Lavender and Vanilla Cold Foam Cold Brew

Lavender and Vanilla Cold Foam Cold Brew

I love cold brew. I love lavender. I decided to put them together to see what the outcome would be. Well, I can tell you what the outcome was… awesomeness in a cup.

I’ll walk you through how to make a great (and easy!) cold brew with a hint of lavender with vanilla cold foam. If you love lavender as much as I do, check out my great London Fog Latte recipe while you have your lavender handy.

Also, if you dig this glass tumbler as much as I do, you can pick one up full of the best bubble tea you’ll every have from Billie Gold Bubble Tea. If you’re in Dayton, follow her wherever she goes… you won’t find any better!

Ingredients & Supplies

  • Cold brew system (check out my favorite from Amazon)
  • Coarsely ground coffee
  • 2 Tbsp half and half
  • 3 Tbsp milk (any variety-2%, whole, soy, almond)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla syrup
  • Dried lavender (you can find culinary dried lavender on Amazon)

Directions

  1. Place coarsely ground coffee into cold brew filter 3/4 full. Place culinary dried lavender on top of coffee grounds.
  2. Fill cold brew pitcher with water and let brew overnight or 7-12 hours.
  3. Drain and remove the coffee ground/lavender filter. Pour cold brew/lavender mixture over ice and add equal amount of water to the cold brew to dilute concentrated cold brew to taste.
  4. In a cup, add half and half, milk, and vanilla syrup. Froth using a milk frother or immersion blender until a foam is formed. Pour over iced cold brew coffee and enjoy the coffee and lavender goodness.

I love coffee. Hot, cold, large, small, flavored, unflavored, in an IV… you get the point. This recipe is the easiest I’ve found for cold foam for cold brew. I love it because it’s ingredients I keep on hand and requires minimal effort. If you’ve never made cold brew, you can find my favorite cold brew maker here!

Ingredients

  • Cold brew, any amount according to caffeine need 😉
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp half and half (heavy cream will work, too!)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla syrup (or other flavored syrup of choice)

Directions

  1. Pour cold brew over ice in a glass.
  2. Combine milk, half and half, and flavored syrup in a cup and mix with milk frother. I typically use my Keurig K-Cafe to froth the mixture using the iced latte setting and it works great!
  3. Pour frothed milk mixture over cold brew and enjoy!
