Sinh Tố Cà Phê (Vietnamese Coffee Shake)

Sinh Tố Cà Phê (Vietnamese Coffee Shake)

 

 

Vietnamese Coffee is a rich, dark roast that is slowly dripped through a small metal filter. More often than not, the coffee grinds are mixed with a chicory blend that gives the coffee a “woody” flavor profile. With a spoonful of rich condensed milk, it’s called Cà Phê Sữa and without it’s called Cà Phê Đen.

For this month’s Delicious Vietnam, I decided to utilize Cà Phê Sữa to make one of my favorite treats — Sinh Tố or Vietnamese Shake. In Việt Nam, Sinh Tố is usually made with fruits such as pineapples, mangoes, and avocados. It’s blended with milk, condensed milk, and ice to make a deliciously refreshing treat. But since I’m a major caffeine addict, I thought a Cà Phê flavored Sinh Tố would be the best of both worlds.

Instead of milk, I opted for Vanilla Ice Cream. And with the use of slow dripped Vietnamese coffee, this “shake” has a completely different flavor than any coffee shake you’ve ever tasted. It’s all in the chicory!

Don’t be surprised if your nearest mega-coffee-shop started offering Sinh Tố Cà Phê!

  1. Oh my! I love Vietnamese coffee so much that I even make one at home (with the drip)! But I never thought of adding ice cream in it… I have all the ingredients already. Tomorrow is a dangerous sugar high day for me! Yippieeeeee! =P

  2. I have totally limited my cafe sua da intake for only in the mornings because any later, I’m still wired past my bedtime. I would totally make an exception for this! Now must find good quality vanilla ice cream in HCMC.
