If you’ve seen me on Instagram, you’ve seen me pour up a frothy coffee almost daily!
I drink coffee for two reasons, the morning ritual, and the taste. I don’t personally feel like I need coffee to function, and often times I drink decaf! If you love coffee, you should try this morning pick me up!
I make my own cold brew nightly, in my French press, and in the morning, I add a few things to the blender, and start my day with a big cup of frothy Joe. It feels like something special to me, and that makes it feel like a treat. Making cold brew at home is not only cost effective, but it’s so simple- I promise.
I get messages often asking how I make this, what do I put in it, so today I’m going to walk you through it step by step! It’s easy peasy, friends! Let’s get to it!.

#thatswhatshepours Frothy Coffee
1. The night before, scoop 3 heaping tablespoons of coffee into a French press. You can find one at most stores like target, or online at amazon, for around $20. If you’re fancy, feel free to use a flavored coffee. I alternated between a s’more flavor, and a coconut flavor all last summer, and it made this drink even better! Plain coffee is also great! Cover grounds with water, and allow to sit out overnight, this gives the coffee time to “cold brew”-which is beneficial if you have a sensitive stomach. Cold Brew is less acidic than drip coffee.
2. The next morning, all you have to do is push the lid down on the French Press, separating the grounds from the liquid, and you have Cold Brew ready to go!
3. In a blender, combine 2 Cups Cold Brew Coffee with 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Vanilla & Coconut Water Collagen Whey.
I love this protein blend because there aren’t any weird additives, it has whey protein for fuel, collagen for gut health and hair, skin, nail health, and you can actually see the tiny flecks of vanilla bean running through the powder. It’s darn good stuff.
4. Blend all ingredients on low until combined, 30 seconds or less. To make the coffee frothy, kick the blender speed all the way up to high, this pushes air into the liquid and gives the collagen a moment to “bloom”. If you’re not a fan of the “froth”, just pour over ice after all is combined on low! You could also blend the ice right into the drink for a more “frappe” feel, but I just pour the goods into a glass full of ice, pick a fun song, and start my day! Cheers!
