Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Starbucks Copycat

Let’s learn how to make everyone’s favorite fall drink at Starbucks at home and even better! The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is the perfect drink when you want something not too sweet and just a subtle pumpkin spice taste.

If you’ve never had the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew drink from Starbucks, it’s basically cold brew that’s sweetened with vanilla syrup and then topped off with a pumpkin cream cold foam. Now if you’re not a huge pumpkin spice latte person like me, this drink is perfect for you. It’s still super festive and gives you all the fall vibes without being overpowering!

This drink can also be made with iced coffee, shaken espresso, or anything you like instead of cold brew! I like to brew two shots of espresso and add some sweet cream. Then I shake it around with ice to make a shaken espresso and top it off with the pumpkin cream cold foam. 

How To Make the Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam

To make the pumpkin cream cold foam, add the following ingredients to a deep bowl or mixing cup:

  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Heavy Cream
  • Whole or 2% Milk
  • Vanilla Syrup 
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk

For the milk, feel free to use whole milk or 2% milk! Either will work fine for this recipe. Starbucks uses 2% milk but I used whole milk since I had it on hand.

The sweetened condensed milk is optional. It adds a more creamy and sweet taste but if you’d like to make it sweeter, you can just add more vanilla syrup. I added 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to this recipe.

Once it’s all in there, use an electric whisk to whip it until it is thick and airy but make sure not to over whip it. You can use an electric whisk, blender, immersion blender, or whisk attachment on the stand mixer. You can also transfer it to a jar and shake it around a lot until it thickens or use a hand whisk and bowl to thicken it up but your hand might be tired by the end!

The Vanilla Syrup

You can purchase the Torani vanilla syrup from a lot of big grocery stores or even Target! Amazon also sells some other vanilla syrups like the Starbucks brand. 

If you can’t find it anywhere, you can also make it at home. Here’s how! Just add 1 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract to a pot. Bring to a boil and continue boiling until all the sugar dissolves and the syrup is clear. Then drop the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes until it thickens. Transfer to a jar or container and allow to cool to room temperature. It will thicken more as it cools too.

How To Make This Dairy-Free

Although I have not tried making it dairy-free, you can simply swap the heavy cream for a dairy-free creamer and use oat milk instead of whole or 2% milk!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup vanilla syrup
  • 1/3 cup whole milk or 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (add more for a stronger pumpkin spice taste)
  • cold brew, iced coffee, or iced espresso
  • vanilla syrup to sweeten coffee
  • additional pumpkin pie spice (to sprinkle on top)

Instructions
 

  • To a glass measuring cup, add the heavy whipping cream, pumpkin puree, vanilla syrup, milk, sweetened condensed milk, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Froth with a whisk for 30 seconds to 2 minutes until it's foamy and thick but not too thick so don't over whisk it. If doing it by hand, it will take a bit longer. If using an electric whisk, it'll froth really fast.
  • Add cold brew, iced coffee, or iced espresso to a glass along with some ice and vanilla syrup to taste, leaving about 2 to 3 inches of room at the top for the foam.
  • Add the pumpkin cream cold foam on top, as much or as little as you like. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice on top and enjoy!

Notes

Sweetness: To make the coffee sweeter, add more vanilla syrup or your favorite creamer. To make the Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam sweeter, add a tablespoon at a time of vanilla syrup OR condensed milk until it's perfect to your taste.
Dairy-free Version: I do not have any experience with dairy-free milks and cream in coffee but if you'd like to make this dairy-free, use a cream and milk that froths up the best.
Storing Leftovers: Transfer any leftover pumpkin cream cold foam in an air-tight container or jar and keep in the fridge for a week.

    Your pics look amazing! How much of the cream did you froth up per cup? And how much coffee/espresso/cold brew would you advise as well?

      Hi Sam! Thank you for the lovely comment. It all just depends on if you want a lot or a little of foam in your drink. I like to use 1/4 cup for my own drink and then 2 to 3 shots of espresso for my coffee shaken with ice. However you can use iced coffee or cold brew.
