I don't use almond milk any kind of cow's milk works just as well BUT the nonfat does froth better. The cream cheese was an interesting addition--I didn't think I would like it but it was actually quite good. I did change this recipe a bit and added chocolate syrup. Interesting coffee drink!

This is best described as a watery - milky - coffee. I followed the recipe as written and even used unsweetened almond milk but mine had vanilla in it. This isn't something I would make again. It might be a good substitute for someone who likes coffee drinks but has diet restrictions. Read More

I made this as a hot coffee drink as Paula did. It was good but different. Next time I will try it cold with coffee ice cubes. Read More

I’ve had this for the past 2 days and it is amazing! I followed the 1/4 cup almond milk with the 1/4 cup heavy cream. I blend that together with the sweetener and cream cheese. I pour that over cold brew coffee and ice and mix. So good! Read More

I was expecting weak watered-down coffee with this recipe but was pleasantly surprised. Evidently the cream cheese amps up the richness of this drink and compensates for all the almond milk versus so little coffee. I used coffee ice cubes to keep the ice from diluting my coffee as I slowly sipped it and I used my normal stevia as sweetener. The key here might be very strong coffee to begin with. I made this again tonight with decaf coffee and drank it hot. I like it hot as well as cold! Read More
