very popular in Croatia when I moved to London I decided to try it mainly because everyone were talking about it.

And… I didn’t like it.It was too dry,I felt like it’s choking me 🙂

But when I tried peanut butter cookies…just yummy.I had to find perfect recipe so I can make it on my own and here it is

Coffee is quite possibly my favourite food. Is coffee a food? Yeah, I think so.If you are coffee addict like me you probably can’t imagine a day without at least one morning cup of coffee. Once the weather turns hot and humid, my coffee turns ice cold. I still  start the day with one cup of hot coffee, but after that, it’s cold.

Coffee and dessert in one,it can’t get any better right?

It’s very easy to make ice coffee at home with only few ingredients

Coconut Iced coffee

For this one you will need time because for the best result you will need sweetened condensed coconut milk which you need to simmer with sugar over the fire around one hour or until liquid is reduced by half.When it’s done add vanilla extract.

Separate make ice coffee cubes.So just put coffee into ice trays and froze it.When it’s all done,put the cubes into milk and decorate however you like.
