Dunkin brown sugar cookie cold foam cold brew copycat. Such a long name right! I just tried the new dunkin cold foam cold brew and it was so good! So I just had to make a copycat version at home.
I typically don't eat much dairy since I'm pretty dairy sensitive, so I've created 2 versions of this brown sugar cookie cold foam. One is a classic cold foam with heavy cream and sweetener. The other is a dairy free cold foam with coconut milk.
I also made the dairy free cold foam without any refined sugar for those of you who are looking for a healthy alternative to sweet cold foam! The dairy free version is also made with a base of black cold brew instead of sweetened cold brew. So it can be totally sugar free.

ASK THE DIETITIAN,
HOW CAN I MAKE COFFEE HEALTHIER?
First of all, look at the ingredients above. Even if you put the sugar aside, it still has a lot of artificial ingredients, preservatives included.
So if you were to make a sweet coffee with cream and sugar at home, it will already be healthier when you choose high quality organic ingredients. You'll be putting less stress on your liver to process those preservatives.
Then, you can go a step further and make your coffee even healthier by using unrefined sugar alternatives, like maple syrup or honey; and using organic cream.
I don't think a little bit of heavy cream is unhealthy. In fact, the fat in the cream can help your body absorb other nutrients. And it has what's called "pre-formed vitamin A" which helps convert plant vitamin A (the stuff in orange vegetables & greens) to active vitamin A.
The problem usually comes in when we use a LOT of cream, instead of just a tablespoon or two. But, if you avoid dairy all together, you can use a full fat coconut milk in place of the heavy cream.

HOW TO MAKE DUNKIN BROWN SUGAR COOKIE COLD FOAM COLD BREW AT HOME
The brown sugar cold foam is so easy to make! I started by making a simple brown sugar cookie syrup. I used maple syrup to get that brown sugar taste, and then added just a bit of vanilla and a tiny bit of sea salt for a cookie taste.
You can adjust this to how you like it, so double the syrup if you like sweeter coffee. Or, add ½ the syrup to the coffee and mix ½ the syrup to the cold foam, like I did. It's totally customizable!
