This recipe is very simple and can be done by anybody. Add all ingredients into a glass, mix well, and serve over ice. Although it’s important to add the ice cubes only after you’ve mixed everything, otherwise the ground cinnamon turns into little clumps.

I like to add everything into a clean jam jar and shake it very well. This way, you are ending up with a little foam on top. Also, it’s a creative way to serve your vegan instant iced coffee in a jar with a straw.
