    by Alex Brecher November 16, 2022

    Sweet Vanilla Cold Foam Coffee is a great recipe for starting your day or giving yourself a boost later on. The sweetened, vanilla-flavored frothy milk on top is a perfect complement to the smooth coffee underneath. When you use Alex’s Low Acid Coffee, you can be sure of a balanced blend that is lower in acid and gentler on the stomach.

    This recipe makes one serving, but you can double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients to make enough for 2, 3, or 4 people. Impress your friends with this delicious recipe, or make it just for yourself for a decadent treat without paying coffee shop prices.

    Best Part of the Day

    Sweet Vanilla Cream Cold Foam Coffee is sweet, creamy, and satisfying. When you make it with Alex’s Low Acid Coffee Rise and Shine Blend, it has notes of caramel and a bit of a peppery taste. It’s low in acid, so it’s not only gentler on the stomach, but less bitter than other coffees. When you know you’re about to sit down to Sweet Vanilla Cold Foam Coffee, you can be excited for the day!

    How to Froth Milk

    You don’t have to go to a coffee shop to froth milk right. You can froth it at home using a few different methods.

    • Whisking it with a hand frother
    • Gently blending it in a blender or food processor 
    • Shaking it in a closed jar
    • Using a handheld mixer
    • Putting it through French press

    Whole milk is best for frothing because of its creaminess, but you can use other kinds of milk or milk substitutes, too.

    Recipe Variations

    You can put your own twist on this recipe to make it perfect for your tastes. These are some ways to switch it up.

    • Choose Alex’s Low Acid Coffee in Regular, Half Caff, or Decaf to keep it low in acid and regulate your caffeine intake, while adding more of a chocolatey flavor due to the medium dark French Roast compared to the Italian roast of Alex’s Low Acid Coffee Rise and Shine blend.
    • Make it sugar-free with a low-calorie powdered sugar substitute, such as powdered monk fruit blend, instead of regular powdered sugar.
    • Make it plant-based by using oat milk or coconut milk instead of regular milk. Almond milk can work, too, but it may not be as frothy. You can also switch to 2% instead of whole milk.
