If you’re reading this, odds are you consider yourself a Chameleon Cold-Brew lover. And firstly, let us say thank you! However, in order to fully embrace all that our cold-brew has to offer, it’s important to note there are many ways to enjoy our favorite buzz. While you shouldn’t feel the need to buy state-of-the-art coffee tools and gadgets, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ingredients that, if used correctly, can let your kitchen thrive for all of your cold brew wants (and needs!)
A healthy, chocolate taste is sometimes tricker said than done. Fortunately, we’ve stumbled across the best solution: cacao powder. To say the options of recipes with cacao powder are endless is an understatement. Sprinkle a dash of it onto your hot mug of mocha, mix it in to your recipe for delicious cold brew pop tarts, treat yourself to a vegan cold brew milkshake…you get our point. Cacao powder has transformed into our savior for any recipe requiring a chocolaty boost, and will now become yours, too.
Ah, yes, an oddly spelled version of the popular dairy drink. Whether you’re lactose intolerant, vegan, or just trying to find a healthier option, a non-dairy milk (or mylk) is your next kitchen’s go-t0. Need a frothy swirl to add with your concentrates? Try an almond milk, like New Barn. Want a Chameleon-infused morning bowl of cereal? Or an iced camou latte? Try coconut milk to mix-up your drink. Whichever “mylk” your tastebuds desire, any cold brew recipe will thrive with a dash your favorite.
While this ingredient may not be as versatile as some others, it is our number one go-to when needing a morning meal that packs a strong boost: overnight oats! You can literally use ANY of our cold-brew flavors to craft this recipe as unique to your tastebuds as you want it to be. Not only will chia seeds add an extra crunch to your breakfast, they are known to provide extra energy, and are filled with protein, fiber, antioxidants AND calcium.
The silent “r” may confuse you at first, but turmeric (pronounced Too-Mer-Ic) is a powerful, boosting spice your body will thank you for. This ingredient has been known to help clear skin, manage weight loss, and act as an anti-inflammatory. Another benefit? It pairs perfectly with any of our Chameleon Cold-Brew drinks – both concentrate and ready-to-drink. Upgrade your everyday latte, smoothie, and even cocktail recipe with this golden ingredient. You won’t regret adding it to your spice rack!
