Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew
This Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is just like the version at Starbucks - it's so creamy and refreshing, and the cold brew coffee can be made easily at home!
Servings: 4 drinks
- 8 cups filtered water
- 2 cups ground coffee
- 1 cup sweet cream (see below)
- 1/2 cup vanilla syrup (see below)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tbsp vanilla extract)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1 tbsp vanilla syrup
Cold brew coffee
Make the cold brew coffee by mixing water and coffee grinds together in a large pitcher. Let sit overnight in the fridge for at least 12 hours (or up to 48 hours if desired).
When ready to serve, slowly pour coffee through cheesecloth that is sitting in a fine mesh sieve into another large pitcher. Make sure you pour slowly and with precision to ensure there are no coffee grounds in the cold brew.
Add one cup boiling water and 1 cup sugar to a mason jar, stirring well. Add vanilla bean, then let cool to room temperature. Remove vanilla bean, then store in the fridge up to 2 months. Alternatively, use vanilla extract.
Mix all ingredients together well in a large mixing cup. If you'd like the frothy texture, use an immersion blender or milk frother to mix up ingredients - if choosing this method, be sure to add to your cold brew ASAP!
