The refreshing, healthy and energising iced-mate

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

On sunny days it is sometimes more pleasant to drink a cool drink than a traditional mate. That's why, today, we explain how to prepare delicious and healthy iced-mate.

How to prepare the ICED-MATE?

To prepare the Iced-Mate you must first prepare its base, in other words, the mate cocido (see recipe mate cocido).

Iced Mate or Cold Mate cocido is an alternative to the traditional way of consuming yerba mate. Here, a bodum is used to infuse the yerba mate. Be careful, never boil the water! For even more pleasure, we advise you to keep the infusion in a cool place and then make magnificent mate-based cocktails.

  • You can vary your Iced-Mate according to your tastes and desires! For example, when infusing the mate cocido, add other infusions to add other flavour.

  • Another example is to replace the garnish with another ingredient.

  • For those who prefer a sweeter drink, add 2cl of liquid cane sugar (or honey, stevia,...) to your Iced-Mate.

  • last but not least, be creative and change the lemon with another fruit.
