Vietnamese Coffee













Wouldn't you just love to have a really good cuppa Joe right now?
Well you can, a good cup of coffee that is dessert in itself. I love Asian food and as a treat I have this coffee at the end of a light and healthy meal.
Serve it hot or over ice (my preference is cold over ice).
Start with adding 1 or 2 tbsp. of sweetened condensed milk. Pour over a really bold and strong coffee or espresso, stir and voila!
For under $3.00, you can serve 10 grateful coffee lovers this sweet treat!
Better than going to your local coffee shop!

  1. I make this quite often. I think I like "Vietnamese Coffee" better, rather than (I'm out of creamer, and I don't have the money to go to the store) cheap coffee. I think I'll make some Vietnamese Coffee right now!

  6. We had something similar on a trip and now I wonder if it was sweetened condensed milk they had used. I will try it as we really enjoyed and I have tried afew different things but not that milk. Thanks Kathy

  8. Love this drink! But it's usually had as a "treat" only once & a while when we got out for Vietnamese food - I prefer the hot variety myself. Mmmm...

  10. I'm Vietnamese, married to a Mennonite... I regularly check this site, and think that it's so cool that you have included this recipe! Thanks for doing that.

  11. Well, since we own a local little coffee shop, I won't say "better than going to a coffee shop". But, if your tight between paydays or making for a crowd, this is a great recipe. We all gotta make a living. This is however, one of my favorite ethnic drinks.
