- 1 cup 35% heavy whipping cream—Alexandra says the whipping cream must be 35% so it’s thick enough to sit on top of the coffee without sinking to the bottom of the glass
- 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar or coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Ice cubes
- Cold brew
Step 1: Make the pumpkin cream
Combine the heavy whipping cream, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract in a Mason jar. Use a milk frother—if you don’t have one, we recommend this milk frother—to mix those ingredients into a smooth pumpkin cream.
Store the cream in the Mason jar with an air-tight lid in the refrigerator. You won’t need it all for this recipe.
Step 2: Prep your cold brew
Grab a glass and fill it with ice cubes and cold brew. Make sure you leave enough room in the glass for the pumpkin cream to fit comfortably on top.
Step 3: Finish the drink
Grab that pumpkin cream from the fridge and pour it gently onto the cold brew. It should rest nicely on top of the cold brew without sinking to the bottom. Sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice on top of the of the pumpkin cream.
Finally, your pumpkin cream cold brew is ready to transport you into the magic of a Starbucks-inspired fall!
