Cold Brew Has A Lot To Offer
Cold brew is smoother, great tasting, and is a healthier energy drink than you may find in stores. You can also make it yourself very easily at home for a fraction of what coffee shops charge.
Cold Brew Popsicle
You can make tasty Cold Brew Popsicles using a cold brew concentrate, yogurt or heavy cream, and even MCT or protein powder. If you want something dessert-like use a flavored coffee and a sweetener such as sugar, stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit.
Put the ingredients into a blender, get everything smooth, pour in the popsicle mold, insert the stick, and let freeze!
My personal favorite popsicle recipe:
* 1 cup grass-fed yogurt
* 1 cup coldbrew concentrate made with Cocohaze flavored coffee.
* Simple syrup made with 1/8 cup of granulated erythritol sweetener and 1/8 cup hot water. Let cool before mixing with other ingredients.
Spiced Cold Brew
Some people like sweet cold brews, adding chocolate, caramel, and so on. I have always been enchanted with spices in my coffee such as cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. I almost never have them all in my spice cabinet to steep in coffee though - until someone pointed out that chai tea has those great flavors. So my tip is - throw a bag of chai tea in with your coffee grounds while you are cold brewing for a great spiced cold brew!
Sparkling Cold Brew
When I first heard about this - I was not excited. But I did find it refreshing and a nice change to my usual.
Make a cold brew concentrate and add in sparkling water. Some twists on this would be to use a lemon or orange seltzer or brew your concentrate with some mint leaves.
Cold Brew Ice Cubes
Not really a recipe - but if you are going to brew at home and take your cold brew on the go - we suggest making cold brew ice cubes so it stays nice and cold. Just take your cold brewed coffee, pour it into ice trays and leave overnight.
You could also make ice cubes with a creamer, simple syrup, or add in flavor like vanilla!
Cold Brew Coffee Recipe Experimentation
You can actually make cold brew coffee using any of our Java Planet Organic Coffees.
We happen to like dark roasts for a cold brew but you can experiment with medium roasts too!
If you really want to get into it, keep a log of the coffee to water ratios, sweeteners, creams, and other twists. When you find one you really like - we'd love to hear about it!
