Don’t forget the (STōK) coffee.

Literally, every store I walk into lately is filled with stressed out moms and hyper kids looking for school supplies.

Just today I was strolling around Target, by myself (GASP) and while I was perusing the home decor aisle, I saw those cool college students looking for dorm items. Something about that moment totally took me back to those dorm life days. I remembered that excitement of staying in a new room and grabbing all of those essentials to survive the year… ramen, you were a lifeline, my friend.

The true hero of the story though, was and has always been, coffee! I wish I knew then all the fun ways I could of dressed up my cold brew. Live and learn, right? Which brings me to my next point- I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to drink STok cold brew. For the college kid out there who’s clueless on how to amp up their cold brew coffee, this one’s for you!

Meet the yummiest cold brew hanging out at your local Target; STōK Cold Brew Coffee

The best news is, this recipe only requires 2 ingredients. Can’t mess that up and it doesn’t take up any time!

I always go for the “not too sweet” STōK flavor, it’s not completely unsweetened which is perfect because when I add the sweetened almond milk, I don’t need to add any more sugar. Win!

Ok, so here’s the break down of what I used for this recipe:

My favorite Almond milk to pair with coffee is Califia Farms Vanilla. The texture is super creamy. Which is a big deal for me since I’m dairy-free. Btw this is also, gluten AND soy free. So yeah, pretty amazing!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me freeze my cold brew into ice cubes a time or two. It’s my thing. It just makes life better.

For this recipe, I always add a few STōK cold brew coffee ice cubes, into the coffee. I know, I know, but let me tell you…as the ice starts to melt it gives it an extra bold flavor. I think of it as an expresso shot. You can obviously control the bold flavor by adding more (or less) cubes. Up to you!

This entire recipe is based on your preference and how you usually like to drink your coffee. In college I always went for the cold brew as opposed to hot because I just felt it lasted way longer. Hot coffee that has been sitting for a while isn’t the same as prepping a nice cold brew blend. Am I right? AND I find that adding those extra cubes of coffee keeps the flavor alive, it’s one of those mom hacks I figured out along the way. Kids have a way of needing you when you sit down for coffee some times, you need to find a way! Ha!

Step one: decide and measure out how much cold brew you want in your drink.

Step two: Add in the cold brew coffee cubes

Step three: Pour in the liquid cold brew (to your liking)

Step 4: decide on the amount of almond milk you’d like. Remember this one is sweetened, so if you don’t love it too sweet. Watch your pour!

…and that’s it! SUPER simple, right? It’s the yummiest, too.

Right now you can save 20% on select StōK cold brew coffee 8/5-9/8 on Cartwheel!

For those heading back to college, don’t forget the STōK coffee! You’ll thank me!

XOXO, terri
