What is cold foam?
Cold foam is cold, frothed milk made without heat or steam. Cold foam makes a frothy topping for cold coffee drinks like iced coffee, iced cappuccinos and nitro coffee.
This type of foam topping creates a creamy and sleek texture that people sometimes compare to whipped cream. The thick blend has a slightly sweet flavor (try the vanilla sweet cream cold foam) and is placed on top of a cup to create a visually appealing beverage. Unlike whipped cream, you can also use hot foam for your coffee.
Regular foam in coffee drinks and other hot beverages is typically made by frothing milk with hot steam to form tiny bubbles.
What kind of milk to use for your sweet cold foam
If you’re a dairy consumer, it’s best to use whole milk for this cold foam recipe. Vegans can also enjoy the topping by swapping the heavy cream for coconut milk and the whole milk for any plant-based milk of your choice.
The perfect hot drinks to use with frothed milk
- Chai latte
- Dirty Chai Latte
How to make cold foam
To make this topping, you’ll need the following:
- 1- 1 ½ tbsp. Heavy cream
- ½ Cup milk
- 1 tbsp. Sugar-free sweeteners such as Erythritol, Mon fruit or Stevia (optional)
- Step 1: Pour the heavy cream, milk, vanilla extract, and the optional sweetener into a small but tall glass.
- Step 2: If you’re using a handheld frother, froth the mix for about 15 seconds until you get a thick constituency that has doubled in size. If you’re using a French press, froth your blend for 15-30 seconds. Again, you want to get a nice, thick, and velvety texture.
- Step 3: Pour the foam on top of your drink, and enjoy!
