If you’re like me, iced coffee drinks are my go-to when the weather is warm. Making homemade coffeehouse drinks is a great way to save money and enjoy your coffee too.

The use of unsweetened almond milk also makes this a great option for those who cannot consume dairy. A few other perks of using unsweetened almond milk in this recipe is that it is low in carbs, low in calories, and a good source of various vitamins and minerals too. Score!

WHAT ARE THE BEST COFFEES FOR COLD BREW?

Making your own cold brew at home is super easy and cost effective!

Selecting high-quality coffee beans makes high-quality cold brew coffee. I recommend using your favorite coffee when making cold brew at home (since you already know you like it!). You can also find cold brew blends from various roasters which are a great option too.

I personally use a local medium roast coffee when I’m brewing my own cold brew.

TIP: The most important thing to know is that you need to use coarsely ground coffee to make cold brew coffee. Coarse ground coffee beans makes the filtration process much easier after your brew time is complete, and also contributes to less bitter coffee.

MODIFICATIONS FOR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: VEGAN, GF, DF

This honey almond milk cold brew recipe is already gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian as written!

  • Note: If you are making this recipe for someone with celiac disease, make sure to select an almond milk brand that is certified as gluten free. While almond milk is naturally gluten free, it may be cross-contaminated depending on how it is processed.
  • As honey is not an acceptable sweetener for vegans, to make this recipe vegan you could swap out the honey for pure maple syrup or agave. Please note that making this substitution will result in an iced cold brew latte that really isn’t a copycat of the honey almond milk cold brew from Starbucks anymore since honey is a main player in the original recipe. But it will still be a great summer coffee drink to enjoy!

FAQS

Can I make cold brew coffee at home? Yes! I go into great detail on how to make the perfect homemade cold brew coffee in this blog post. This guide walks you through what the best cold brew ratio is, the type of grind you need, ways you can brew your cold brew, how long to brew cold brew, and more!

Is decaf cold brew a thing? If you make your own cold brew coffee at home, decaf cold brew can be a thing! I love making decaf cold brew so that I can sip on delicious coffee drinks all day long when it’s hot out. Making decaf cold brew is also a great option if you have a friend or family member who is pregnant or is sensitive to caffeine.

What is the best store-bought cold brew coffee? While this is subjective, I personally like the Stok Coffee cold brews myself (their Un-Sweet Cold Brew is my favorite). But there is a wide variety of commercial cold brews you can buy. I recommend trying a few different brands out to find your favorite!

Can I just put regular honey in my cold brew coffee latte? You can, but since the drink is cold the honey will not dissolve to blend into your drink. This can result in “chunks” of honey at random times as you sip on your drink. If you didn’t have time to make honey simple syrup before you plan to make this drink, I’d recommend dissolving the honey with a little hot water to give yourself a better drink experience. You can do this by adding ¾ Tbsp of honey to ¾ Tbsp of hot water into a small bowl and mixing until dissolved.
