Cold Brew @ Home

If this was a couple months ago, I would have thought making homemade cold brew coffee and mixing it with your homemade almond milk would be for the coffee snobs or the hipsters of the world.

Now I realize how easy and affordable it is. Way more affordable than getting a Starbucks iced coffee every day, and way less sugar than a Dunkin cinnamon roll-funfetti-mocha-snicker-doodle iced coffee, or whatever they sell nowadays..

Other than the time you have to wait to let the almonds and coffee ground soak overnight, the almond milk and cold-brew coffee take 5 minutes each to make.

Feel free to alter it to your liking. If you are highly affected by coffee and its caffeine (totally me), then the 6tbsp. gives you a big energy jolt. For others that tried this, it affects them normally, so you might have to experiment a little with it.

​I am definitely going to experiment with matcha cold brew, and I definitely recommend organic ground coffee for this recipe. Coffee (as well as peanuts) is one of the most contaminated foods, so definitely look for organic!

Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp. coffee grounds
  • 1 and 3/4 cup filtered water
  • Nut Bag

Directions:

  • Place coffee grounds in a glass jar than can be sealed
  • Add water, seal lid, and shake well
  • Leave out or in the fridge overnight
  • Pour contents of the jar into the nut bag sitting in a medium bowl and let filter through. Squeeze the rest of the bag’s contents with your hands
  • That’s it! Add ice to a jar and add cold brew on top. Pour in almond milk or other nut milk and enjoy cold.
