Cold Brew Coffee Infusions to Try This Summer
If you love cold brew coffee but are looking for something exciting and new, why not try a cold brew coffee infusion? Coffee infusions offer the perfect way to switch up your daily cup of joe. From vanilla bean to espresso, there are so many delicious ways to spice up your morning or afternoon pick-me-up with an infusion. Here are some of our favorite cold brew coffee infusions for moms who need a little extra energy this summer.
Vanilla Bean Cold Brew Coffee
Vanilla bean is one of the most popular flavors in coffee, and it’s easy to see why. The subtle sweetness of vanilla beans pairs perfectly with the natural bitterness of cold brew coffee for a smooth and creamy treat that will leave you feeling energized and refreshed. All you need is some freshly ground vanilla beans (you can find these at most grocery stores) and your favorite cold brew concentrate. Simply add a few tablespoons of ground vanilla beans to the concentrate before chilling overnight in the refrigerator. Add a splash of cream or milk if desired!
Chocolate Espresso Cold Brew Coffee
Chocolate espresso is another great way to jazz up your morning caffeine fix. Chocolate espresso combines two classic flavors—chocolate and espresso—for a unique twist on traditional cold brew coffee. To make this delicious concoction, simply mix together 1/4 cup ground espresso beans, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 2 tablespoons sugar or honey, and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in a small bowl. Once combined, add 1/2 cup of this mixture to your favorite cold brew concentrate before chilling overnight in the refrigerator. Enjoy with or without cream!
Mint Mocha Cold Brew Coffee
Mint mocha is an ideal choice for those looking for something cool and refreshing on hot summer days. To make mint mocha cold brew at home, mix together 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons powdered sugar or honey, 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (or more if desired), and 2 tablespoons heavy cream in a small bowl until well blended. Add this mixture to your preferred cold brew concentrate before chilling overnight in the refrigerator. Serve over ice with extra cream if desired!
