5 Blended Cold Brew Drinks
There's nothing quite like an excuse for drinking what feels like a milkshake in the morning, ya know? And, listen, if there are recipes and products out there that make it acceptable, we're entirely here for it — especially if they involve coffee. The glorious thing about cold brew is that it's already more than halfway to a milkshake. It has liquid, it has ice, it occasionally has milk — the only thing it's missing is a good blend and, perhaps, a couple of other add-ins. Since we're certain you're probably just as stoked about the possibility of coffee milkshakes for breakfast, here are five different blended cold brew drinks you can make at home. 1.Blended French Vanilla Cold Brew For those who love a good flavored coffee (+3 pumps of vanilla, anyone?), this is perfect for you. In the original recipe, it actually calls for 2 cups of coffee, but you can totally sub that for cold brew — or leave it as coffee if you'd like a little less caffeine. 2. Simple Blended Cold Brew Simple deeeefinitely doesn't mean boring. If you're looking for a morning milkshake with a caffeine kick, but you want to keep it as low in sugar as possible, this is the perfect drink. 3. Coffee Lovers Protein Shake If you've tried and liked the new blended cold brew drinks at Starbucks, you'll be super into this. Not only will this wake you up in the morning, but it'll keep you full until lunch. What more could you ask for? 4. Cold Brew Banana Smoothie Is it just us or does banana go with EVERYTHING? See: strawberry/banana, chocolate/banana, peanut butter/ banana, etc. Want to know what else it goes perfectly with? Cold brew, that's what. 5. Cold Brew Caramel Frappuccino Like dulce de leche ice cream — for breakfast. Caffeinated dessert for breakfast is the best kind of dessert, right?
