Thai coffee eggnog smoothie with Thai Coffee Chocolate Cookies

I’ve been wanting a Vietnamese coffee pot or press for about 10 years and never bought one for some reason.  But as I mentioned in my sushi post, I got a giftcard to AsianFoodGrocer and was thrilled when I saw their Vietnamese coffee set.  In fact it was the first thing I put in my virtual shopping cart.  If you’ve never had Thai coffee, or had it but never made your own, don’t be silly like me and wait 10 years to get a pot!  In case you’re unsure, let me show you how to make Thai Coffee, and then I’ll give you not one but TWO recipes using Vietnamese Coffee, because I can’t stop at just coffee.

Thai Coffee Kit

Vietnamese Coffee Kit

There are two main ingredients in Vietnamese coffee: A dark coffee like French Roast, and sweetnened condensed milk.

Thai Coffee Press

Vietnamese Coffee Press

This can also be called Thai Coffee.  Vietnamese and Thai Coffee are basically the same, and are made the same way.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Making the Thai Iced Coffee or Vietnamese Iced Coffee is very simple.  You just pour a little sweetened condensed milk in the bottom of a glass, then place your coffee pot on top of the glass.  Unscrew the inner filter and put 3 rounded teaspoons in the bottom of the pot.  Screw the filter back on until it’s snug (not tight, just snug).  Fill the pot with water, the coffee should just drip through (if it streams use a screwdriver or quarter to tighten the filter).  It should take 5 minutes to empty the pot.  Stir the coffee and condensed milk then add ice.  Ta-da!  You’ve got your iced coffee!

The Vietnamese Coffee Chocolate Cookies are quite special, and one the most fun things about them is that they’re made to be dipped.  They’re a bit heavier or denser than regular cookies, which helps them stand up to heavy dipping in eggnog, milk shakes, or frappucinos.  Or even better, dip them in a Vietnamese Coffee Eggnog Smoothie!  For the cookies and eggnog, don’t put sweetened condensed milk in the container your coffee drips into.  We’ll add that in the recipe.  Feel free to use this coffee in any recipe that calls for espresso or dark coffee.  It works great!

    We had some visitors from one of our factories in Thailand at work once, and they brought us coffee from Thailand they prepared that way. It was the only coffee I ever liked! They said their coffee keeps a lot more natural oils, and has about 5 times the caffeine content. a quarter cup of it had me bouncing off the walls!
