What is Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew?

This coffee is excellent if you love the taste of coffee but feel like a creamier sweeter coffee without the need for the sugar found in other drinks. Unlike other cold brews, this has quite a consistent taste throughout and doesn’t get stronger after you drink all the foam.

Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Recipe

Ingredients

Don’t imagine a complex recipe but a few ingredients and lots of options!

  • Cold Brew. The choice of coffee is important for a rich brew without being bitter. In fact, I would suggest using medium to dark roast coffee beans for this recipe. Use a French press and leave it to brew for 12 – 24 hours. I suggest coarser ground coffee so that you filter it out easily.
  • Vanilla Simple Syrup. This syrup takes 1 minute to make – all you need is water, sugar, and vanilla extract! Avoid store-bought syrups as nothing beats homemade.
    Milk. Half’n half milk if you want a standard Starbucks copy. Otherwise, you can choose a heavier whipping cream or any other milk of your choice.
  • Ice. The medium ice cubes you normally find in everyone’s home are great.
