Strawberries and Vanilla Cream Cold Brew

I know I’ve already done a strawberry-flavored cold brew, but this one is a little different. And, it’s been a little bit since I updated, so I owed y’all something.

This one is good with any brew, but I recommend a medium or light roast, if you want more of the vanilla and strawberry to shine.

For this recipe, I used the Arco Etrusco Blend from Caffe Umbria, mostly because I had it on-hand. But, if you’re looking at a brand like Caffe Umbria, the Bizzarri Blend would be delicious with this.

1 cup ice
1-2 cups coarse ground coffee (the linked blend above, or your choice)
3-4 cups cold water
1 tsp Torani strawberry syrup
1 tsp Torani vanilla syrup
1 oz oat milk + 2 tbsp oat milk
3 tbsp whipping cream

Remember my tips for easy cold brew:

  1. Coarse ground coffee
  2. Use cold water, rather than room temperature
  3. Let it brew in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours
  4. Keep it in an air-tight jar, for up to 2 weeks

Strawberry and Vanilla Recipe and Presentation

Once you’ve made your cold brew (coarse ground coffee and water in air-tight jar, set in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours, then strain), the next step is the topping and presentation.

  1. Fill your cup nearly half full with ice.
  2. In a separate container, mix together the 1 oz of oat milk, 1/2 tsp of vanilla syrup, and 1/2 tsp of strawberry syrup. Once well-incorporated, pour into your glass.
  3. In the previous, separate container, add in the whipping cream, remaining oat milk, and remaining syrups.
  4. With a handheld milk frother, whip the mixture on low and work your way up to medium until the mixture gets thick and a bit stiffer. The mixture should double or triple in volume.
  5. Pour your coffee over the ice and milk that’s already in your glass.
  6. Now, pour the cream topping over the coffee.

If you’re looking for something with even more pizzazz: add some frozen strawberries (or strawberries in your ice) to make it even more strawberry!
