Indulge in the luxurious taste of homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, inspired by the Starbucks favorite. This creamy, velvety beverage is perfect for those slow mornings or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

With a few simple ingredients, you can recreate this coffeehouse staple right in your own kitchen.

Vanilla Cold Foam vs Vanilla Sweet Cream

The difference between vanilla cold foam and vanilla sweet cream lies in their texture and preparation. Vanilla cold foam is made by frothing non-fat milk with vanilla syrup until it’s light and airy, while vanilla sweet cream combines vanilla, 2% milk, and heavy cream for a richer, smoother consistency that blends into the coffee.

Milk in Starbucks Cold Foam

Starbucks typically uses non-fat milk to create their signature cold foam, giving it that frothy, cloud-like texture without the heaviness of full-fat milk.

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam and Coffee

Yes, vanilla sweet cream cold foam does contain coffee. It’s a topping that is added to a cup of iced coffee or cold brew to enhance its flavor and texture.

Total Preparation Time

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes (unless you are brewing your own coffee, which could take an additional 5-15 minutes)
  • Total Time: 10-25 minutes

Ingredients List

For the Vanilla Sweet Cream:

  • 1/2 cup of 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla syrup

For the Cold Brew:

  • 1 cup of cold brew coffee (homemade or store-bought)
  • Ice cubes

Optional:

  • 1 tablespoon of simple syrup or sugar (adjust to taste)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Make the Vanilla Sweet Cream: In a bowl, whisk together the 2% milk, heavy cream, and vanilla syrup until combined. You can adjust the sweetness according to your taste.
  2. Froth the Cream: Using a milk frother, froth the mixture for 30 seconds to a minute until you get a creamy foam. If you don’t have a frother, you can use a blender or shake the mixture in a tightly sealed jar.
  3. Prepare the Coffee: Fill a tall glass with ice cubes and pour the cold brew coffee over the ice, leaving room for the foam.
  4. Add Sweetener: If you like your coffee sweet, mix in the simple syrup or sugar until dissolved.
  5. Top with Foam: Gently spoon the vanilla sweet cream cold foam over the coffee.
  6. Serve: Enjoy immediately, stirring the foam into the coffee as you drink for an even flavor distribution.
