Vegan pink milk with coffee (nom yen gaafae – นมเย็นกาแฟแวิแกน)

Sweet snakefruit (sala) syrup blended with soy milk and espresso over ice. I use machine pulled espresso but the steam driven moka pot method works too.
Course: Drinks
Cuisine: Thai


  • 150 millilitres non dairy milk
  • 20-30 millilitres sala syrup (Hale's Blue Boy brand)
  • Pinch salt
  • 200 grams ice
  • 60 millilitres espresso
  • Vegan cream, evaporated milk, or whipped cream for topping (optional)


  • Mix sala syrup, milk, and salt together. Add to a 440 millilitre glass.
  • Add ice over milk. Pour espresso over ice, aiming for the cubes so the layer stays intact.
  • Top with cream, if desired.


You can buy Hale's Blue Boy sala syrup in many Asian markets. New Loon Moon in London's Chinatown sells it.
