THE BEST SWEET CREAM COLD FOAM
Vanilla sweet cream cold foam is one the most popular things to get at Starbucks right now. And if you've ever had it, you know why it's delicious!
But you don't have to go to a coffee shop to enjoy this cold foam treat. This recipe will show you exactly how to make sweet cream cold foam in under a minute with only 4 ingredients!
And honestly, I think making it at home is even better than ordering it out. The sweet cream cold foam turns out perfectly frothy and creamy with a sweet vanilla flavor.
The best part about it is that it tastes incredible in iced coffee, cold brews, or even just espresso!
With that said, one of my favorite things to do lately is to make a big pot of coffee and put it in the fridge to cool off - or buy some cold brew from the store - and then whip up this vanilla sweet cream cold foam to top it off.
Honestly, it's why I've been jumping out of bed in the morning. And, I'm pretty sure, if you make it, you're guaranteed to have a great day.
So, to make vanilla sweet cream cold foam, you will only need 4 ingredients.
And they are pretty much staples in every home so you might have everything you need already!
Anyway, here is what you'll need:
- 1 Tbsp. Heavy Cream

Now, if you want your drink to be sweeter, you can add more sugar. Or if want it to be less sweet, you can use less.
And if you want to make sugar free cold foam, just use some stevia, erythritol, monk fruit, or any other sugar free sweetener of your choice! Oh, and if you want another delicious sugar free hot drink, give this Sugar Free Hot Chocolate a try.
HOW TO MAKE SWEET CREAM COLD FOAM

Then move the press handle up and down vigorously until it starts to get foamy.
If you want to use a handheld brother, pour all of the ingredients into a jar and give it a shake to combine them. Then froth using a hand mixer for about 15-30 seconds until it starts to foam.
STEP 2: SERVING
Now that you have the sweet cream cold foam, pour it on top of the drink of your choice.

FAQS ABOUT THIS SWEET CREAM COLD FOAM RECIPE

Sweet cream cold foam has a frothy consistency, and it is pourable, kind of like steamed milk. Whipped cream is super thick and creamy and holds its shape really well.

Starbucks cold foam consists of milk (typically any kind you ask for), heavy cream, and vanilla syrup. My cold foam recipe puts a spin on Starbucks by using vanilla extract and sugar to achieve the same results!
