To make strawberry cold foam at home, start by preparing a batch of cold foam using your preferred method. You can either make it from scratch using milk or a non-dairy alternative and a frother, or opt for store-bought cold foam for convenience. Next, gently fold fresh, homemade, or store-bought strawberry puree into the cold foam. For a hint of sweetness, you can add a touch of honey or sugar to taste, although the natural sweetness of the strawberries is often enough to satisfy. Keep in mind that store-bought puree will likely already have added sugar.

Once you have your cold foam and strawberry puree ready, simply mix them until well combined. Then, carefully spoon the strawberry-infused foam onto your cold brew coffee, allowing it to cascade gently over the surface for that social media-worthy presentation. And just like that, you've recreated the magic of Starbucks' strawberry cold foam in the comfort of your kitchen.

When simply craving a fruity twist on your morning brew, this homemade delight is sure to hit the spot. So, take a tip from the TikTok trend and Starbucks menu alike and give this delicious spin on your favorite coffee a try.
