Iced Coffee Spheres are a fun, whimsical, yet practical way to enjoy your coffee. Similar to frozen coffee cubes, coffee is frozen in a spherical mold and the resulting coffee dilutes as a slower rate so it stays cold longer.
Why this recipe works
It is super easy to make.
Using a silicone ice sphere mold ensures a round shape.
All it takes is cooled coffee and some time to freeze it.
A little science
If you like your coffee cold, bold and strong, making these Iced Coffee Spheres will be worth it.
A sphere contains less surface area than a cube, which means that less ice is in contact with the milk.
Therefore, that means that the coffee sphere will melt slowly and not be quickly diluted.
Equipment you'll need
- spherical silicone mold/tray
You can find these trays online, also known as whisky ice ball makers.
Ingredients you'll need

How to make them
Place the spherical mold onto a tray.
Carefully pour the cooled coffee into the spherical mold.

How to use
Place the Iced Coffee Spheres in a glass and top with milk or non-dairy alternative of your choice.
Or enjoy it as is -- letting it slowly dissolve in the glass.
