One of my guilty pleasures is the sweet cream or salted foam cold brews from Starbucks. They just hit the spot on a hot day and are tasty sweet. But one day I looked up the ingredients and sugar content and it was kinda gross. So naturally, I tried to make my own at home and have been hooked ever since!
Salted Sweet Cream Cold Foam Recipe
Try this version instead! It’s:
- Naturally sweetened with maple syrup 🍁
- Can be made vegan and dairy-free
- Much cheaper and healthier than the coffee shop (not to mention, less waste because of no plastic cup and straw!)

- 12 oz. cold brew coffee
- Ice cubes (optional)
- 1/4 cup heavy cream or coconut cream
- 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Dash of cinnamon
- Big pinch of salt
- Pour cold brew into a cup and add ice cubes.
- Froth all of the cold foam ingredients together.
- Pour the froth over the cold brew and enjoy! Top with a sprinkle of extra cinnamon.
How to Get Frothy Cold Foam:
I use a Nespresso milk frother. I like that it has a cold setting and a whisk specifically for cold milk. This handheld electric frother works too. You can also just use a good ole’ fashioned whisk if you don’t have a frother.
I prefer using heavy cream or goat milk because dairy froths way better! But if you would rather go the dairy-free route, I suggest full-fat coconut milk because that will froth the best compared to other nut milks which can be watery.
If you’re using canned coconut milk, make sure to shake it up first so you’re getting both the solid and liquid parts that might separate.
You can also make a double batch and store the rest in the fridge in a jar. It seems to work well if you shake it up the next day. Enjoy!
