Iced coffee is one of the most widely loved drinks, especially during hot summer months. It not only satisfies your caffeine cravings but is also very refreshing and delicious. Although most people love the rich coffee flavor, you can add a bit of sugar to make it sweeter. However, adding sugar is not the only way to make iced coffee sweeter. If you are wondering how to make iced coffee sweeter besides just using sugar? We have a few amazing ideas for you to try.

How to make iced coffee sweeter without adding sugar

Here are a few of the ways to make your iced coffee sweeter without adding sugar:

  • Nondairy milk: Plant-based milk like coconut milk and almond milk has a naturally sweet flavor. So, if you use it in your iced coffee instead of dairy milk, you can make it sweeter without adding sugar to it. Note that the sweetness won’t be very prominent, but you will definitely get a subtle sweet flavor.
  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon is loaded with many health benefits and has a woodsy and sweet flavor. You can also find hints of spice in cinnamon. But most of all, it offers sweetness. Adding a pinch of cinnamon powder will make your iced coffee sweeter without adding extra calories.
  • Coconut cream: Just like coconut milk, coconut cream also has a naturally sweet flavor. If you use coconut milk, you can easily extract coconut cream from it. Simply refrigerate it overnight, and in the morning, you will see a thick layer of coconut cream on top that you can add to your iced coffee.
  • Extracts: Extracts like vanilla, mint, almond, and peppermint will add sweetness and flavor to your iced coffee.
