A blended iced cappuccino is a refreshing beverage that cools you down while also providing an added boost of energy from the coffee. While you can also make your own blended iced coffee beverages at home, and the process involves brewing the espresso and steaming the milk to make the cappuccino, and then blending the drink with ice, you may find it simpler to buy one of these prepared blended iced coffee beverages.
Grind enough espresso beans to make 1 tablespoon of ground coffee using an espresso bean grinder. Put 1 tablespoon ground coffee into the portafilter (the cupped handle) of a commercial espresso machine and lightly tamp the grounds. Place the portafilter in the machine and the glass or cup on top. Adjust the machine for a double shot and start the machine to extract the espresso, which should have a thick golden brown crema.
Pour the espresso over the ice cubes in a mixing glass filled with 6 to 8 ice cubes and stir well. Reduce the temperature by stirring. Strain the cooled espresso into a serving glass using a spoon or strainer, leaving the ice behind (if desired, ice can be included or added later). In the serving glass, combine the cold milk and the cooled espresso.
Make sure to steam the whole milk using the steam wand of the espresso machine in order to create a tight, small-bubble, micro foam. Sprinkle in only the proper amount of the micro foam (roughly 3 to 4 ounces, equal to the rest of the mix) with a spoon and then add the milk and espresso. You don't want to mask the flavors by adding unnecessary garnishes. Serve immediately.
