Frozen Vietnamese Coffee

Serves 8
This dessert is an icy variation of Vietnamese coffee, a beverage made with strong hot coffee and creamy sweetened condensed milk.


  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups hot brewed French roast coffee, or other best-quality coffee
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk


  1. Stir together sugar and coffee until sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Freeze at least 3 hours, or up to 8.
  2. Before dinner, scrape frozen coffee into shavings using a fork and return to freezer. When ready to serve, spoon coffee shavings into serving dishes. Serve with condensed milk for drizzling on top.
