‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I love all things pumpkin. From pumpkin coffee cake to pumpkin rice krispie treats, I can’t get enough.

But know what I am sick of?

Spending loads of money on my newest favorite addiction, the Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew.

If you haven’t tried it yet, YOU MUST.

While I love a good pumpkin spice latte, I feel like Starbucks over the past few years has changed the recipe and it’s very chemical tasting now. 

But the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew? So flavorful. 

So, instead of spending money on Starbucks every day, I can buy more ingredients to make my favorite pumpkin zucchini bread recipe from home.

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee

Today’s pumpkin cream coffee recipe starts with cold brew coffee. You can either buy a jug of it from the grocery store, buy the packets to make at home, or just whip up a pitcher of cold brew coffee using coffee beans you have at home.

Here’s how to start.

STEP 1: You’ll need about 1 cup of coarse ground coffee beans. Add the ground coffee with 4 cups of COLD water to a pitcher. Stir and refrigerate for 12-24 hours.

STEP 2: Place a strainer with cheesecloth over a large pitcher or bowl. Slowly pour coffee (with grounds) into the cheesecloth lined strainer until all the liquid has filtered through.

STEP 3: Dilute cold brew concentrate with a 2:1 ratio of cold water: concentrate. I usually just add an additional 4 cups of cold water. If you like it REALLY strong, use less water at this point.

Now you’re ready for the pumpkin cream!

How to Make Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Coffee

STEP 1: In a saucepan, combine heavy cream, sugar, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice. Whisk over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and cream mixture begins to steam. DO NOT BOIL.

STEP 2: Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and transfer to a pint sized mason jar (or pitcher). Refrigerate until cool.

PRO TIP: Chilling the pumpkin cream allows it to froth up easier. If you’re just plain eager to drink your coffee, you can pour it into your iced cold brew coffee immediately.

STEP 3: Once chilled, use an Aerolatte or milk frother to froth the pumpkin cream. Or shake vigorously in mason jar.

STEP 4: Fill large glass with ice. Add cold brew coffee, leaving space for cream. Pour in desired amount of frothy pumpkin cream. ENJOY.

Tips for making Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

  • For best results, I make the pumpkin cream and the cold brew the day before.
  • Why cold brew coffee? I find that cold brew removes the bitterness you might find when drinking iced coffee. You could use regular iced coffee if you prefer.
  • Foam not frothing? It’s okay. Still tastes amazing, pour it in!
  • I use this natural sugar substitute in place of the sugar in today’s recipe. It’s zero carb and doesn’t increase your glycemic index. GUILT FREE coffee drinking!
  • Serve it up with a big slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake for the ultimate fall treat.
