How to Make Cold Foam for Coffee at Home

Cold foam cold brew drinks

Do you spend way too much money on “fancy” coffee everyday? Well it’s incredibly easy to jazz up your everyday brew from home for a fraction of the cost. 


What You’ll Need

This recipe is pretty straight forward and customizable, so you’ll be able to make it work for you. All the ingredients you’ll need are heavy cream, milk of your choice (non-dairy milks work great), and sweetener. For sweetener you could use regular granulated sugar, but this recipe works best with a liquid sweetener, like honey, a simple syrup from the store, or you could make this super simple syrup to keep in your refrigerator. 


An important part to this recipe is whipping the ingredients, so you’ll need something to whip them  with. A hand/stand mixer would work for this cold foam recipe, but it might be a bit messy. You could try putting all the ingredients in a cold jar and shaking them vigorously for a loosely whipped consistency. For the best cold foam, we recommend using a hand frother, which can be found on Amazon.

How to Make Cold Foam at Home

It’s really easy to meal prep this cold foam on a Sunday evening and enjoy the fruits of your (easy) labor throughout the week so you don’t have to spend money at a coffee shop. 

Cold Foam Cold Brew Ingredients

  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • ½ cup of milk of your choice
  • 6 tablespoons of sweetener
  • Tayst Coffee Pods

 Yields: 14 ounces Prep time: 4 minutes Cooking time: 2 minutes Total time: 6 minutes

Cold Foam Instructions

  1. Make Your Coffee

It’s important to make your coffee in advance of when you’d like to drink it. If you’re looking to make a regular iced coffee, you’ll need to brew one coffee pod and put that hot coffee in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until it’s chilled.

If you’d like to make a cold foam cold brew, you’ll need to think a little bit further in advance. You can pop some coffee pods in a jar/canister, add some water, and then let it chill for a few hours or overnight. Our cold brew canisters make this process easier and are great for meal prepping for the week.

  1. Make Your Cold Foam

Put heavy cream, milk, and  sweetener in an airtight container and mix or froth until desired thickness. Pro tip: the longer you mix/froth, the thicker the foam will be. If you want the cold foam to trickle down into your coffee, you won’t want it to be too thick. 

  1. Enjoy!

Scoop as much of the cold foam as you’d like onto your chilled coffee and enjoy! Seal the container with the rest of the cold foam, and leave in the refrigerator to use for the rest of the week.
