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 the perfect amount of sweetness. 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 Coconut Cream Cold Brew Recipe
Try this version instead! It’s:
- Dairy-free and vegan 🥥
- Naturally sweetened with maple syrup 🍁
- 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
- 1/4 cup coconut milk or coconut cream
- 1 Tablespoon maple syrup (1/2 to mix in the cold brew itself and 1/2 to add to the froth)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
- Ice cubes (optional)
- Mix 1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup in your cold brew and top with ice. Omit if you want a less sweet cold brew.
- Add all remaining ingredients to a frother and run on the cold setting.
- Pour the froth over the cold brew and enjoy! Top with a sprinkle of extra cinnamon.
How to Get Frothy Coconut Milk
I use a Nespresso milk frother. I like that it has a cold setting and a whisk specifically for cold milk. You can also just use a good ole’ fashioned whisk if you don’t have a frother. Since coconut milk is a bit watery, you might need to run the frother twice for extra froth. 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.
By the way, if you want to make this super foamy and don’t mind a little dairy, this also tastes delicious with goat milk instead of coconut 🐐 (dairy just froths better, what can I say!)
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!
