STARBUCKS lovers know that meeting their daily caffeine needs can be quite costly.
Luckily, a Starbucks fan shared how to make Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew with just three ingredients and it will save you a lot of money.
Coffee lover Paige Wade shared a step-by-step guide to making the sweet mix. video posted on her social media page.
First, she poured 16 ounces of Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks bottles into a glass jar with ice in the bottom.
She then added half a glass of Good & Gather heavy cream, although she said it could be divided equally between heavy cream and milk.
Paige then added two tablespoons of Torani vanilla syrup to the mix, the recommended serving size.
Finally, Paige swirled the mixture of cream and syrup and poured it into her coffee.
She stirred the drink with a straw and a viola: she had a homemade Vanilla Sweet Cream cold drink, which is just as good as the one bought at Starbucks.
The best part? This is part of the price.
A 16-ounce Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew at Starbucks in New York costs $4.75 before taxes.
By comparison, a 40-ounce bottle of beer from Starbucks costs $5.59 at the New York City Target, which rounds up to about $0.14 per ounce.
Next, Good & Gather heavy cream costs about 0.38 cents for half a cup, while Torani syrup costs about $0.22 for two tablespoons.
Thus, each serving of homemade coffee costs $2.84.
If the average Starbucks fan drinks a great cold drink with sweet vanilla cream five times a week, he will spend about $23.75.
Meanwhile, making a homemade cold drink five times a week costs $14.20, saving the average customer just under $10 a week.
It may not seem like much now, but it could be a savings of over $100 a year.
But if you prefer to buy official Starbucks coffee from the store, there are a few things you need to know.
First, an employee shared an embarrassing truth about the Starbucks drive-thru cameras.
Plus, another barista shared how to get the most bang for your buck by ordering an iced latte.
