A-oh! Now this one was fun. I used my strawberry syrup that I made for our pancakes last week to make this strawberry spice cold brew! Buckle up because this is going to be a wild ride.
Strawberry Spice Cold Brew:
- 10 ounces prepared cold brew
- 2-3 tbsp homemade strawberry syrup (recipe below)
- 1/3 cup milk of choice (recipe below)
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 scoop collagen protein
- Make the strawberry syrup and let cool in the fridge overnight.
- The next morning, add 2-3 tbsps of strawberry syrup to the bottom of a glass. Then, add the ice and prepared cold brew. Set aside.
- Add the milk and spices to a frother, mine is linked in my cold brew 2.0 highlight, and begin to cold froth. Slowly add in the collagen and cover with a lid to let the frothing finish.
- Once finished, pour the cold milk foam over the cold brew, give a little stir and enjoy!
Have you tried strawberry with your coffee before? I was very hesitant but now I can’t get enough!
Homemade Strawberry Syrup
A fun Strawberry Syrup for anyone 1 years and older!
- 12 ounces strawberries, fresh (stems cut off) or frozen
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/2 cup filtered water

Add all of the ingredients to a medium size pot and turn the heat to high.
Let this come to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes, or until the strawberries are super soft!
Carefully, add this to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a jar and let cool completely before refrigerating until ready to use. Good for about 10 days!

Brazil Nut Milk
Brazil nuts have so many amazing benefits and they make a great milk alertnative! Try this today and let me know what you think.
- 1 + 1/2 cups raw brazil nuts (soaked in warm water for at least 4 hours)
- 3 cups filtered water
- 2-3 pitted dates
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Let the brazil nuts soak in warm water overnight or for at least 4 hours. Dispose of the soaking water and rinse the soaked nuts.
Add the soaked brazil nuts, pitted dates, filtered water, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to a high speed blender and blend on medium/high until smooth.
Pour the mixture through a reusable nut milk bag and store to liquid in a large glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- Don't have brazil nuts on hand? Use any other nut you'd like! I'd take it down to 1 cup if using smaller or crushed raw nuts.
