Caramel Cold Foam Recipe


  • ½ cup heavy cream (or heavy whipping cream)
  • ¼ cup milk (whole milk is best for froth, but 2% or plant-based alternatives work too)
  • 2-3 tablespoons caramel syrup or sauce
  • Pinch of salt


  • Combine: Add the heavy cream, milk, caramel syrup, and salt to a tall glass, mason jar, or a designated frothing pitcher.
  • Froth: Choose your favorite frothing method:
  • Milk frother: Use a handheld milk frother for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture doubles in volume and becomes thick and foamy.
  • Mason jar: Seal the mason jar tightly and shake vigorously for 30-60 seconds until frothy.
  • French press: Add the ingredients to a French press and pump the plunger up and down rapidly until the foam is formed.
  • Top your drink: Slowly pour the caramel cold foam over your favorite iced coffee or cold brew.
  • Optional: Drizzle extra caramel sauce on top for a sweeter treat!

Flavor Variations:

  • Salted Caramel: Use salted caramel sauce instead of regular caramel and omit the extra pinch of salt.
  • Vanilla Sweet Cream: Substitute the caramel syrup with vanilla syrup, or use 1 tablespoon of caramel and 1 tablespoon of vanilla.
  • Mocha: Add a tablespoon of chocolate syrup or sauce to the mix.
  • Spice it up: Try a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg for a warming flavor.


  • Cold milk is key: Make sure your milk and cream are very cold for the best frothing results.
  • Adjust sweetness: The sweetness is customizable! Start with less caramel and add more as desired.
  • Storage: You can make a larger batch of unflavored cold foam and store it in the fridge for a few days. Add your flavors right before serving.
