Almond Milk Cold Brew Coffee Latte

Homemade cold brew is easy to make yourself. Freeze it into convenient ice cubes that you can drop into your iced coffee or almond milk latte!

To say that we’re obsessed with cold brew coffee is an understatement. It’s the only coffee we drink at home now – the only reason we still own a coffee maker (which is now stored up on the highest shelf) is for when parents come to visit. I didn’t know it was possible to make cold brew yourself, but it’s more than possible, it’s easy.

I’ve been buying my cold brew by the bottle, but when I started seeing homemade versions all over the internet (here, here, here, here), I was intrigued. But let’s back up – what is cold brew coffee you ask? (if you’re not asking you can scroll down and skip this paragraph). It’s regular coffee beans (get a good quality kind) that you soak overnight and then strain instead of brewing it in a coffee maker. The benefits are that it’s less acidic than regular coffee, so it’s a little healthier and easier on the tummy. Plus, you can store it in the fridge and it’ll last almost a week.

I usually drink mine Americano style, and Jack drinks his with chocolate almond milk. Today we’re meeting in the (lightly sweet) middle with iced almond milk lattes made with homemade cold brew iced cubes… because no one wants a watery coffee drink once the ice melts.

Store these ice cubes all summer long – pop a few out as you like and just add Almond Breeze! Adjust the strength of your coffee drink by the number of ice cubes you use. Your iced latte will be ready quicker than your local barista can spell your name wrong on a paper cup.

almond milk cold brew coffee latte

Recipe type: beverage
Serves: 4-6 lattes
  1. Grind your coffee beans in a coffee grinder, or start with pre-ground coffee.
  2. In a large pitcher stir the ground coffee and water together. Cover and chill overnight in the refrigerator. (12-24 hours).
  3. Use a nut milk bag or cheese cloth (doubled up), to strain the coffee from the grinds. Strain twice if you need to.
  4. Pour into ice cube trays (this will fill about 2) and freeze. Make lattes by mixing the coffee ice cubes with almond milk. For a stronger latte, use more ice cubes, for a lighter one, use less.

    Such a simple recipe, thanks for sharing! Tasted great, can’t wait until the Summer to enjoy it in more appropriate weather 🙂

    My wife and I have also never bridged that gap between buying cold brew coffee at the store, and making it by ourselves at home.

    This recipe seems pretty easy to follow, compared to other methods I’ve seen out there that just seem convoluted. I would still worry about making a big mess trying to strain through that cheese cloth, LOL! Speaking of which, where does one even acquire cheese cloth? I see it mentioned in so many recipes, but I never know where to look for it in the store.

    Oh well, I really will try this sometime soon. And I’ll make sure to tag #loveandlemons when I do!

    All the best,

    Could you use instant coffee grinds in any way? I know it’s a bit different, but I am curious as to how that would work. Thanks 🙂

      Hi Jeralynn, I’m really not sure, I think it might turn out too bitter if the coffee is not brewed in some form.

    This looks so amazingly delicious and healthy! Thank you for sharing!

    I started using almond milk in my instant coffee months ago.
    I went through 2 jars of IC and thought I had lost my taste for instant coffee.
    A couple weeks ago, I started brewed coffee and the same sawdust icky taste was there.
    Were my tastebuds losing it?
    After talking with a person at Maxwell House, it hit me that it may be the almond milk.
    Today, I will purchase cream or milk (first time in years) and will try……….

    I was a little unsure at first, but it definitely met my expectations. It even made me awake and not tired like my usual warm coffee.

      Hi Ana, I’m so glad! Thanks for sharing your feedback 🙂

    Yas! This will be perfect combo for pasta and sandwiches. It’s like the iced mocha that I ordered on my favorite cafe. I might try this one, a good match up for the super hot weather 🙂

    !This kind of coffee is really popular in Korea but for some reason it’s called ‘Dutch Coffee’ over here. I love it and even have a fancy machine/strainer thing at home, but I never knew how to call this sort of coffee when explaining it to family and friends from back home in Europe. Cold-brew coffee it is!
    Normally I just mix it with milk but your recipe looks delicious and I’ll have to try it!

    (also… strong cold-brew coffee is delicious when added to beer. Just sayin’.)

  9. This recipe sounds so delicious, thank you for sharing with us. It is definitely on my plan to make this one soon.

  10. Love this idea! Very picturesque, too.

    This would be perfect for a cute ladies’ brunch – and one could even add some Bailey’s 😉

  11. I love coffee! Thanks for recipe, it looks amazing…and delicious;)

  12. We’ve been looking for a recipe to try this out. Looks pretty simple, might give it a go and see if the other half approves! Fingers crossed we get nice weather and can enjoy one whilst sitting outside 🙂

  13. I have been on such an almond kick lately. Love the idea of freezing the coffee into ice cubs. Nothing gets diluted!

  14. Anca from

    What a great idea, is perfect for summer.

  15. Really cool idea – coffee ice cubes! And since you can stock them up you can make cold brew coffee latte literally anytime you want. And it doesn’t hurt that it looks really fancy, too, lol!
