Mint Vanilla Bean Cold Brew Iced Coffee

I’one thousand unremarkably such a java purist. Unsweetened iced coffee alongside a splash of almond milk is my coffee thing what the flavour. Sometimes I’ll even become just an iced dark americano. If I’thousand feeling super crazy, I’ll get an iced vanilla almond milk latte. There are those days where I only postulate a trivial something FUN in addition to EXTRA, too that’second where these coffees come inward!

I absolutely LOVE all things java, too all things vanilla..specially vanilla bean. There’sec something then particular nigh using vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract. Nothing actually measures upward to that warm vanilla season that those petty specks offering. I ever take vanilla beans on mitt, particularly later on I found them for super cheap in Europe. Let’second only tell I stocked upwards BIG TIME. If you don’t have them or want a more toll effective pick, feel free to use a teaspoon or 2 of vanilla extract instead!

Those specks!

I usually brand my ain common cold brew, merely I constitute this Stumptown Cold Brew at my local Whole Foods inward an endeavor to salvage a picayune fourth dimension. It’s SO delicious..together with I’1000 pretty picky virtually my java. I besides honey the picayune bottles it comes inwards. I’k such a sucker for cute things.
I too used dates together with a footling maple mint uncomplicated syrup to sweeten this, and then it’s 100% naturally sweetened! I intend the vanilla gives it a warm “sweet” inward a feel besides, without really being sweet..if that makes whatever feel?

Also, how make you guys take your coffee? Black, cream in addition to saccharide, almond milk, hot, iced? Tell me!
