👉 Recipe Tips

  • Use raw or pure high-quality honey. To achieve the best flavored, well-balanced drink, use good honey. A darker honey derived from wildflowers will have a bolder, sweeter flavor than lighter-colored honey from clover. Even better if you use a local honey!
  • You can use hot brewed coffee as long as its cooled to room temperature or chilled. Keep in mind that coffee brewed quickly with heat and then cooled is generally more acidic and bitter than cold brew coffee.
  • We love to use barista blend almond milk in cold brew. It has a higher almond to water ratio than regular almond milk, so it gives coffee drinks the best long-lasting creamy texture.

🔁 Variations

We love making Starbucks honey almondmilk cold brew at home because it is easy and there are many delicious variations to try. Check out these tasty variations.

Keto Almond Milk Cold Brew: Honey is high in carbs and not considered suitable for a keto diet. To make a lower carb variation of almond milk cold brew, replace the honey with a keto alternative like stevia, sucralose, erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit sweetener, or yacon syrup.

Hot Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew: Hot honey is a tasty sweet and spicy combo of honey infused with chili peppers. Use hot honey to add the perfect touch of sweet heat to your almond milk cold brew.

Flavored Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew: Use flavored almond milk (like vanilla), add flavored syrup, or stir in warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or a pumpkin pie spice blend.

Almond Milk Cold Brew with Brown Sugar Syrup: In place of honey, use brown sugar syrup for a deeper caramelized flavored beverage.

Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew with Cold Foam: Add a layer of cold foam to the top of your cold brew. To keep things dairy-free, try vegan cold foam.

Honey Almond Milk Nitro Cold Brew: Cold brew mixed with nitrogen gas creates a smoother, creamier consistency and is also a bit sweeter. For a frothier drink, use nitro cold brew.

Decaf Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew: Make this delicious drink without the buzz using decaf cold brew coffee concentrate.


♻️ How To Store

Unlike hot brewed coffee which turns terrible after a few hours, cold brew coffee can be stored in the fridge much longer while retaining great flavor.

Storing: Since we’re using almond milk, this dairy-free cold brew has a longer shelf-life than cold brews mixed with dairy creamers. To store, strain from ice into a glass jar or container with a lid and refrigerate for up to a week. Stir with ice before serving.

Freezing: Freezing the whole drink is not recommended, BUT what you can do is freeze almond milk cold brew in ice cube trays. Then you can drop the cubes into coffee and tea as you please! 🙂
