Love Starbucks pumpkin cream cold foam? Us too. Actually, I ask for sweet cream on all sorts of other drinks too like pineapple refreshers. Makes them taste just like a Dole Whip! Creamy and delicious like whipped cream but even better. A fluffy and pretty way to enjoy and serve your cup of Joe.

  1. Heavy cream NOT milk is used as the base for the foam, providing a rich and creamy texture.
  2. Pumpkin flavored syrup or concentrate can be used, or add actual puree to add that unmistakable flavor to the foam.
  3. A blend of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice and cloves can be added if you like, but just a pinch
  4. We don’t find a need for added sweetener like sugar or a syrup but if you want yours extra sweet that is another option to add a splash into.

Then you are going to make coffee at home. Use a French press or Keurig to make a pot or a cup for one. Allow it to cool and add coffee ice cubes to get that part really cold (and not diluted). That is another tip to making the best cup of cold brew coffee with cold foam.

We make our Coffee Cake with Yellow Cake Mix first so after it’s done it can be served together. For the best results, start with a chilled mixing bowl and whisk. This helps the heavy cream whip up more easily. In the chilled bowl, combine heavy cream, pumpkin and if you want spices, and sweetener too. The exact measurements can vary depending on your taste preferences.

  1. Use a whisk, electric mixer, electric milk frother or regular whisk and some elbow grease to whip the mixture. You want it to reach a thick and frothy consistency like defrosted Cool Whip.
    • You want the foam to hold its shape but still be spoonable.
  2. Once it is ready, spoon it generously over your cold coffee beverage.
    • It will float on top, creating a beautiful layered effect.
  3. Sip slowly, letting the flavors of the Pumpkin Cold Foam mingle with the coffee beneath. Each sip is a delightful blend of creamy pumpkin goodness and the rich taste of your coffee.

If you are making this for a crowd you can certainly double or even quadruple the amounts listed below. You do want it to be fresh and used right away though for best results. Other tips you could follow for the optimal result is to refrigerate mason jars so they are cold and ready when you are done.

This is fabulous on top of all sorts of other Coffee Drink Recipe, next time you make one consider adding a dollop of this to your cold brew for a delicious taste of the season.
