Questions about lactose-free blueberry iced coffee

Have you ever tried blueberry syrup in your iced coffee? This fruity spin will take your taste buds on a delightful journey of flavours! Continue reading to learn more about it. 

What milk to use for a lactose-free blueberry iced coffee?
For a velvety smooth lactose-free blueberry iced coffee, we suggest using lactose-free whole milk. Its creamy richness complements the fruity flavours of blueberry perfectly. The combination of the milk's natural sweetness and the blueberries’ tartness creates a harmonious balance. Also, it adds a luxurious and velvety texture to the drink, while mellowing out the coffee slightly, allowing the blueberry flavour to shine through.
What coffee to use for a lactose-free blueberry iced coffee?
You can use whatever coffee you like, but you need it to be strong enough to give sufficient flavour when mixed with the sweet lactose-free whole milk and sweet-tangy syrup. Brew a strong pot or make a few shots of espresso and give it time to cool down, preferably completely. This way, it will not melt the ice as quickly, preventing dilution and maintaining the desired strength.
Can I use fresh blueberries to make syrup for lactose-free blueberry iced coffee?
Yes! But using fresh instead of frozen blueberries may alter the cooking time slightly, as fresh berries might take a little less time to break down. The consistency of your syrup might also be slightly less thick, as fresh berries contain less water. However, these minor differences should not impact the syrup’s flavour.
