How to Make Cold Foam
Two easy ways to make cold foam at home for iced drinks.
How to Make Cold Foam Using a Handheld Milk Frother
How to Make Cold Foam Using a Jar
- Whisk half & half and sweetener using a handheld milk frother.
It should take about 20 seconds to get fluffy cold foam.
- Pour cold foam on top of an iced beverage.
- Pour half & half and sweetener into a large jar with a tight lid.
- Shake vigorously until it doubles in volume.
- Starbucks makes theirs with vanilla syrup and you can use any flavored syrup you like.
- The goal is to get tiny, uniform bubbles that won't even look like bubbles since that's what creates the smooth texture. The French press does a better job of doing this than the handheld milk frother.
- The French press makes better cold foam but it's a bit of a chore to clean. The handheld milk frother is much easier to clean than a French press but the cold foam isn't as smooth since there are bigger bubbles. But they both taste great and adds velvety foam to your iced drink.
- Don't overfill the French press. The cold foam will double or triple in volume as air is pumped in, so keep that in mind when you pour the half & half into the French press.
- Don't underfill the French press. The strainer needs to be submerged in the half & half so that the air can be pumped into it.
