Iced coffee: the Love Island love language

Iced coffee: the Love Island love language

Tonight marks the final of Love Island 2021 (weep!) and one thing’s for sure, this year’s star of the show has been the iced coffee. With various levels of success from the boys, judging by the girls’ reactions.

The boys rushing to deliver morning iced coffees to the girls during their chat on the terrace has become the number one symbol of love. Got something to apologise for or want to let her know you’re into her? Better whip up that iced coffee pronto, boys. The best bit of all is that the girls rarely liked the coffee. And, tbh, who can blame them?


Well, we’re here with an iced coffee recipe that’s super easy to make and sweet enough thanks to our flavoured coffee, without any nasties. We’ve swapped out the boys’ usual honey for some agave.

Any Love Island 2022 boys reading this, you’ll be turning heads left, right and centre.



Makes enough for 2-3

  • 8 tsp Little’s French vanilla flavoured instant coffee

  • 1 litre milk (we used oat milk but dairy works well, too)

  • A handful of ice cubes

  • 4 glugs agave syrup


  1. Dissolve your coffee granules in a dash of boiling water so you get a nice thick coffee mixture and stir in your agave syrup

  2. Fill up your favourite glass with ice cubes and plenty of milk before pouring your coffee and agave mixture over the top to form a nice pattern as it sinks through the ice

  3. Stir it up before drinking and enjoy. Preferably on a sun-soaked terrace in Spain.

Top tip: if you’ve got a blender, we recommend blitzing everything up so it’s more like an iced latte – delicious!

Love Island 2021 finishes on ITV2 at 9pm tonight.
