Equipment

  • Hand mixer

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons powdered cane sugar or powdered coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ cup aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas, preferably unsalted)
  • 1 tablespoon rich non-dairy milk or creamer (I used an unsweetened oat milk creamer)
  • ice
  • approximately 1 ⅓ cups cold brew coffee

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, stir together the powdered cane sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. There will be little clumps. This is fine! Set aside.
  • Pour the aquafaba into a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, whisk the aquafaba on high until it’s super frothy and starting to hold its shape, about 1 full minute.
  • At this point, with the mixer still on, gradually add spoonfuls of the spiced powdered cane sugar mixture. Once you have it all added, keep whisking until you have a super frothy and foamy texture. Quickly add the non-dairy milk/creamer and get it incorporated before turning the mixer off.
  • Fill two 1-cup capacity glasses ⅔  of the way with ice. Divide the cold brew evenly between the two glasses.

Notes

  • When selecting your chickpeas for the aquafaba here, an unsalted variety is ideal. I’ve tried it with both though and the salted one was fine!
  • You could use any powdered sweetener you like! I’ve made versions with powdered cane sugar as well as powdered coconut palm sugar. Both were nice! The coconut palm one will be more of a tan colour.
  • Got an OLD recipe for cold brew on my site right here.
  • I’ve used a hand mixer to whisk up the aquafaba, but I imagine a high speed blender will get the job done too! Just run it on low and spoon in the powdered sugar through the feed tube when the time comes.
