Cold Brew

July 27, 2017

If you’re a coffee aficionado like me, you no doubt enjoy a good cup of cold brew. Cold brew, unlike normal iced coffee, is brewed at room temperature over 20-24 hours. The result is a smooth tasting, low acidity, and strong concentrate. Served iced, a cup of cold brew is naturally calorie and sugar free (unless something is added to it post-brewing). And in Texas heat, hot coffee is a lot less inviting than this icy alternative.


I’m a cold brew addict. And while I usually like to stop by cafes for a cup, I love Chameleon Cold Brew because I can store it in my fridge and make coffee whenever I want. The concentrate is very strong, and I like that I can make it myself, adding my preferred amount of water and milk instead of relying on a barista. With various flavors, I suggest the vanilla or black options because they taste incredible and have no calories or sugar.


Another thing to love about cold brew- it can be added to cold smoothies, shakes, and other recipes. Here is my favorite easy cold brew morning smoothie.


Cold Brew Smoothie

1/3 cup vanilla Chameleon cold brew

½ cup milk of your choice (I use almond)

½ cup ice

1 frozen banana

1 tablespoon peanut or almond butter

1 packet Stevia (optional)

Blend until smooth
