Vietnamese iced coffee is a beverage enjoyed both in Vietnam and in Vietnamese restaurants in the United States. It is made by adding sweetened condensed milk and ice to strong, dark-roast brewed coffee.

Calorie Count

Because coffee contains virtually no calories, the only calories in Vietnamese iced coffee come from the canned milk. Coffee drinkers add sweetened condensed milk to taste, so the calorie content can vary. One tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk has 61 calories, 10 grams of sugar and 1.7 grams fat, mostly saturated. A typical recipe for Vietnamese iced coffee contains 2 to 4 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk per cup of coffee, for a total of 123 to 245 calories.
