I am so excited to share my dairy-free coffee recipe for winter. If you all remember, I had an obsession with cold-brew and drank it all summer.

I find it so relaxing to curl up with a cup of coffee on a cold winter morning or afternoon. My recipe isn’t anything fancy. There is just something about frothed milk that makes it feel fancy.
