How to Make Sweet Cream Cold Foam

Hot foam is made of frothing milk with a hot stream to form microbubbles and is used in hot coffee drinks like lattes or even foamier cappuccinos. But hot foams don’t hold up well with cold brew beverages. You need cold foam that is frothed without steam or heat.

Easy Sweet Cream Cold Foam Recipe

Makes 2 servings


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla syrup


  • Mix heavy cream, condensed milk, and vanilla syrup together in an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Pour the cream mixture immediately onto cold brew or iced coffees and enjoy.

Some Tips

  • Use cold heavy cream because the fat in the cream stays emulsified longer when it’s cold.
  • If you don’t have vanilla syrup you can make it yourself. All you need are equal parts sugar, water, and vanilla extract.

What kind of milk does cold foam use?

Starbucks cold foam is made using nonfat condensed milk despite its creamy consistency. Nonfat makes a stronger foam than whole milk because it has more protein. Milk protein forms bubbles when heated.
