Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Let’s face it. Pumpkin season is here and yet it’s still a tad warm in some areas so cold brew coffee is still refreshing. Or if you’re like me, cold brew is richly bold and amazing anytime!

I am a sucker for the pumpkin cream cold brew at Starbucks. A true sucker. You might be asking—what is a pumpkin cream cold brew? It is an iced coffee that has a layer of cold brew topped with a pumpkin cold foam. The foam is made using a mixture of cream (or half and half), milk, pumpkin, and spices. Super simple to whip with a frother, or blender, giving you that silky smooth topping.

I decided it was time to recreate their popular fall drink, and man am I glad I did. This pumpkin spice drink tastes exactly like their version but costs a fraction of the price and takes less than 5 minutes to make! Plus I can tweak it to my own taste preferences.

Here it is. So simple:


  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream or half and half
  • 2 tablespoons 2% or higher milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or pure cinnamon essential oil)
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ginger (or pure ginger essential oil)
  • 12 oz cold brew coffee
  • *if you opt to use essential oils, ensure that they are pure. I use this brand and can gladly coach you on proper use.


How to Make Pumpkin Sweet Cream

  • Combine the cream, milk, syrup, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a jar.
  • Using a frother, mix for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cream begins to foam.
  • Alternatively, you can use a blender or mix by hand. Any way you decide, this pumpkin creamer is going to be the perfect topping!


  • Add ice to 2 large glasses.
  • Pour 6 oz cold brew into each glass.
  • Divide the pumpkin sweet cream between the two glasses and enjoy.

One question I get often—

Can I make this dairy free?

Yes, but you will have a less foamy and creamy texture to your topping. I suggest trying oat milk for the heavy cream and milk.

Easy peasy and so much cheaper!
