Cold brew coffee with almond milk is easy to make at home.

All you need is coffee grounds, water (preferably filtered), a jar, something to strain the coffee from the grounds, and almond milk. That’s it!

I really enjoy having my dairy free cold brew coffee in the summer as an iced coffee, but it also makes a great coffee in the all year round.

I find almond milk to be a nice addition to coffee because the almond flavor tastes good with it, whether it is a hot coffee with almond milk or an iced coffee with almond milk.

Cold brew coffee with oat milk is also a great way to enjoy your dairy free coffee.

What Kind of Almond Milk should I use?

Personally, I prefer a full fat neutral flavored barista styled almond milk.

However, if you don’t mind thin milks in your coffee, you can use any almond milk you have on hand.

Is cold brew dairy-free?

Cold brew coffee that is only ground coffee beans and water is dairy free. To keep it dairy free, you need to drink it black or add only dairy free milk products to it.

Is iced coffee dairy-free?

Iced coffee is not inherently dairy free. It is dairy free if you do not add any dairy to it and only use dairy free ingredients to make it.

Should I use filtered water?

If you have it, you should use it because it will give you a sweeter coffee in the end.

However, if you don’t have one, it shouldn’t stop you from making cold brew coffee.

Can I use a French press?

Actually, you can make cold brew coffee in a French press. You can simply press after leaving overnight.

What if I want to add flavor to my coffee?

If you want to add spices to your coffee, add a 1/2-inch cinnamon stick and 1 clove to the brew.

How do I avoid ice cubes diluting the coffee?

A popular trick to avoid ice cubes diluting your coffee is to make coffee cubes and use them.

What is special about cold brew coffee?

Due to containing less acidity, cold brew is less bitter than regular coffee.

Is cold brew stronger than regular coffee?

Cold brew coffee has more caffeine, but it has a smoother, more mild flavor.
