Easy Dairy-Free Cold Brew Coffee with Snickerdoodle Option

29

I’m someone who can’t resist jumping head first into work straight out of bed. So I count on that morning mug to ease me into the day. It’s especially helpful on days when those urgent or irritating emails appear in my inbox first thing in the morning. You know the ones. That’s the beauty of having cold brew concentrate on hand. You can pour an instant cup of the freshest, dairy-free cold brew coffee with whatever intensity your body needs.

If you are waking up in a zen mood from a restorative sleep (I’m assuming this happens to some of you?), then you can pour a mellow amount of concentrate. Balance it with a some water or creamy coconutmilk beverage and that perfect splash of So Delicious Dairy Free Creamer. If it was a rough night sleep and your stress levels are high, go intense and sweeten the deal with a good pour of that dairy free creamer.

And there is no need to pay the big dollars when you can make your own cold brew concentrate at home! Dairy-free cold brew coffee is affordable and so much fresher than store-bought. In fact, one 10-ounce bag of coffee beans yields 12 to 15 cups of cold brew concentrate! And it really is easy.

Just soak the coarsely ground beans overnight.

Pour some of the coffee concentrate into your mug. Leave it at room temperature, heat for a warm mug, or add ice for iced coffee.

I picked up the supplies I needed to make this dairy-free cold brew coffee at Target. Straight up, I love shopping there – they always have cute stuff. Plus, their Cartwheel App offers great deals!

They had a huge selection of coffee, but it was easy to decide. Archer Farms Organic Whole Bean Coffee were a great value and came in several varieties.

For the perfect dairy-free cold brew coffee, I grabbed a quart of Vanilla So Delicious Dairy Free Creamer.

And of course I needed some cool clear mugs to showcase my dairy-free cold brew coffee. Target had the perfect glassware for a great deal. But I also spotted a cool Father’s Day mug that I simply had to pick up for my dad.

Using cinnamon in the concentrate adds depth to the flavor. With the vanilla creamer and cinnamon sprinkle, it has a sweet Mexican coffee or snickerdoodle vibe. Please note that the Prep time does not include soaking. It is hands on time only.

Serves: 2½ to 3 cups concentrate
Ingredients
Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
  • ⅔ cup (2 ounces) coffee beans
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half (optional)
  • 3 cups cold water
To Serve
Instructions
  1. Place the coffee beans in your blender, food processor, or coffee grinder. Pulse the beans just a few times. You want a coarse meal or finely chopped beans, not coffee grounds.
  2. Transfer the chopped coffee beans to a large jar or container. Optionally add the cinnamon stick. Cover the coffee with the water.
  3. Cover the container and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours.
  4. Pour the coffee through a nut milk bag (for cleanest results) or a fine mesh sieve lined with cheese cloth or a coffee filter into another container.
  5. Fill your mug halfway with the coffee concentrate. If desired, heat the coffee or add ice for iced coffee.
  6. Add the creamer, to taste, and water or milk beverage (hot or cold), as needed. Optionally top with a sprinkle of cinnamon to serve.

    My husband would love this! It’s getting so hot, the need for cold brew is real! Love the snickerdoodle option too.

    • I thought a good cold brew recipe would come in handy as we head into summer. It’s so easy and SO much cheaper than store bought. Like a fraction of the concentrates!

  4. Oh man I really want to make cold brew… I think you have convinced me! It can be so gosh darn expensive! And it looks so easy. I like to try and ease into the day with a coffee and read either a book or national geographic.

  5. This mug seriously needs to find its way into my kitchen! I love the delicious dairy free options on the market these days, it really helps make mornings enjoyable for everyone!
