Strong coffee
Sweetener to taste

The tradional method is to cool the sweetened coffee, then put into a freezer-proof container and freeze. Every hour or so, take it out and whisk it with a fork to break up the lumps of ice. Continue until it is completely granular.

Bodybuilder method: Pour the cooled coffee into icecube moulds or a shallow flexible container. When it is frozen, put it into a ziplock bag and bash it with a small dumbell until it is the texture of sugar. See, you knew you'd find a use for those pink dumbells.

Eat on its own, or with some whipped cream or topped with coconut oil shavings.

Keep any leftovers in the ziplock bag and give it a quick bash before you eat it.

Yes, the dumbell works. But make sure you are using a tough bag, and break the frozen coffee up a big if it's in a solid lump.
