Starbucks Sweet Cream Cold Brew Recipe

Keyword: starbucks, Sweet Cream cold

Ingredients

  • Coffee
  • Vanilla syrup
  • Heavy cream
  • 2% milk

Instructions

  • Start by brewing your coffee. You want a strong cup of coffee with very little water. This should be pure, concentrated coffee, so if you are using a standard coffee pot, you only want a small amount of water- less than a cup.
  • You may want to let the coffee get cold before mixing it up in this drink and trying to make the Starbucks sweet cream recipe. If you don’t wait for it to cool, you can always add more than a few ice cubes to cool the drink down enough, but that will dilute the flavor. You can make things quick and easy on yourself for when you want to make this drink by planning ahead and making your coffee the day before, then put it into the fridge to get cold overnight. It only needs about two hours to get cold enough in the fridge for the Starbucks sweet cream recipe to be perfect- just like the barista makes it.
  • Fill the cup halfway with the milk of your choice. Starbucks uses 2%, but you choose whatever you like. Just keep in mind that the heavy cream is already rich, and you may want to stick with 2% milk to keep the fat at a reasonable level. Fill the other half with heavy cream. Then, finish it off with three pumps or squirts of vanilla syrup.

Starbucks makes theirs by putting the vanilla syrup at the bottom of the cup rather than adding it last. Starbucks sells their own brand of vanilla syrup for that authentic Starbucks taste, but you can buy any vanilla syrup and get the same basic flavour.

You can have yours with or without ice, and you only need a few cubes to give it that authentic iced Starbucks sweet cream look. Take one sip and you will feel like you are drinking the real deal- especially if you opted for high quality ingredients.

This Starbucks vanilla sweet cream recipe is so simple and yet so delicious.

Spice It Up

Are you interested in trying to make the spiced sweet cream drink on your own as well? This is pretty simple too and adds some tasty flavour that makes for a more interesting drink, we think.

This is a drink that debuted in wintertime, and it is served cold at Starbucks, which is weird, we think. You can make this hot or cold, though. If you are going to make a cold brew, we suggest making the coffee a few hours ahead of time so it can chill in the fridge rather than trying to cool down a hot drink. Adding a bunch of ice to the drink will definitely cool it down, but that also dilutes the flavour.

This is more complicated than the Starbucks cold brew vanilla sweet cream recipe, but we think you will agree with us that it is well worth the extra effort.

Starbucks Spiced Sweet Cream Recipe

Keyword: spiced sweet cream

Ingredients

  • Brewed coffee
  • ¼ cup vanilla cream
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • Water
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Brew your coffee first and set it aside. Then, you need to make up a spiced syrup. Take your cinnamon stick, cloves, ¼ cup of water, and ¼ cup of maple syrup and blend together. Put this mixture in a pot and let it simmer. Once it starts to boil, take it off the heat and steep it for about 30 minutes. Then, strain the mixture from the pot.
  • You need to make vanilla sweet cream next. To do that, mix together ¼ cup of cream, ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract and ½ teaspoon of sugar.
  • Then, just add your coffee, vanilla cream and maple spiced syrup mixture. Add a few ice cubes for the cold brew or serve it hot- your preference.
  • We like to add whipped topping and cinnamon powder to the top of ours to make it even more incredible, but you garnish it how you like.

There are lots of Starbucks drinks you could make at home. You may think that they use special ingredients at Starbucks that only they have access to, but that’s definitely not the case. Plenty of people have hacked their drinks to make them at home for a fraction of the price, and when you do that, you don’t have to brave cold weather or wait in a line for your drink. Enjoy these Starbucks drinks that taste like the real deal and stay in the comfort of your own home.
