This delicious pumpkin cream cold brew coffee Starbucks copycat is the PERFECT way to celebrate the change of the season. Slightly sweet and perfectly creamy made with real pumpkin puree and fragrant fall spices.
It might not officially be fall but I’m gonna be over here sipping this pumpkin cream cold brew coffee like it is!
Things are still pretty warm here in North Carolina but I’m officially on the fall train. Even though I’m still not giving up on my summertime tomato sandwich. I will eat that until the very end of tomato season.
But, other than tomatoes, I’m all about the arrival of fall.
Especially when it comes to my iced coffee drinking.
That’s why even though it’s technically still August I’m busting out this Starbucks copycat pumpkin cream cold brew coffee.
It’s so easy to make and PACKED full of warm fall spices mixed with heavy cream and real pumpkin puree.
This iced coffee drink is perfect for fall and the best part is that it doesn’t cost $6!
What is cold brew coffee?
Cold brew coffee is a process where you steep ground coffee in cold water.
Typically you let the coffee steep overnight, strain, and then store in the refrigerator.
Another great thing about cold brew is that it packs a bit more caffeine than typical drip coffee and it turns out less bitter.
What is pumpkin cream?
Pumpkin cream is a mix of heavy whipping cream, sweetener, warm fall spices, and pumpkin puree.
After it’s combined it’s lightly whipped to thicken it slightly and then spooned over the cold brew coffee.
It’s the perfect fall creamer for ice coffee!
Do I have to use pumpkin puree?
If you don’t want to use pumpkin puree you can skip the addition.
I really love the little addition of pumpkin puree but it won’t
What is in pumpkin pie spice?
We all know that pumpkin pie spice is all the rage.
If you’re still not sure what exactly pumpkin spice is I’m here to let you know!
It’s a simple mix that can be found at most grocery stores. If you can find it you can always make your own. It’s super simple and you might find that you already have most of those listed spices on hand.
You’ll need 3 tablespoons of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons nutmeg, 2 teaspoons cloves, 1 teaspoon allspice, and 1 teaspoon ground ginger to make your own mix. Simply store in an airtight container and use on all things fall-inspired.
Do I have to used cold brew coffee?
Because I made this as a Starbucks copycat recipe I used cold brew.
However, if you don’t have cold brew you can always use normal drip coffee or even espresso mixed with water in its place.
