How To Make Your Own Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew At Home

With social distancing happening throughout the U.S. and a lot of Starbucks are closing for the time being, it’s getting harder and harder to get your caffeine fix.

But don’t worry! We are starting a series of posts about how to make some of your Starbucks favorites from home!

First up is a very popular Starbucks drink, the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew.

Starbucks

Starbucks has a lot of at home options for making Cold Brew. Click Here if you want to purchase Cold Brew K-cups, pre-made bottled Cold Brew, or the Cold Brew at-home pitcher packs through Starbucks.

Starbucks

All of these options are purchasable through the Starbucks website, as well as Amazon, Walmart, and Target.

If you are somehow unable to purchase these or leave the house, the closest thing you can do is brew some double strength coffee at home.

You will need to use double the scoops you normally do (preferably a dark roast), and then let it cool in the refrigerator.

Starbucks

The ingredients to make Sweet Cream are vanilla syrup, 2% milk, and heavy cream. All of these are purchasable at most grocery stores.

To make Sweet Cream, use half a cup of 2%, half a cup of heavy cream, and 3 pumps of vanilla syrup.

To properly make a Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, start by pumping a few pumps of vanilla in the bottom of your cup.

If you want Starbucks vanilla syrup, they are able to be purchased at Starbucks stores as long as they have enough back stock to make drink. But any brand will do.

Starbucks

Then, add Cold Brew until it fills half of the cup. Add ice, but leave about 2-3 inches at the top for your sweet cream.

Add the sweet cream over the top of your Cold Brew to give it that nice layered look and you have your own Homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew!

Adding heat means it’s not cold brew. The bean should never be heated.
