Keeping up with the latest drinks at Starbucks® is fun. It seems that there is something new to try every week. Which makes this hobby expensive. 

That is why we make ours at home instead. Making Starbucks drinks at home can save tons of money and time. You just need a recipe. 

We have made almond milk honey flat white, vanilla sweet cream iced coffee, and salted honey iced coffee (so easy) at home. Up next, cold brew with cocoa almond milk foam!

In this article, we will teach you how to make cold brew with cocoa almond milk foam at home using your Keurig® brewer. 

Cold Brew With Cocoa Almond Milk Foam Recipe



  1. Prepare your dark roast K-Cup® coffee using the 6-ounce water setting on your brewer.
  2. Fill a large, plastic cup with ice. 
  3. Pour the brewed coffee over the ice. 
  4. Froth the almond milk using a blender or handheld frothing wand.
  5. Slowly pour the milk over the iced coffee.

Can you make cold brew with K-Cup® coffee? 

No. You can not make real cold brew with a Keurig® brewer. To make genuine cold brew coffee grinds are steeped for at least 12 hours. Needless to say, the sixty seconds it takes to make a cup with a Keurig® coffee maker doesn't cut it. 

You can make iced coffee instead. Iced coffee is strong coffee, prepared traditionally, and then chilled or served over ice. Keurig® brewers are champs at this. The differences are minimal. Cold brew does taste a bit smoother and contains more caffeine. But, we find iced coffee to be a perfectly suitable substitute. 

Which Keurig® makes cold coffee?

You can make cold coffee with any Keurig® brewer. Simply, prepare a cup of dark roast coffee on the lowest water setting and serve over ice.

(We went a little crazy with the foam on this one. The more foam the better if you ask us.)

How many calories are in cold brew with cocoa almond milk?

  • Starbucks: 40
  • Ours: 60 - 100

To lighten this up, try light chocolate almond milk or this homemade recipe for chocolate almond milk:

  • 1 C light vanilla almond milk
  • ½ T confectioners sugar
  • ½ T cocoa powder
  • ¼ t vanilla extract

Place all ingredients in the blender for at least one minute. 

How much does cold brew with cocoa almond milk cost?

  • Starbucks: $4.75 for a grande
  • Ours: about .75

Cold foam – from the first time I heard those two little words, I knew I was in love. I thought cold foam on top of my Starbucks® cold brew was the one. Until, I met cocoa cold foam and now I can make it at home, for under a dollar!
