Oh wow, I found a recipe for homemade Cold Brew that is actually delicious. And I must share it with you. Granted, I cannot take full credit for this one – there are a couple differences though from the original recipe – but this one goes to Half Baked Harvest, one of my few food blogs that I follow. Her photography is just incredible.
Homemade Cold Brew Coffee
Yield 4 – 5 cups of coffee
- 1 cup good quality ground dark roast
- 5 cups water
Combine ground dark roast and water in a jug or pitcher – cover with plastic wrap, and let steeped overnight. Strain using a fine sieve lined with a cheese cloth. Serve with on ice with a touch of milk, or vanilla coconut cream (recipe below). Will keep in the fridge for a week (or until you finish it all, which will most likely be sooner than that).
Vanilla Coconut Cream
Yield 1 – 2 cups
- 1 can reduced fat coconut milk, shaken to emulsify
- 1 Tbsp honey, or your favourite sweetener
- 1 tsp true Mexican vanilla, or the seeds from one vanilla pod (if you have deep pockets!)
Combine all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Heat on the stove until just under a boil. Remove from the heat to cool. Transfer to an airtight container, and store in the fridge for up to a week.
This made my day, people. If you’re a fan of iced coffee or cold brew – you’ll LOVE this little treat!
